Special Release Pumpkin Ale

Special Release Pumpkin Ale

Schlafly The Saint Louis Brewery

Saint Louis, Missouri

ABV 8% IBU 16

Appearance- Dark walnut brown with a thick body minimal light passing through. Light to no head retention.

Aroma- It smells like a delicious pumpkin pie! The sweet aroma of the pumpkin with notes of nutmeg, cinnamon and clove tickling your nose.

Taste- The sweet taste hits you right up front and stays on the tongue. The sweetness is joined with a burst of spices and ends with the ultimate prize, the pumpkin.

Mouthfeel- The beer comes across silky smooth and settles in with a heavy overall mouth feel.

Overall- This is an amazing beer! It has everything I look for in a pumpkin beer and its more like a pumpkin pie with an ale aftertaste. Now I know I’m biased and my favorite beer is a pumpkin ale and this wonderful beer ranks right up there along side it. Special thanks to my friends Mike and Jenn for giving me the chance to try this beer out.

4.75 – 5
