Smashed Pumpkin

It is about that time of year again, it is time for PUMPKIN EVERYTHING. Get your pumpkin lattes and your pumpkin muffins, get ready for pumpkin pie, but most importantly go get a pumpkin beer.

Shipyard Brewing Co. put together their Smashed Pumpkin. This a hybrid of a pale ale, a wheat with some Munich malts. It is made from Willamette and hallertau hops. Its abv is 3.64.

This stuff is freaking pumpkin pie in a bottle. The beer itself tasted like a cinnamon kissed Oktoerfest that had sat inside a jack-o-lantern. It had a great light flavor with a nice spice to it. The malts were sweet and very forward. It had a nice strong hop flavor finishing it off. This helped round the beer out and give it a solid balance.

The mouth feel was nice and light. I wish someone would put one of these in my halloween bag.

I give it a 4.
