Smashed Pumpkin - Pumpkin Ale - Shipyard Brewing - ABV 9%

Pours a light amber, fairly clear with a typical pumpkin head which is usually very small and doesn't stick around too long, the aroma is of cinnamon, apple and light spice. As for the taste the spices are pretty subdued but still present with cinnamon being the most prominent (but isn't it always) , once again there's that apple creeping in which is nice and the sweetness is right on but maybe  a bit on the light side. After tasting many different pumpkin ales it's nice to taste something a little different and not just different for the sake of being different, these flavors work well together and this bad boy rings in at 9 % ABV so keep that in mind.

Mr. Beer Jangle

Welcome! Mr. Beerjangle is a site that is rooted in Craft Beer and everything surrounding it. We not only strive to entertain you, but also to provide information and fun reading to anyone interested in the craft beer world. However this is not just another beer site because not only will we review craft beers but we will also discuss the culture that surrounds it. Everyone involved with this site is not only a big fan of craft beer but we are also fans of music, cinema, art and pretty much anything that kicks ass. Today craft beer drinkers are more of a community. We appreciate the time, energy and detail that brewers put into every brew and craft beer appreciation isn't just a guy thing, many women are choosing a craft beer over a glass of wine and this trend seems to be growing. We will talk about where to find a great brewery or an interesting place where you can get a craft beer and listen to a live band. In other words we don't want to put ourselves into a box, this site will always be evolving and anyone who visits our site will have a chance to voice their opinion and throw in their two cents (as long as your point of view does not conflict with us "experts").....just kidding, seriously feel free voice your opinion. We will also be giving you the 411 on all types of beer related events such as festivals etc...so pour yourself a cold one (or a room temperature one) and join the party.
