Shipyard Smashed Pumpkin has a thick, frothy, orange-tinted cream-colored head, a hazy, bubbly, orange appearance, and even some decent lacing left on the glass. The aroma is of sharp, spicy, pumpkin pulp aroma, reminiscent of Pumpkin Head, with the spiced candle aspect. Taste is of those elements, with a bit of an odd pepper note (white pepper?). Mouthfeel is medium to heavy, and Smashed Pumpkin finishes between wet and dry. Not too boozy in the flavor, but one will feel it (my sample is a 12-oz. bottle).

12 oz. bottle poured into a tulip.

Appearance: Pours a hazy copper with a short white head.

Aroma: Spicy and toasty with a solid malt background.

Taste: Pretty complex, inviting mix of flavors. Pumpkin and spices are there along with toast and sweet malt. Booze is noticeable, too, but not overpowering.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with some booze burn.

Overall: Nice, complex, slightly boozy pumpkin beer. A good beer to try if you think pumpkin beers are all cloying and crappy, but this isn't.
