Beer Review #28: Shipyard Gingerbreadhead

01 Jun

Website description: This new winter beer is full-bodied with a smooth malt character; accented with ginger, cloves and cinnamon.

ABV: 4.6

My thoughts: A light, sweet aroma reminiscent of molasses. For such a darker beer, it’s remarkably light bodied. It’s got a pretty good gingerbread taste, almost like the cookies themselves. Carbonation is extremely low, which gives it a nice smoothness. It’s got a clean finish and has a hint of a wheaty cookie flavor. It’s decent, but there’s not much to it. A nice novelty, but nothing more.

Number of times I’ve had it: 1

Rating: 3/5

Location: Jackson Hall
East Islip, NY
