Pours dark amber. Aroma of clove and cinnamon, like mulled wine or cider. Taste is moderately sweet, spicy, malty, with a whisper of hops and alcohol. Mouthfeel is strong and pleasant.

Robe cuivrée, mousse moyennement. Saveurs rondes de canelle, citrouille, clou de girofle, noix de muscade et sucre candy. Le final est sur une note de malt toasté. Moyennement longue en bouche. Texture légèrement crémeuse. Trop épicée à mon goût, mais une bonne bière.

12 ounce bottle. Copper color with a large creamy taupe head. Wonderful pumpkin aroma has notes of cinnamon, mace and nutmeg. Rich, creamy toasted malt flavor with all right spices. Cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, ginger and more. There is a touch of brown sugar as well. Slightly bittersweet in the finish. This ranks right up their with the best pumpkin ales I have tasted. A pleasant surprise.

Pours a hazy copper color with a white head. Aromas of pumpkin nutmeg and a little cinnamon. Taste the same with some malty sweetness. Nice lacing in the glass. Medium palate. Really nice ale. Little alcohol but nut to much. Very nice complex flavor.

Pours deep copper with medium beige head that quickly dissipates, leaving slight skim. Excellent aroma of pumpkin and pie spices. Clove, cinnamon and nutmeg are all there in the glass, but not so much that they overwhelm the baked pumpkin and butternut squash flavors. That’s augmented by hints of peach, caramel and vanilla. Medium body, restrained carbonation, sweetish without being cloying and a finish that is true to the rest of the glass. A good start to the season: Schlafly has made a contender for the best American pumpkin beer, and a model for how to keep a brew balanced while hitting a specific flavor profile.

I’m 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 it’s better than some pumpkin pies I’ve tried. The nutmeg, clove, and cinnamon are used perfectly. The pumpkin doesn’t taste like it came from a pumpkin candle for once and the rich, creamy malt isn’t buried by all the other flavors. I want this beer on my Thanksgiving table.

UPDATED: SEP 12, 2015 Dark, sweet, gets better with each drink. The flavor is definately there. Would prob rate higher but this beer is not my style. One is plenty for me but nice effort here by schlafly.
