Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. A friend at work gave this to me and was really excited to get his hands on it because it was one of his favorite beers. So I was excited to give it a go. Oh, dear.
It poured a light, cloudy gold color with a big fluffy white head. Not a great start. Looked strange.
The aroma was definitely pumpkin related spices but also very metallic and to be honest almost smelled like coca cola.
The taste was about the same, lots of nutmeg and pumpkin with some graham cracker and more cola.
The mouth was very thin and watery, and again felt like I was drinking a new Pumpkin Coke rather than a pumpkin ale. Whatever Shipyard was trying to do here, they swung and missed. But hey, at least they impressed the IT guy at work.
