Pours a slight orange with a white head that quickly dissipates leaving no lacing. Carbonation is average with fizz throughout the drink. Aroma is slight apple with cinnamon dominant. Palate is the same. Body is thin on the medium side. It is a good beer. Got it for $8.99/12 pack or $15.99/case at Kappy’s.

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.

Very strong apple and cinamin flavor, but it wasn’t a cider, it was a beer. This was pretty well crafted.

Wow. This a very nice surprise! pours a very nice clear Amber with fair ring of white head. Looks like sparkling cider. Kinda has a similar mouthful as well. The flavors a solid applejuice and hints nutmeg sweetness. Reminds me of applejacks cereal. But the thing that sends this over the top is the aroma! Just wonderful bouquet of cinnamon and pumpkin pie spices. I could smell this for hours. Wildly underrated beer...

This is a great beer. Shipyard has always made quality beers and I look forward to Shipyards pumpkin head every fall. It was a great surprise when I saw this on the shelfs at my local store. Great refreshing beer with a crisp apple taste.

But oh what a weird beer! After the first shock of cinnamon, I begin more and more to like the beer. To finally truly enjoy it. You feel all the flavors of beer, cinnamon and apple, which is an achievement.
