THIS is what pumpkin beer season is all about! I was super impressed with Shipyard’s Watermelonhead over the summer, so I’m glad to see another quality seasonal beer from them. While many “pumpkin” beers are merely spiced, you can actually taste the pumpkin in Shipyard. It’s not quite as pumpkin pie-y as my Holy Grail Beer (Elysian’s Night Owl), but it’s close. A perfectly balanced, perfectly pumpkined beer.
