Pumpkinhead is a Pumpkin Ale brewed by Shipyard Brewing Co., and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in a tulip pint glass from a bottle.
The ale pours a crystal-clear copper and is topped by an inch-thick cap of dense white foam that shows modest retention. The reduction doesn’t leave behind any lace or residue. A thin collar of bubbles rounds the glass.
The aroma strongly wafts pumpkin and nutmeg.
The palate blends pumpkin with bready malt. Floral hops punch the finish with a lingering bitterness.
Its feel is relatively smooth with a body just under medium and moderate carbonation.
The presentation for the Pumpkinhead is satisfactory. Aroma is pleasant. Nice pumpkin flavor but the feel seems a bit thin for the palate.
