COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Shipyard Applehead is a crisp, refreshing wheat ale with a delightful apple aroma and subtle cinnamon flavor. This beer is available in 6-packs, 12-packs and on draft. “We asked Pumpkinhead fans what other flavors would they like to see and their answer was apple,” said director of sales and marketing, Bruce Forsley. “We listened to what our fans asked for and created Shipyard Applehead. Master brewer Alan Pugsley has combined the subtle sweetness of cinnamon and apple with a clean, refreshing wheat ale to create a whole new beer experience.”

Bottle. Pours amber with a medium off-white head. Sweet aroma with cinnamon and a hint of apple. Flavor of light malts, lots of cinnamon and some other spices. Only a hint of apple flavor, mostly in the finish. Too much spice in this one.

2/4/12. On tap. Clearish golden pour with a small off-white head. Mild apple smell with tons of spice - dominating like potpourri. Sweet apple flavor that is again spice dominated, heavy on the cinnamon. Dry and almost burning cinnamon... huge meh.

Apple and cinnamon aroma right off the bat. Clear solid amber color with a one finger head than goes down fast. The apple and cinnamon are not surprisingly in the flavor too though not overwhelmingly. Faint sourness in the middle which then trails off to a clean finish. High carbonation gives it a refreshing mouth feel. Worth a try.

Boliv (1150) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 4, 2012
Bottle, best by June 2012. Pours effervescent, light orange, with a small lively off-white head. Aromas of cinnamon, nutmeg and brown sugar, buttered crust, and apple pie/peach cobbler. The flavor is sweet apple and tart fruit, sugar, and buttery dough and spices. Alright. [963]

hopscotch (9963) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 3, 2012
Draft... Clear golden ale with a mid-sized, fluffy, white head. Smells like a melange of apple, cinnamon and vanilla. Light-bodied with a watery mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. The flavor is completely nondescript with the exception of a touch of cinnamon. It’s technically flawless, though. Finishes crisp and clean. It’s refreshing in a seltzer water kind of way, so I can’t blast it. Not bad, really, just boring.

Pours a pale gold color, aroma is sweet and floral with a frothy head. Before I take a sip I am not expecting much, here we go.......not as bad as I thought, taste is cinnamon with nutmeg with a slight bouquet of apples Finish is dry and crisp , overall a light sweet beer or is it apple cider ? Quaff Score 4 / 10 Stick with my IPAs and stouts, but better than most fruit beers.

zgaier (1550) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - FEB 2, 2012
Pours gold with a white head and aroma of fruits and spices. Flavor is cinnamon, nutmeg, and spices along with apple notes with a sweet, malty finish. Drinkable and not bad for a fruit beer.

Pours clear deep gold into a shaker. Head crackles and disappears. Apple pie aromas. Soft with sweet apple and cinnamon upfront turning to yeasty wheat in the medium length finish.

Very strong apple and cinamin flavor, but it wasn’t a cider, it was a beer. This was pretty well crafted.

UPDATED: MAR 20, 2012 Tasted at the 2012 St. Louis Centennial Beer Festival from bottle into sampler glass. Poured a predictable amber color with weak head but very aromatic. Smelled of apples and cinnamon, wheat bread, some fruity yeast esters and clove phenols. Nice fruity taste, more like a fruity wheat beer than a straight-up cider, welcome hops bitterness to off-set the sweetness. Unique and interesting.
