A- straw colored, it just looks thin, with minimal head.
S-the best way I can describe it is skittles. Nothing in the area of pumpkin spice is detected.
T-yeesh. A little bit of orange peel... With a bit of.. Skittles. And all spice.
F- thin and watery, not exactly my ideal pumpkin beer.
Overall- pass. Hard pass.

Pouring an orange gold, Shipyard Pumpkinhead gives off a heavy head of cinnamon smells. The other pie spices are more subdued, with a whisp of vanilla or graham cracker. It starts sweet and smooth, but transitions to a higher carbonation and a watery body in short order. The flavors are pretty much based in cinnamon, but theres a touch of pumpkin, hints of other spices, and a little bitterness to the gourd like flavor. The aftertaste is super short, just a touch squashy, a hint of honey and cinnamon
