A beer that's easy drinking yet big enough to keep it in check, regardless of whether or not you want to finish off the whole six-pack. There’s a slight menthol end to the beer from the cloves, and overall the beer is heavy on the traditional pumpkin pie spices of cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice. Malty beer notes poke through the spice and alcohol. Americans like their pumpkin in pie form, where it tastes as little like actual pumpkin as possible. Schlafly’s Pumpkin Ale is pumpkin pie, but in beer form.
