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.

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.

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.

A cider like light orange pour. Has an apple aroma. Taste is mostly apple, but has a nice cinnamon and oaky flavor that gives it some body.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Reviewed from notes.
The appearance had a slight golden yellow colored body with a small white head that lasts barely three seconds.
The smell had Granny Smith apples, cinnamon with a light wheat.
The taste took the previously mentioned flavors combine with some malts to make a decent combination.
On the palate, it sat about a light, sessionable, crisp, light harshness on the tongue, apple aftertaste and finish.
Overall, this is the apple version of Shipyard’s "Pumpkinhead." Even though it is a bit like an "apple pie," it is easy to drink.
