COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Smashed Pumpkin is a big-bodied beer with a light coppery orange color and pleasing aroma of pumpkin and nutmeg. The OG and final Alc./Vol. provide the structure and body. Pale Ale, Wheat and Light Munich Malts combine with the natural tannin in pumpkin and the delicate spiciness of Willamette and Hallertau Hops to balance the sweetness of the fruit. To fully enjoy all the flavors, this ale is best drunk at 55 degrees Fahrenheit. Smashed Pumpkin pairs well with sharp cheeses, nuts, lamb, hearty stews and desserts like flan or pumpkin pie. Chefs find this an excellent beer to cook with in dishes such as braised short ribs.

Shipyard Smashed Pumpkin Pours orange/copper with a medium white head and ok retention. Strong aroma of cinnamon and pumpkin pie. Flavor is some bitter hops, but not a ton with a bunch of pumpkin pie. Crisp bubbly mouthfeel with a nice clean finish. Spicy bitter and pretty good, but a little gimmicky.

0.65L bottle kindly shared by larsga. Low offwhite head, slowly fading to a ring of bubbles. Body is near clear, orangey-golden. Cinnamon and nutmeg, apple-pie and sweetish malts to the nose. Sweet, medium full malt body. Generously spiced, over the top maybe. Mid-bodied. Light soapy, light astringent mouthfeel. Spicy endnotes with an alcohol sting.

Small offwhite head doesn’t last. Light amber body. Sugary spicy nutmeg and cinnamon aroma, very harmonic and delicate. Dry-sweet intense nutmeg and cinnamon taste with apple notes. Hot mouthfeel. Fullish body. Dryish spicy alcohol and paper aftertaste with fruit notes. Very nice, but perhaps a bit spicy and sweet. (0.65l bottle, Systembolaget, Stockholm.)
