COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Original Pub Style is a light copper-colored medium-bodied with a nice dry bite at the finish. A subtle combination of Cascade and Willamette hops give this ale a fine floral aroma and a slightly fruity aftertaste. The taste captures the freshness of a hand-crafted brew pub ale that goes right from the conditioning tank to your glass!

Note: Bottled version is contract-brewed by Shipyard.

Ungstrup (29315) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 24, 2005
[Cask at GBBF 2004] An amber beer with no head. The aroma is sweet grassy combined with notes of oranges. The flavor is sweet with notes of peach and alcohol running over the tongue leading to a dry hoppy end. A boring beer.

Draught at the brewpub. Mild fruity aroma. Hazy light amber colour. The flavour is slightly grainy with a mild, refreshing grassy hop note.

Oakes (12552) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 6, 2003
Bright, light amber colour. Toasty, fruity hops and Ringwood esters. Crisp, toasty body. Blackberry esters noted. The finish is quick, slightly fruity and somewhat refreshing. One of those deja vu beers.

jcwattsrugger (11083) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - OCT 10, 2007
12oz bottle-pours a big foamy off white head and gold color. Aroma is mild grain/medium malt, flat (English) hops, maybe some spice, cardboard, (coffee?). Taste is medium malt-some sweet caramel, earthy hops, fruit, some herbal/musty, yeast? Dryness in the finish. Rather middle of the road EPA and lack luster finish. Mild carbonation.

bhensonb (11069) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 16, 2012
Bottle from Liz. Pours light golden amber with a slight white head. Light citrus and caramel aromas. Med body. Thickish feel, so maybe towards full. There’s some caramel, and some citrus, but not all that much, and it’s really only bitter enough to avoid being sweet. It doesn’t have that roasty APA malt, and it’s not bitter in my book. Kind of like some of those other beers from Shipyard - KBC and Seadog. Like they didn’t want to use a lot of ingredients to make a statement.

Leighton (10975) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2013
Keg at the Portland branch. Pours clear gold with a fine, creamy white head. Grainy malt nose, some leaves, orange rind. Light to ,Edith sweet flavor, mild bitter pine needles, some leaves, a bit of ripening orange. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Sweet finish with very faint citrus, leaves, pine. Again, a very basic beer.

Tmoney99 (10660) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 7, 2008
Bottle from World of Beer, Clearwater, FL. Poured clear amber color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate grainy hoppy and small malt aroma. Medium body with flat carbonation. Medium bitter flavor with a medium bitter finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met with a drinkable beer.

Lubiere (9998) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 26, 2007
A golden ale with a thick white head, quickly dissipating. Aroma is strong carmel and butterscotch, with emphasis on butter....In mouth, a sweetish malt comes, with notes of berries, and strong butter in finale. Pleasing at first, cloying at second, dissapointing in final. Bottle from Party Source, Syracuse.
