Boat Beer is designed to be complex enough to merit drinking a few without being crippled by alcohol. Kolsch yeast and German malts are combined to be crisp and refreshing, while a generous amount of American hops have been added to keep it remarkable. Expect it to dance out of the glass with a whack of grapefruit and open into a crisp, stony tangle of white and yellow fruit with pine and moss notes. An IPA for everyday drinking, drink boat beer when you are thirsty from softball, fishing, or explaining why your team is best.

Aroma is a pleasant grapefruit aroma. Malt is absent on the nose. Appearance is a cloudy, pale straw color. Head dissipated quickly. Hop flavor is lower than expected based on the aroma and has a grassy taste. A harsh bitterness lingers on the palate. Malt flavor is absent. Has a super light body with a lingering astringency in the mouthfeel. Overall it tastes like a hopped water with a lingering harsh bitterness. Would not buy again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a very hazy and bright golden banana yellow color with a half finger white head that immediately settles into a thin ring. Minimal spotty lacing left behind. Looks more like a Berliner than a pale ale and the lack of retention/lacing hurts the appearance. Subtle floral hop aroma with faint zesty spice and a pale malt backbone. A touch or citrus along with grass and pine needle followed by biscuit, bread and some light fruit. Medium body wih tight carbonation and a crisp, spicy hop bite that lingers over the pale malts into a dry finish. Bitter and spicy with grassy hops and pine needle along with pepper and corianders. This is countered by a pale malt backbone with hints of bread yeast, biscuit and light fruit. Kind of tame and flavors seem a bit off to me. Feels more like a Belgian golden/pale ale with zesty spice and bland hop character. A lot of people who’s palates I trust really like this beer so I’d like to give it another try at some point but my first impression isn’t a very good one.

16 oz can poured, shard by Maxxdaddy. Huge thanks for helping my state tick quest with this one. Rating from notes. Pours a cloudy pale yellow color with a thin sandy head. Hop forward, citrus grapefruit aroma. Cool flavor, with soft straw, lemon peel bitter, and a light mint finish. Nice hop profile throughout. Solid session. Shame I don’t have more.

on tap at Roger Wilco in Pennsauken NJ - nice dark amber color. Aroma and flavor very hoppy. Surprisingly low alcohol for the flavor/style.

At the Draught House with Matt and Jer celebrating my 39tb birthday...Appearance: slightly hazy, orange brown amber body that shows little effervescence...head is an off-white halo, mostly due to its draft status...Aroma: sharp, noticeable hops are balanced by doughy malts; light to little fruitiness; even less pinecone or resin--just a straightforward pale ale in its scent... Palate: thin, malt-forward mouthfeel; the buzz created by hops is short... medium-bodied overall... achieves the sessionable status... Taste: a prodigious experience, with the balanced hops offer citrus--grapefruit, lemon, some bitter elements--along with enough malt to keep the beer enjoyable... Overall: a solid accompanyment to chipotle BBQ wings, old bay seasoned fries and nachos... another strong Carton offering...

drank from the can..cheers for sharing this one..really enjoy the 16 oz can..everything about this is solid..albeit from the can..next time will hopefully get a few more and enjoy from a proper glass, but so it goes..light bodied, sessionable..but far from plain jane..flavorful hops..decent bitterness..quite a lot of flavor profile for the low abv..very solid all around..cheers carton..would be nice if I could have easier access to this and enjoy in the warmer weather...

Poured hazy golden with a rich white head. Aroma of grapefruit, lemons, and pine needles. Pretty well balanced and certainly easy to put down a few. Nice session ale.
