2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear orange to golden color, medium sized white head at the beginning, disappeared fast. Lots of apple and pumpkin in the aroma. Taste is sweet, apple and cinnamon. Watery, soft carbonated. A bit weird. //Pivoteka

Maybe this benefitted from lowered expectations, but this was actually not bad. Definate cinnamon and apple, but what I liked best about it was what it did NOT have. No butter flavors!

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled 355ml. -from Pivoteka Zagreb, shared with Marko. Darker golden coloured, small off-white head, Apfelstrudel in the nose with cinnamon of course. The beer itself is almost the same, Apfelstrudel with lots of cinnamon and pretty watery as well. Again another one that goes into "not my type of beer" category but also much better than O’fallon Which I’ve tried few minutes before.

2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
0.355l bottle, Pivoteka, shared with ogivlado. Darker golden-amber body. Small white head. I actually dig the aroma, grandma’s Apfelstrudel, apples and cinnamon are evident. Watery taste with dry cinnamon up front, apples are mostly gone from there. Completely subdued. Some semblance of Apfelstrudel still remains, but man it’s watery, especially in the finish. No, this is not a quality beer, especially since it hints at so much more than it delivers.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz. bottle. BBD Aug. 15. Pours a medium, well retained white head, over an effervescent gold (SRM 5) body......nose is moderately heavy cinnamon, light apple, hints of wheat, no esters, no hops, balance to the cinnamon......taste is slightly sweet, with light apple, dominant cinnamon, finishing almost dry, no hops, balance to the cinnamon......mouth feel, light body, no alcohol, high carbonation. The underlying wheat beer is much too hidden by the simple spice. More wheat and apple presence would make this particular bottle better. Its strongest point is its appearance. BJCP 6/3/12/4/5

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a vibrant golden color with a small white head that faded quickly and left no lacing. The aroma was sweet cinnamon sugar and strong apple. The flavor was sweet cinnamon sugar and apple - very much like apple pie. Long finish. Moderately full bodied. Yummy!

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
From tap. Pours cloudy orange with a small white head. Aroma is apples and cinnamon. Citrusy, zesty fruity apples. Light cinnamon dryness into the finish. Juicy apples.

2.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- Fantastic aroma of apples, can’t wait to taste
Appearance- Looks like a mix between apple juice and a lager. Has a small white head.
Taste- Completely disappointing. I actually feel cheated when I compare the aroma to the taste. You can taste cinnamon and maybe a hint of apple, but the beer flavor doesn’t appeal to me.
Palate- This is a light bodied beer with moderate carbonation. The finish is dry and crisp.
Overall - This does not even compare to Shipyard’s Pumpkin brew. I would not try this again nor recommend it to anyone unless they want to experiment with flavors

Ugh, over sweet and spicy, like McDonalds apple pie filling. It even looks bad in a glass. No good.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured a clear dark golden color without much of a head, maybe some wisps on it. Aroma was, a bit like an apple pie - mostly some cinnamon. Apples are there, a bit tart. Flavor was sweet apple pie, cinnamon.
