This one of my favorite fall pumpkin offerings. It has a nice balance of pumpkin flavor, sweetness, and a slight kick. It tastes "pumpkin-y" without being overwhelming. I can easily drink 2 or 3 before having to switch to something lighter. This is the beer I most look forward to around late August, and the one I drink most frequently throughout the season.

Still can't fathom how this seems to be Shipyards most popular beer while being their worst? Pugsley's is a much better version but when it comes to pumpkins, however if im looking for Pumpkin I steer clear of Shipyard. Still enjoy plenty of other beers in their lineup including Export and Chamberlain. Great brewery in Portland, worth a visit every time.
