Wow, two years ago, I loved the Shipyard Pumpkin, then last year, it was down on my list of any pumpkin ale. This year, its back up on top.
I was a bit shocked when I looked at some of the reviews regarding this beer. Well, everyone has their own tastes and likes.
When I poured this one, the first thing I detected was a good amount of pumpkin, cinnamon and nutmeg along with some other fall spices. Nothing hit you right in the face, but all of it was there just waiting for you to taste it and enjoy it.
There was a good amount of carbonation, which I do like in a pumpkin ale.
So far, this year, with all the pumpkin ales I've tasted this one ranks at the top (Though their SMASHED PUMPKIN is above everything).
I think the best thing to notice is that each year, the various brewery that put out Pumpkin ales, change the style that they make. What was at the top of my favorites this year, dropped down and what was at the bottom came up.
You know what! Who really cares! Its all about the enjoyment of a beverage that someone has taken the time to make it their best
