Week 2 of the Schlafly Pumpkin Ale did it come out too early taste test. Let’s see how it does.
The color isn’t going to change so don’t hope for that to happen. The aroma was very cinnamon and nutmegy. The taste again was very cinnamony, nutmegy, with just a hint of cloves. I think the nutmeg toned down and the cinnamon became more apparent, but I could be wrong. The initial taste still reminds me of the first bottle in that it’s pretty much all spices. Overall, I would give it a 10-15% improvement on flavor but still very spice intense. I’m starting to wonder if there is any amount of time that will cause the malts and spices to compliment each other and not override each other. Still way too sweet.
My thoughts are to still let this one sit. Week 2 saw an improvement but it’s still pretty intense.
