Shipyard "Pumpkinhead Ale"
Pumpkin Ale (ABV 5.1%)

[Best served in a Lager glass]

Rating: 2.4/5.0

Aroma: 7/10
Appearance: 2/5
Taste: 5/10
Palate: 2/5
Overall: 8/20

The pour was a sparkling clear light amber with an average sized (1-2 finger) white fizzy head that quickly dissipated and had almost no lacing to speak of.

The aroma was extremely light of a light bread malt and a doughy yeast with very mild hints of nutmeg, pumpkin, cinnamon and some brown sugar.

The taste was super lightly sweet with an almost non existent hint of nutmeg and brown sugar at first. Then it became ever so lightly bitter with a hint of cinnamon and a light touch of pumpkin at the finish, with the flavor disappearing almost immediately after the swallow.

Mouthfeel was incredibly light in body and very watery in texture with a fizzy carbonation.

Overall an extremely light beer with the flavor being very subtle with no lingering effect at all. For a Pumpkin Ale the aroma was nice and well balanced, but it lacked slightly in flavor and body.
