Sweet with a hop finish, It certainly does not remind me of a ESB but more of those mainstream ales. I would drink it again but still struggle with classification.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JUN 15, 2002
Best thing I’ve had yet from Shipyard; nice golden color with a fair though diminishing head (nice lacing) and a very fruity aroma (pears?) leads to a really wonderful full-flavored yeasty, white-wine-like, apple infused flavor. I don’t know if I’d call it a bitter; more like a really fine American amber ale or something. Could have a stronger nose and a bit more kick on the end, but this is a winner.

This appears to be an American-brewed version of a british beer. It’s sharp alright, and it’s got its fair share of hops, like many British brews do. Is it ’one of the best brewers in North America’, well, not IMHO, but it’s decent and drinkable. Cool wild boar picture on the label, which reminds me of Boar’s Head salami (same company? Probably not). Anyway, salami aside, this has a hint of bitterness which complements the malt. I recommend you check this ’thumper’ out.

Wow it’s been a while since I had this, but this brewery has inspired me to brew my own beer. Maybe one of the best brewers in North America.

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 3, 2002
UPDATED: DEC 2, 2004 On cask NERAX ’02: It tasted stale and had a sharp taste to it. Hardly any aroma, light bitterness. Not too much better on tap. Tap: A decent yet unremarkable beer. Lacked a real defining taste.

Nice and bitter with a fruity taste - finishing sweet - maybe a bit too sweet.

I.C.suds (189) - Da U.P. eh?, Michigan, USA - APR 7, 2002
Found this in the British Beer section of a beer store. Tasted not quite british. Too hoppy and not much after taste. Not bad for a U.S. lookalike

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
Merc (313) - Pullman, Washington, USA - APR 5, 2002
bottle. Quick dissipating head, but clear as a bell, nice copper blonde colour. Malty floral aroma with buttery carmel notes. Nice hoppy finish but slightly oily. A little overcarbonated for my taste.

Gregory (357) - Pullman, Washington, USA - APR 5, 2002
Excellently done. Very well balanced, complex brew. Crystal clear, rich malty aroma. Starts sweet, rich malt middle, and a very nice hop bite to finish it off. Very good.
