Summer is nearly over and fall beers have been pouring into the store by the boat loads. I really wish I wasn’t on my way back to Indiana, the land where anything other than Budweiser is shunned, because I really want to try out the fall styles like I did with the summer beers. But I did at least get to have a taste of what fall beers taste like and I was pretty pleases.
I decided to try Shipyard’s Pumpkinhead merely for the name and fun little label, but now I have a new reason to buy it again. Just as the name would suggest it has a spicy pumpkin flavor that just screams the fall season. I personally LOVE pumpkin so it was a given that I would fall in love with this beer. It wasn’t too sweet and had a great kick in your face with the fall spices. It was smooth, very drinkable, and had a medium body. Perfect little beverage to enjoy after raking up the infestation of leave amongst the yard. Pick it up and enjoy it!
