Poured from 12 oz bottle into pint glass. Flavor has a lot of pumpkin spice and a light malt and hop palate. Tastes almost like drinking pumpkin bread. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz bottle from Wegman’s, West Seneca, NY. AMber with a ring of white head; pumpkin aroma; cinnamon taste and finish, but also bland and watery. I’m not exactly a fan of this style, and this one’s worse than most.

Pours a amber with minimal head and lace. Ends up just clinging to sides of glass in seconds. Aroma is pumpkin pie or spice cookie. Taste is the same, and sweet. Tastes like a store bought pie to me. If you like to drink pie than here’s your beer. Seeing lower ratings sometimes and I try things I say what are they talking about but not this time. Not my cup of tea.

The aroma is very annoying. Smells like something that wasn't fermenting quite right. More of an Octoberfest-type wheat than a pumpkin. Pretty disappointed for being a Shipyard. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I see a lot of negative overall ratings for this beer but if you’re a fan of wheat beers and you love pumpkin pie, you will love this beer.

Its body has a clear, golden amber color with a thin off white head. The body is full of visible carbonation and still the head quickly fizzles down to just a very thin wispy layer. Lacing is minimal and very slick. The aroma is very pleasing but light. There are notes of cinnamon toast, light grain and apple cinnamon cereal. Like the aroma the flavor is light bodied and a little thin. Also there is no real pumpkin flavor. It does have a nice apple cinnamon crumb cake/carrot cake like taste. The finish is quick and fairly clean with maybe just a little bit of sweet spice hanging on. It has lots of active carbonation and with its thin texture it makes for a fizzy feel on the tongue.

A solid seasonal and one of my favorite pumpkin beers. There are so many pumpkin beers and it is nice to find one that stands out.
