Pours a clear copper with a typical head. Aroma of wet bread and pine. Taste is sweet malts and some bitterness like an English ESB. Nicely crafted, but not my favorite style.

Pour is a clear copper with a average white head. Aroma is a toffee/caramel malt combo. Flavor is a decent earthy malt with lots of caramel notes and leaves a nice toasted malt on the tongue. There was an odd fruit after the swallow but it did not hurt the beer any, it was just odd and out of no where. A decent to solid ESB.

UPDATED: JUL 17, 2014 Pours a clear amber with great thick head. Aroma is sweet caramel roasted malt with a citrucy Hop note. Taste follows the aroma perfect. Super smooth and very delicious! The balance between malt and hops is spot on.

HeistAlmighty (1156) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - JUN 16, 2014
355ml bottle. Pretty standard ESB, bready malt, some earthy bitterness. I like ESBs better than standard bitters so I enjoyed this fine.

Malty almost barnyard aroma, or just cheap malt aroma. Nothing special in the aroma or flavor. Drinkable but seems to be in that shipyard category of beers that are borderline drinkable. Would drink if given but would not buy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Clear amber pour with a dark ruby highlights and a massive head. Lacing and retention are exceptional. The nose is primarily biscuit with hints of sweetness and spice. Light bodied and well carbonated. The flavor profile is well balanced and complex. It begins with a nice biscuit that flows into the toffee and caramel notes. With a touch of sweetness, it transitions into the bitterness, which is an excellent example of an ESB. The finish is crisp and effervesces with a burst of caramel and well flavored bitterness.

May 20, 2014. 12 ounce bottle from Shipyard sampler pack. Surprisingly decent bitter with lovely coloring and a fruity essence.

Bulk_Carrier (2871) - Final Resting Place, Vermont, USA - MAR 28, 2014
Reviewed from notes. The appearance was a bright golden amber body, one finger white foamy head that dissipates within seconds. The smell had bready malts with some notes of fruit, yeast, and some caramel. The taste had a bready yet toasty maltiness with some roasty faint caramel. On the palate, it sat about a medium, sessionable, very dry aftertaste and finish. Overall, this was a decent beer, however I’m unsure if I’d have it again.

ContemplateBeer (1782) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAR 13, 2014
Aroma: Somewhat sweet caramel malts with a touch of cider and lemon; maybe a little nutty. Appearance: Slightly hazy, well carbonated, light copper body with an off white skin of head. Flavor: Caramel and moderately spicy hop up front with some cidery esters; caramel eases up toward the finish leaving a spicy, slightly lemony impression with a touch of nuts. Palate: Medium body, sticky texture, lively carbonation, lightly bitter finish. Overall: Fine overall, but feels too American on the palate.
