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.”

Strong cinnamon taste and flavor. Smooth. Would be great as a shooter with ice cream after a turkey. Great execution, just not something I’d love to drink a ton of.

Apple nutmeg beer, go figure. Surprised I liked it as much as I did. The smell and taste are strong and similarly, of apples, cinnamon, nutmeg, hint of brown sugar. Good fall/winter beer. Happy to have 1 or 2 of these in a session any more would be flavor overload.

Bottle purchased at Vicker’s Liquors. Clear gold pour with a thick white head. Aroma of sweet malt, apple and light spice. Cinnamon and apple flavor with some maltiness before a semi-dry, thin finish.

Best part of this one is when you first get drink it you get the first rush of apple and cinnammon then NOTHING may as well be flavored water not bitter like cider warmer it gets worse it gets Shipyard I should have known better perhaps apple is a hard flavor to get in a beer Redds sucked have to try the shock top one.

The aroma is spicy and sweet with sour apple candy. The appearance is golden with a thin head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is watery. Overall sessionable enough.

12 oz bottle, pours a clear golden color with a thin fizzy head that diminished and leaves hardely any lacing. Smells of apple, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Tastes of all the same things that are in the smell. Mouthfeel is watery but chewy with decent carbonation. This beer tastes like Apple Jacks in beer form but a little more sour. Worth having on occasion during the summer but definitely glad I didn’t buy a six pack.

Appearance: Pours orange with a very slight haze. Head is an off-white pithy head which fades into a thin layer. Swirls with no lace.
Nose: Apple cider and apple pie. Cinnamon sticks and allspice. Thick and spicy and cloying.
Palate: Apple pie and apple cinnamon crisps and apple pie. Flesh in the middle, skins along the edges. Medium-light weight. Dry and a bit weak after each swallow – definitely doesn’t leave a lasting impression. Strongest up front. Borderline cloying.
Final Thoughts: Definitely not that great. I finished my glass but just barely. Shipyard has always been hit or miss with me and their Applehead is definitely a miss. Meh.

Pours a clear gold with no head. Strong apple aromas, not much else. First sip is whoa nelly! Spices! Like nutmeg and all those holiday garbage spices. Pure apple pie taste. Garbage.
