Shipyard Pumpkinhead Ale is a crisp and refreshing wheat ale with delightful aromatics and subtle spiced flavor

Golden beer with a small, disappearing white head. Aroma is musky--a bit like socks. Flavor is very thin, with too much bite. The finish is slightly sweet, but almost non-existent.

The Dan Journal #51. Tasted 10/22/06. Final selection from the autumn tasting. 12oz bottle. Bright and golden. Spicy citrus aromas. Honey melon. Medium bodied with an apple cider palate. Similar flavors. Cloying finish. Not my favorite pumpkin.

Woof. Hate this beer. Brownish amber with an off white head. Tastes like a mash of sweet potato, pumpkin pie, gingerbread, and cinnamon. All thatís missing is the turkey, the cranberry and the green bean casserole and you would have Thanksgiving in a bottle! Far too sweet and in-your-face with the pumpkin.

Golden color, poor head. To me this is simply a very ordinary Golden Ale, without character, with a light cinnamon aroma and flavor, as it is often associated to pumkin recipes.

Aroma of real ginger-beer, sweet and slightly spicy. Pours a nearly headless transparent pale yellow. Tastes like some sort of ginger-ale concoction with lots of vanilla and a touch of pulpy pumpkin, but very little. Thin body, low carb, more pop than beer.

UPDATED: SEP 19, 2007 Poured an golden yellow almost orange color with a thin white head. Pumpkin and spice flavors come through in the aroma, and follows just the same in the flavor. Not an overwhelming pumpkin flavor which is good. It is a light bodied ale that finishes smooth with the spice on your tongue. This years version is not as good as it used to be. It is really watered down and overcarbonated with very little spice or pumpkin for that matter. Really disappointed in it.

porterhouse (1581) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - MAY 24, 2007
(Bottle (best before 2/07)) Lousy...Pours slightly hazy light amber-gold with three fingers of off-white head. Aroma is sort of vanilla and light pumpkin pie spice, including nutmeg. Mouthfeel is trademark Shipyard: thin, watery, quite prickly. Flavor is some weak, stale watery caramel and some artificial-tasting pumpkin pie spice. Their "flavored" beers have a real artificial quality and are really bad.

A very nice pumpkin ale, very big fan of clove, and this brew has plenty, some nutmeg aroma, finishes very clean, dry, not overly sweet, I enjoyed it.

This has the best flavor of any pumpkin ale I have tried. Would be amazing if it had the body of Buffalo Billís Pumpkin Ale. The high not however, is the flavor. Really strong flavor or pumpkin and spices. I can close my eyes and imagine itís a real pumpkin pie. If you ever see this, give it a shot.

Cloudy golden color with a small, disappearing white head, no lacing. Aroma of pumpkin pie was quite powerful and I"m glad the taste was slightly more subtle. My first try with the Shipyard and Iím pleased. This would be a fine Thanksgiving appertif.
