Shipyard Brewing Co. – Pugsley’s Signature Series Smashed Pumpkin (2013)

10 Sep

AlexAA: this thicker ale has both a sweetened cider-like aroma and appearance. 6/10

AlexTM: saccharine syrup cloys over most flavors in this ale, but vanilla & brown sugar linger the longest. 3/10

AlexP: Strong pumpkin dressed up in cinnamon, which eventually pours thru when it warms. 6Ps

Alex:O: So sweet, it’s painful, literally. And not the new Merriam-Webster definition, either. 60/100

NicAA: Light orange w. a rapidly disappearing head. Sweet brown sugar and cinnamon, smells like fairground candied apple. 6/10

NicTM: Cinnamon and brown sugar and gobs of nutmeg too. Med body, low carb. Vanilla clogs the sickly sweet finish. 6/10

NicP: Not getting a lot, it’s drowned out in the brown sugar and heavy vanilla. So heavy on the extras I can’t find it. 2p

NicO: Nicer warm, but so sugary I feel like my teeth are furry. Late fall fireside beer, or for if you skip a meal. 69/100
