Schlafly Pumpkin Ale Commercial Description:
“Schlafly Pumpkin Ale blends the spices of the harvest with full-bodied sweetness for a beer that tastes like pumpkin pie. Pounds of pumpkin form a malty foundation that supports the fall flavors of cinnamon, nutmeg and clove.
While pumpkin beers were produced in the early days of the American colonies, they were different from the pumpkin beers we know today. Colonists used pumpkin and squash as the fermenting medium, since malted barley was scarce. Once malt became more readily available, it replaced these alternatives to grain. In the 1990’s, American craft brewers reintroduced the style to the delight of pumpkin beer drinkers.”

Like a stinky cheese in a humid night, this beer lingers. However, unlike a stinky cheese…Schlafly Pumpkin Ale is awesome. I would consider Schlafly Pumpkin Ale a “win-win;” not only does it have a wonderful cinnamon floral yet slightly bitter taste, but it also is perfect as a base beer to start your night with. Have a few of these, and at 8 percent…you’re happy. In closing, I may not be able to pronounce Schlafly’s name, but I love these beers.
