A solid pumpkin ale, this tastes just like pumpkin pie. If you looking for pumpkin pie in a bottle this is it, not over spiced and drinkable. Great color and smell.

12 oz. bottle from Total Wine in Virginia Beach. Pours brownish-orange with a foamy off-white head. Aroma of pumpkin, faint cinnamon and nutmeg, and even more faint hops. The flavor is really nice; sweet pumpkin and bold pumpkin pie spices are perfectly integrated so that none of the flavors tend to overwhelm. Slight alcohol warmth on the finish but it is very welcome. One of the best pumpkin beers I have tried.

Bottle at Churchkey. Orange amber pour with a small head. Nose and flavor both hold nice clove, pumpkin, light sweet malt, nutmeg, cinnamon, and a touch of earthiness. Crisp, easy drinking palate. Solid.

Schlafly Pumpkin Ale pours a very dark amber color. The head is short but leaves some lacing. The aroma is pumpkin spice and nutmeg. I also detect an earthy smell in there. The taste is malty sweet, but the spices tend to mellow out the sweetness. This is medium-bodied and finishes nicely with a spicy punch.

The gap between really good pumpkin ales and the rest is pretty expansive. This is a really good one. It pours a dark amber with a fair white head. The nose is spicy and fantastic--lots of cinnamon, nutmeg, apple pie, and pumpkin. Many pumpkin ales have a really think mouth feel and depth of flavor, but not this one. Pumpkin pie spices dominate. This is a really spicy pumpkin ale and I dig it. The Weyerbacher Imperial Pumpkin ale has always been my go-to this time of year. Ill need to drink this Schlafly offering alongside the Weyerbacher to pick one, because theyre both great.

Reddish brown with a cm of quickly fading tan head. Aroma is sweet and a bit earthy with nutmeg and cinnamon. Taste is mostly the same, and pretty well in line with all other pumpkin, with some heavier bits of spice astringency and some vanilla into the finish. $2/12oz

Reviewed from notes Pours a slightly hazy brown with a slight off white head. Nose of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove. Taste was a lot of spice with a less pumpkin than expected. An very well put together pumpkin bear, not the greatest I have had but well above par.

Bottle. Pours slightly hazy brown with a small head. Smells of sour pumpkin and some spice. Taste... oh. This IS pumpkin pie. Pumpkin, spice, crust, and cream. Wow.

Small soapy tan head sits atop a clear orange/brown body. Minimal, spotty lacing . The nose is ripe with all those familiar pumpkin pie spices and some pumpkin flesh. First sip was unexpectedly sweet, though absolutely delicious! Notes of Graham cracker accompany an intense, yet drinkable pumpkin pie profile in the finish. Medium/short palate duration is made up for by a slightly slick, medium/full mouthfeel that gives this pumpkin brewhaha the oooomph it needs to be considered a great pumpkin ale, imo. I love pumpkin beers and this is now one of my faves. Thanks, Schlafly!
