Like most Ipswich brews this is just an old fashioned, no-frills type of beer. A little on the dry side. The hop profile is similar to a pilsner. Medium-bodied. Pretty good.

Poured from a Bomber into a pint glass. Aroma- Has a strong ale smell with a hop and yeast mix. Appearance- This is a pretty good looking amber colored ale, with an off-white head. Taste- Pretty average ale to me, the yeast flavor isn’t bad but it detracts from the overall flavor for me. Palate- This is a medium bodied brew with moderate carbonation. It has an oily feel and has a dry finish. Overall-Run of the mill ale to me, I love the packaging but that was the best part of the experience.

Padron4KM (619) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - FEB 7, 2015
22 oz bottle, bottled on 6/23/14
Hazy pale golden, thick two finger head, and sticky lace.
Very light aroma. Biscuty malts, grassy hops.
Flavor is mild as well. Sweet bready malts, light spicy, grassy hops. Finish is dry, but short lived.
Looks better than it tastes, not a bad beer, just not very flavorful.

Flagship? Really? Mediocre predominately malt aroma. Decent copper pour w/ a foamy white head & sporadic lacing. The taste is of light malt & maybe the slightest hint of hops. Pretty well balanced but overall quite plain & uninteresting.

hotstuff (4393) - Indiana, USA - SEP 13, 2014
Backlog rating on 8-17-2012 (Bottle) This beer has a medium sized off-white head that mostly diminishes, golden hazy body, fizzy, fast rising carbonation, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is caramel malt and grassy hops. The flavor is lightly bitter, caramel malt, semi-sweet, and grassy hops. The mouthfeel is smooth and this beer is light-medium bodied. This beer is quaffable with the malt upfront and the hops taking a backseat.

slowrunner77 (6580) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 4, 2014
"Fruity hops blend with ample biscuit and Carmel malts on the nose and flavor. Better than average for a style I’m not usually crazy about, but not worth going out of your way for."
