2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a clear pale gold with a thin, quickly fading bright white head. Aroma is apple, earthy cinnamon, a touch of sweet toasty malt and caramel. Flavor is apple, pumpkin pie spice, seems like alot of ginger, toasty malt, caramel and a light cardboard note. Palate is light bodied, with an explosively strong and sharp carbonation and off dry feel. Decent, but it really didn’t do much for me. The carbonation could definitely stand to be toned down alot though.

This taste exactly like apple pie with a lot of cinnamon. Thats the only way I can explain it. I am surprised they didn’t come out with this around October, November, December. Overall its pretty good. Its a desert beer. Its not what I expected. If someone does not like the taste of beer they will want to drink this.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle split with Khan poured into a shaker. Pours a clear light gold with about a finger of white head. Aroma of cinnamon and nutmeg with minimal apple scent. Taste is about the same, but the apple is barely discernible because the cinnamon and nutmeg so overpower everything. Medium bodied with a somewhat sticky texture. Lively carbonation and a decently long finish. Overall, I’m kinda disappointed. It’s almost like Shipyard took 50 gallons of Pumpkinhead and threw a few apples in there. Pass...

What a complete joke from Shipyard. If you had a blind taste test with this brew and Pumpkinhead, you really couldn’t tell the difference. The cinnamon and nutmeg overpower any other aspect of this brew. It’s not really anything i would drink again.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
this ale poured a yellow gold with a little orange and made a initial one finger white head that receded to a partial cover and ring, effervescence was medium with a center stream and a few bubbled streams elsewhere in the glass, this beer left some spots and small fingers of lacing on the sides of he glass,
the aromas were apple, with spices of nutmeg, cinnamon and very faint ginger, there was some faint malt in the background,
the flavors were apple fruit with faint spices, and a little malt,
the mouth feel was light on the palate,
this beer smells and tastes like a apple spice cake, and was easy to drink.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle dated Oct 12. The pour is golden yellow with a quick fizzy head that fades. The aroma is of apple pie and cinnamon more than anything else but clean and crisp. The body is quite creamy and thin to medium. The taste is also much like drinking an apple pie with a slight tart after effect.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a clear gold with small white head. Aroma is apple and cinnamon. Fairly light bodied, crisp and refereshing. Spicey cinnamon and apple flavors. Kind of tastes like apple pie. Not bad stuff but it could use some more body, and definitely more hops.
