My Bottom Line:
Orange-scented tea leaves meet lightly biscuity and caramelized cereals in this bubbly, mineral Pale Ale.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A frothy head of foam settles atop the misty amber.
-The mouthfeel is fluffy and comfortable; poundable even.
-The finish is a continuation of the flavor profile: light sweetness, fruitiness and leafy hop bitterness.
-This is a good gateway beer for those who might be willing to make the jump into a world of flavor without going all the way into something pungent.

Bottle.

12 oz bottle poured into a stemmed Belgian tulip glass. The aroma is buttered toast and caramel candy. It pours a slightly hazy oily orange with a soapy white head that reduces to a medium thick ring with a decent splotch of a head island left on the surface and leaves very little lace. The taste is a medium sweet and medium light bitter. The oily texture comes with a light, fuzzy carbonation and a medium body. The finish is orange, buttered toast, caramel candy, and some resin and or wood chips. It’s mostly clean aftertaste keeps some lemon zest, orange zest, caramel, and grass.

12 oz bottle from backlog notes. Pours a clear amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have pale malts, toasted, some cookie malt character, earthy hops, a hint of caramel, pretty average pale ale, but I can see why this would be a go to beer in St. Louis.

I am not typically a fan of this brewery but their flagshit is definitely a solid brew and frankly the first one I’lve had from them that made it make sense they were in business still at all. . It is a nice looking beer: bright orange w/ a long lasting head of fine bubbles. The nose is a nice mix of tofee-like and toasty malt w/ some slightly citric, slightly earthy hops w/ a hint of cherry-like ale yeast fruitiness. Flavor is simple sweet maltiness which brings out an apple note. The carbonation is crisp and maybe very slightly overly vigorous. My only complaint is a slight medicinal overtone in the firmly bitter finish. I think I have tried half a dozen beers from Schlafly which have ranged from tolerable to terrible but this one is a well done subtle take on an English bitter or pale ale. It is not flawless and does not have the malt depth of the very best of the style but it tastes good and I could drink a lot of it if I wanted too. That is good enough for me.

Being from St. Louis and having this be one of my earliest go-to craft beers, it's tough to rate this. Aroma is citrusy with strong malt notes. Malty, grapefruit flavor with almost zero hop dank, which I love oh so much. Low ABV. Overall decent Pale Ale from a great St. Louis brewery. Go Cardinals. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DuffMan (6552) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 23, 2014
Bottle, shared with Parksy. Light amber, low head. Mild aroma of light caramel. Flavour is grainy caramel with hardly any hop identity to speak of. Thin mouthfeel. Not good.

Schlafly Pale Ale: get it ice cold and enjoy. A great beer from a great Missouri family brewer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
