Amber in color with excellent clarity. A fingernail of off white head covers half of the top. Aroma of pumpkin and clove are what I detect. The flavor is heavy with cinnamon,allspice,and clove. The body is moderately carbonated and aggressively spiced.

I have had this one in the past, at the time it and Pumking were the two best I had ever had, I liked this one more the night I drank it with Pumking. So, a few years removed and this was the last of the two "pumpkin" beers I had for the year. Both were big and I was saving them for Thanksgiving in lieu of pumpkin pie.

Color: Light to medium brownish orange, shall we say copper?, decent amount of head that eventually settles to a decent lacing pattern.

Smell: Sweet, pumpkin pie aroma. Lots of the pumpkin pie spices in this one.

Taste: This one tastes very close to a pumpkin pie, with booze. Although the alcohol is fairly well hidden on this one. There are more pumpkin spices, cinnamon, clove, allspice, and nutmeg in this one than in Pumking, to the best of my memory. Anyway, this one did have a pretty big bouquet of spices going on. Pumpkin was somewhat detected. This one was a bit on the spice side of the style but not overly so. I enjoyed this one. If I buy a pumpkin beer next year this one will be one of them.

Overall: Worth seeking out, especially if you like the style. I saw that they had a barrel aged one. That would be interesting to try!

Shipyard Smashed Pumpkin Ale pours orange with hints of amber and red. The smell leads a little cinnamony, but picks up nutmeg and allspice. The smell hints slightly earthy, picking up a whiff vanilla extract and squash scent. The body is heavy, and starts off a little sweet. but quickly turns toward a heavily spiced squash and pumpkin flavor. The spices remain strong, pulling strongly toward allspice and clove with a touch of cinnamon. Somehow, on the ending it is slightly mouth drying, and channels a huge amount of cinnamon, complimented by pumpkin spice and pumpkin.
