Shipyard Brewing – Pumpkinhead (2013)

NicAA: Very clear light orange, no head retention. Nose is predominantly cinnamon and clove. Slight brown sugar sweetness. 6/10

NicTM: Fairly thin, med carbonation. Some spices, mostly cinnamon again, maybe a touch of molasses. A little sweet malt. 6/10

NicP: It sort of isn’t. Not much pumpkin meat flavor, if it’s there it is weak extract at best. Mostly a spiced beer. 2p

NicO: A cherished gateway to pumpkin for many of us, it isn’t bad, but it’s also nothing special. Spiced pumpkin-lite. 65/100

AlexAA: Transparent yellow-hued orange w/ cloves, too much cinnamon and some nutmeg to the nose 6/10

AlexTM: super carbonated w/ vanilla enveloping the cinnamon and nutmeg, has a Sprite-like tang and feel. 6/10

AlexP: The pumpkin flavor is faint and can barely match the copious amount of vanilla. 2Pumpkins

AlexO: My Hocus Pocus watching beer of youth in ME – good for sessioning, but I need something w/ body & real pumpkin. 64/100
