Shipyard Pumpkinhead

Shipyard Pumpkinhead

This Pumpkin Ale is brewed out of Portland ME at the Shipyard Brewery. It has a 5.1% ABV and is available as a Fall Seasonal.

I found this beer to pour out a light golden color that almost looks like a cider. It creates a decent head that has almost no retention and very little lace. The aroma is very faint and it consists of light spices, and a touch of nutmeg. The taste of this beer seemed slightly watered down with just hints of spice and nutmeg before it finishes slightly sweet.

Overall I was slightly let down by this beer. I felt that it could use a bit more of a punch from the spices and nutmeg. If you want to give it a shot do so soon before it is to late.

Cheers!
