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.

22oz at Toad in the Hole. Clear amber with low ecru head. Intense cookie spice and vegetal canned pumpkin aroma, which is better than that sounds; it’s possibly a Pavlovian nostalgia at work. Rather harsh alcohol up front that melds into some pepper and clove bite with a modicum of maple sugar. I disagree with the label’s declaration of this being a big-bodied beer; it’s clearly a massive beer, but not thick or sticky.

Djup orangefärg – mycket tunt skum Doften överraskar mig lite och består av tydliga inslag av pepparkakor (!!) och kanske en aning jordgubb. Smaken är också mycket speciell. Det är lite svårt att säga vad den smakar, men förmodligen är det pumpa (fast jag har aldrig smakat pumpa, så hur skulle jag kunde säga att det smakar pumpa? Får prova äta pumpa någon gång så jag vet om det är pumpa jag smakar i denna pumpa-ölen). Till dess säger vi så här att den är lite söt, “

UPDATED: OCT 31, 2011 *** Halloween 2010*** This is a big pumpkin beer! Pours a beautiful golden copper color with a thin white head. The pumpkin pie spices float out of this as well as a sweet alcohol flavor, both of which let you know what’s coming. A big sweetness hits first followed by well balanced spices of cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves, and then a real pumpkin flavor. This is accompanied by caramel and butterscotch, and then a good bitterness to tie all of it together. Leaves with fullness and more pumpkin. Definitely one of the best and biggest pumpkin ales out there. ***Halloween 2011*** Enjoying some Smashed Pumpkin again as I hand out candy and scare the kiddies! Just as I remembered it, possibly with even more vegetal pumpkin flavor. Delicious!

31-10-10 Dans un grand lager glass: Rousse pâle-orangée, très effervescente, limpide. Petite mousse blanche. Bulles remontent rapidement et gracieusement a la surface. Très faible arômes de citoruilles fraîches, de pâte a tarte et de muscade. Pâteuse, avec des saveurs de citrouilles, maltée, tout en fraîcheur. En saveur, petite touche de muscade et encore plus petite de cannelle. Légèrement sucrée, elle a une bonne amertume en bouche et encore plus grande en finale. Asser astringente au palais. Finale trop amer.

Amber orange-ish with minimal head with no scent of pumpkin. Taste a bit of pumpkin, but not as much as I expected. I would suggest the other Ship Yard Pumpkin 6 pack over this bomber. This isnt even in the same ball park, with a outrageous price.

First Shipyard beer I actually enjoyed! This one pours a vibrant tangerine/brown with a 1/2 inch eggshell head that left lacing. Aroma of nutmeg, cinnamon, cooked pumpkin and malt. Flavor is quite bold with lots of pumpkin pie coming through along with caramel, toffee, and brown sugar. Medium mouthfeel...really pretty good.

Pours a golden orange. Smells and tastes strongly of nutmeg perhaps allspice. Tastes vaguely of pumpkin. Very sweet which takes away from the rest of the flavor, some bitterness would have been nice.

Had while carving pumpkins. Pour is a nice clear darker orange. Nice white head. Aroma is full of spice and pumpkin. Flavor is the same. Nice brew.

Had this with the FU crew during alumni weekend. Besides pumking this is my 2nd favorite pumpkin ale.

22oz bottle. Very tasty real pumpkin beer. Not one of these cinnamon and clove spiced beers that is called a pumpkin beer and tastes nothing like pumpkin. There is a little bit of spice working in the aroma with a bit of cinnamon. The flavor is definite pumpkin though. Smooth and slightly sweet.
