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.
