12oz bottle -
Found out that Trader Joe’s carries 6-packs of this and a few other unusual Shipyard beers. This one works really, really well and quite a tasty spring/summer beer. An aroma that can best be described as smelling like McDonalds hot apple-pie snacks is the best I can come up with. It smells really nice. Flavor is a nice blend of apples, light cinnamon with a touch of tannic pucker-ness. A pretty straight-forward fruit beer, with a strong flavor of apples. No noticeable flaws while at proper temps. A really nice beer.

"got a single just to see. if this type of beer is what you’re in the mood for, it’s actually quite good. if you’re not in the mood, still an ok beer. better than pumpkinhead. the mix of apple aroma and flavor, and spices cover up any shortcomings in this too light wheat beer. looks and has the feel of typical micro/macro hybrid...but the aroma and flavor are nice enough to almost win me over. not a high scorer, but one i may get again if singles are available."

Bottle. Immediate smell of apple pie, that fades. Looks like any other generic beer. Cinny fer SHURRRRE. Wew, too much spice and and not enough sugar, heheeh. Aroma becomes a little metallic. Slight medicinal finish. Not impressed.

Pours a light yellow with a thin white head. Smelled like Apple cider. The taste was a light apple flavor with some cinnamon in the background. Overall it wasn’t too bad.

Apples. That’s it. That’s the rating. Apples. Tastes like apples. Smells like apples. Golden color, thin, disappearing white head. Medium in body. Good, if you like apples. Very sweet. Couldn’t really discern the cereal grains underneath. Just apples.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Drank from bottle. A light but medium bodied beer. Strong apple flavor and aroma. Not the best but enjoyable, makes a better late summer, early fall beer. Right before pumpkin beer season.
