12oz bottle into a snifter. Pours a slightly hazy dark orange with a thin cap for a head that fades into a ring around the side of the glass. Not really any lacing to speak of. Aroma is cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, and graham cracker. A very pleasant fall spiciness and really captures the pumpkin pie aroma perfectly. Not overtly spicy whatsoever. Flavor is very near perfection. Some squashy-ness up front quickly followed by a healthy wallup of cinnamon and nutmeg. A quick shot of vanilla along with some whipped cream but the spices hold strong. Never do they become overwhelming but rather quite nicely balance with everything else. Bitterness is extremely light and nearly imperceptible. This beer is just a touch sweet and not a sugar bomb like so many pumpkin beers. A nice, dry finish with just a hint of warmth from the alcohol. Overall, one of the best pumpkin beers out there. Very well balanced and not sweet at all. I could honestly drink a couple of these in a sitting. One to pick up every year.

Iím not the type of person who likes pumpkin beers. In fact, I could do entirely without the autumn pumpkin release trend. Schlafly Pumpkin Ale was a game-changer. This stuff is like liquid pumpkin pie. Except itís better than some pumpkin pies Iíve tried. The nutmeg, clove, and cinnamon are used perfectly. The pumpkin doesnít taste like it came from a pumpkin candle for once and the rich, creamy malt isnít buried by all the other flavors. I want this beer on my Thanksgiving table.

Nice mixed aroma of spices, caramel, candy corn, and cinnamon. Nice deep orange color with a tan head. Wow, nice creamy malt up front. Nice mix of spiciness and sweet. Flavors taste authentic, not fake. Bitterness fades in nicely with some heat from the spiciness. Creamy mourthfell. Best pumpkin beer Iíve ever had by far.

Bottled on July 29th, 9 days ago. Maybe my favorite pumpkin beer. Pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla. I know itís early August, but this beer makes me yearn for fall.

On tap half pint at Bradley's Food and Beverage in Bethesda, MD. Clear, reddish brown with a khaki head and good lacing. Aroma of pumpkin pie with all the usual spices, caramel and pumpkin fruit. Taste of a delicious pumpkin pie with an abundance of pumpkin fruit blended nicely with all the usual pie spices. I'm detecting a little caramel and peach as well. Medium body and medium/high carbonization. An excellent "liquid pumpkin pie." ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From notes. Tasted some time near the fall of 2012 from a capped 12oz bottle. Pours deep, dark orange with an average tan head that leaves thin lace. The nose is just like a spiced pumpkin pie, plenty of cinnamon, nutmeg, and baked pumpkin. The flavor is has a lot of additional caramel malt that is a bit sweeter than I would like, but tastes like a pumpkin pie otherwise with some bitterness from the baking spices. The body is medium with average carbonation and a long spiced pumpkin finish.
