look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Serving type: Samuel Adams perfect pint glass

Smell: Lots of apple and spice notes with a slight breadyness almost like a pie crust

Mouthfeel: Thin but not too thin very high carbonation making it really refreshing

Taste: There’s no bitterness in this beer, on the forefront of the pallet is the apple and spice notes followed by a almost apple pie crust taste( created by the wormwood yeast that ship yard uses)

Overall: a very refreshing session-able beer. it would pare great with bratwurst defiantly one of my favorite shipyard beers

It has the consistency of club soda and the stuff is fizzy. It has the taste of club soda with a few crumbs of apple pie. Overall, it comes across with a weaker apple but stronger cinnamon taste. It is hard to fathom why this ale was produced. Personally, I would rather have a nice slice of home made apple pie for dessert and wash it down with a European style pilsner.
