Hand drawn 20oz pint. Pours with soapy weak head. Vinegar aromas. Flat and oxidized. Not good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

GIJOE (601) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - FEB 17, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 19, 2013 Pale golden beer, good head that stays long, laces nicely and that’s pretty much where the good ends. Smells a little skunky, like cheap beer from a dive bar. Tastes pretty much like that, too. Definitely better than Budweiser, for whatever that’s worth.

Shipyard Old Thumper Extra Special Ale has a medium-to-thick, off-white head, a hazy, orange-golden appearance, which hazes even more, once the bottom of the bottle is swished and poured in. After that, one can see a descending grey cloud and little brown specks floating about. There is some lacing left on the glass. The aroma is of sweet, sugary, and toffee-like barley malt, and the flavor is of the same with a nice hop bitterness, some caramel, sugar, and alcohol. Mouthfeel is medium and soft, and Shiyard Old Thumper Extra Special Ale finishes wet, mild, and delicious. Overall, this is wonderful, and I strongly recommend it. RJT

radarsock (885) - Vermont, USA - JAN 21, 2013
650 mL bottle purchased from local grocery. To pint it pours a clear cidery autumn russet with which resembled a lambic. Thin, off-white head. Smells of vomitus, Bible paper, tin, caraway seeds, cotton, and vegetables. Tastes the same; tin and fibrous textile fabric are really intense. A squeak of sourness and unripe nectarine by swallow.

Hoppy, citrus, malty, picture of a boar on the label and it reads that its a beast of a beer. I think it's odd ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

fauxpunker (76) - Florence, Kentucky, USA - NOV 18, 2012
Bottle. Copper with persistent, thin, white head. Sweet aroma with sweet, spicy malt taste. Not much in the way of bitter. Interesting flavor. Can’t put my finger on the spices, but fun drinking. Not what I was expecting, but not put off either.
