Cool bottle - the boar with tusks looks awesome. Bur that’s definitely the best part of this beer. Metallic skunky flavor and smells awful.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: ½” off white head that recedes quickly, leaving some lacing. Color is copper with moderate carbonation bubbles.
Aroma: floral and spicy hop nose. Smell of biscuits or bread dough
Mouthfeel: medium bodied, somewhat sticky and chewy with a semi-dry finish.
Flavor: combination of breadiness, a little toffee sweetness, and earthy hop bitterness. Nicely balanced. Bread in a glass for sure.
Overall: a classic example of an English Session Pale Ale. Well done Shipyard!

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
not sure what to expect, got a bottle from a friend for a buck.. . pours a deep marmalade amber .. great foam, tons and tons of lacing .. . lots fuggles and old fuggles, caramel too with an underlying shipyard dead yeast feel .. . decent enough for shipyard, would love a super fresh sample direct from the brewery because i suspect this is either old or perfect condition- who knows .. . .
stop using drain cleaning products, what are you, a pirate?
