Thanks to Jesse13713 for sharing a bottle of this with me.

A: Pours a clear yellow color, just a tad darker than an adjunct lager might look. A thin coating of very light head tops off the glass, which subsides quickly.

S: Light pumpkin/squash and spice aromas, a bit sweet.

T: Sweet with pumpkin and spice overtones; once again, pretty faint and the taste pales in comparison to most pumpkin ales.

M: Very light-bodied with light carbonation. Very little body, which makes the finish rather weak- there's just a bit of indiscriminate spice lingering in my mouth.

O: Compared to the wealth of good pumpkin beers out there, this is one I'm not sure I would choose over any of them. Spend the extra money for Smashed Pumpkin if you're intent on trying a Shipyard pumpkin beer.
