This is by far my new favorite Fall Season beer. Most Fall beers are dark with multiple spices added and it's difficult to taste the seasonal spices.
This beer is slightly cloudy, slightly darker than a traditional wheat beer, but this beer you can actuallytaste a sweet pumpkin and cinnamon finish. Excellent beer !!!

Bottle as shown. Pours a clear gold with no head. The aroma is cinnamon and spice. Thin mouthfeel with sweet corn malt and spice. Decent.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Presentation: 12 oz. brown bottle. No freshness date. Served in a Samuel Adams sensory glass.
Appearance: Thick two finger head that holds fairly well. Very clear, dark yellow color. Lacing is very nice all the way to the bottom.
Smell: Smells very strongly of allspice. Seems to me itís meant to remind you of pumpkin pie but itís just too strong.
Taste: The smell carries over into the taste. The allspice is very strong on the palate. Thereís a bit of malt in there but thatís about it. Itís very sweet and does not taste like a beer at all.
Mouthfeel: Almost no carbonation. Itís very light and easy to drink. Feels more like a soda thatís gone flat than a beer.
Overall: For a beer called "Pumpkinhead Ale", youíd expect, firstly at least some pumpkin and secondly, an ale. This "beer" is disappointing on both fronts. Thereís no pumpkin to be smelled or tasted at all. On the "ale" part, well Iím just not sure where that comes from. Itís more like an allspice soda, I guess. Not the worst beer in the world, but most certainly one of the worst pumpkin ales out there. If you see these on the shelf at your local store, just skip right over it, youíre not missing anything.

Admittedly not one of my favorite styles but this was a good one. Light and with more nutmeg than most. Nice in a 6 ounce serving.

Bright clear gold beer. No real head. Light crispy palate. Sweet pumpkin, a little tangy. Trace of orange. Prefectly spiced (ie not too much). Finishes semi dry. To date the best pumpkin beer Iíve had.

Shipyard brewing Pumpkinhead
Nutmeg and pumpkin only. Taste is a sweet bitter gourdy flavour. Light bodied and thin. It looks like all the effort was put into the smashed pumpkin series and this one got left behind.
