Shipyard Pumpkinhead Ale
Shipyard Brewing Co.
Pours a pale copper almost straw color. Good carbonation but not much of a white head was produced.
Some spice and some light malts on the nose but there is also an odd almost sour aroma. It’s kind of sweet and almost yeasty.
I’ll let it set for a while and see what happens when it warms up a little.
Well as it warms up a little it is a little smoother but it’s not really any better. There is still an odd almost sour taste on the finish. It’s not offensive but it doesn’t seem right either.
OK this is the best I can do, it’s an artificially spicy sour blah beer. Like I said it’s not offensive but it doesn’t taste good either. Mediocre at best for the Shipyard Pumpkinhead Ale. I’m not sure what that would be in a letter, a D maybe.
