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.

Sparkling cider appearance, light gold with thin white head. Arom is like applejacks cereal with apple, cinnamon and malt. Taste is the same but lighter, like a watered down cider.

This is a great beer. Shipyard has always made quality beers and I look forward to Shipyards pumpkin head every fall. It was a great surprise when I saw this on the shelfs at my local store. Great refreshing beer with a crisp apple taste.

UPDATED: MAR 9, 2012 12 oz. Delicious nose of spicy apple pie: cinnamon, apple, nutmeg, brown sugar and pie crust. Taste is similar but way too much "red-hots" cinnamon and sweet apple from the get-go. Light medium body is lightly carbonated and way too sweet.

A nice and refreshing fruit beer. Aroma was a little weak. Cinnamon and hints of apple, but they were very distant. Pour was a nice bubbly light gold with a thin white film for a head. Taste was crisp and delicious. Sweet malt start off before the heavy apple and cinnamon take over. Tastes like an apple pie. The nice carbonation brings out the sweetness in the aftertaste. It never gets too sweet or too fruity. It stays just right. Would love this in the summer! Too bad the aroma wasn’t bigger or this would be closer to 4

Bottle from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours light amber. Slight whitish head. Cinnamon is the primary aroma - but the effect is something like a cold baked apple. Med minus body. Flavor is cinnamon/sweet with some apple skin, and there is a bit of skin astringency. Calling it cinnamon beer would be more on point.

Wonderful apple, honey, and cinnamon aroma, even a little bready. Clear amber, thin head. Drier and breadier flavor. Apple and nutmeg flavor, quite artificial. A kiss of blueberry in the finish. I rather enjoyed the pumpkin beers but there is something not quite right in this beer and I call shenanigans. I do hope that artificial flavorings were not employed here.
