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.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours orange with a very slight haze. Head is an off-white pithy head which fades into a thin layer. Swirls with no lace.
Apple cider and apple pie. Cinnamon sticks and allspice. Thick and spicy and cloying.
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.
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.

The aroma is very pleasant with a fusion of the sour yeast, apple crispness, cinnamon spice, and nutmeg body, which almost smells like a cider, and the appearance combines a hazy orangeish golden color with a large yet fleeting white head. The taste is quite sweet, slightly sour, and a touch umami, which is a very surprising and enjoyable mixture; furthermore, the palate accentuates the taste with its medium body, sticky texture, lively carbonation, and a long yet slightly sour finish, resulting in a hearty and sweet yet light beer.

Taste more like cinnamon than apple. Smells good, but doesn’t look appealing. It looks like piss to me.

355ml bottle. Not much to look at, deep yellow, clear, no head. Fairly neutral aroma, little spice and apple. Taste is actually pretty good. The apple is natural tasting, not too sweet or sour, and the cinnamon is not overpowering. Crisp, refreshing body. Overall, better than expected. Couldn't drink many in one sitting, but it went nice with pork chops.

I feared an apple-flavored malt beverage, but I was surprised at how much I liked this beer. Light body but not watery. Apple flavor was, appropriately, predominant, with a baked-red delicious apple character that was complimented by light brown sugar and cinnamon notes. Some faint malt notes toward the end state a claim that the beverage is a beer. Interesting, but the sort of beer that you are happy to split and then move on to something else. I like this as an alternative to the pumpkin beers as a fall seasonal.

Surprisingly disappointing, but I should know better by now. Malty, wheat, mild apple-spice, cinnamon. But it’s mostly corn-flavored, light malt, watery and lacking in flavor. Shipyard wins again.
