Schlafly Pumpkin Ale Review

Article by FisterRoboto of lefthandhorror.com

 

Brewed by Saint Louis Brewery/Schlafly Tap Room

$9.99/sixpack

Style: Pumpkin Ale

8.0% ABV

Serve at 45-50

Enjoyed from a snifter

A: Rusty/copper color with two finger of creamy froth. Nice sticky lacing.

S: Very inviting. Great balance of pumpkin, cloves, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Pumpkin beers are an afterthought to a lot of us based on the terrible balance between the actual ale and under/overwhelming ingredients. This ale is right where it needs to be with the aroma.

T: Almost identical to the nose. Well balanced blend of the pumpkin and spices, a light touch of brown sugar and caramel make this a true seasonal hit.

M: Medium-bodied with ample carbonation. It leaves you anticipating the next sip. Perfect for the style.

O: An amazing fall brew. While it might be the most complex of the pumpkin ales, it certainly might be the most balanced. This is in there with Pumking and Punkin for sure. This seems to be getting better over the years, it might be time for a taste test between this, Southern Tier and DFH. This is a perfect brew for the much-anticipated fall season, sure to compliment the horror movies and falling leaves. Get some before the cold of November rolls in.

  1. Hmmm…I will have to look for this. I’m in love with STBC Pumking, but no distribution on the west coast yet. 😦
