3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle. Amber beer, thin white head. Light caramel wiht a heavy dose of cherry fruitiness in the nose. Sweet UK-types of molts. Flavour is good, sweet combination of malts and cherry esters. A bit of lingering herbal bitterness. Decent enough, if a bit simple. Somewhat too sweet.

This golden ale poured with a bubbly off-white head that dissipated right away. The aroma is sour caramel. The flavor starts off malty sweet, but quickly turns to a bitter finish - a bit thin, but refreshing.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Orange/brown amber with a big whitish head. Fruit malt aroma. Caramel malt flavoe with some hop fruitiness. Low bitterness. It’s a pretty good rendition of a Brittish style strong bitter without going to thick.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours hazy amber with a white head. Bittersweet nose with some fruit and caramel... maybe even honey. Medium body. Flavor is very well balanced with caramel and some nutty malt, but a metallic finish really throws it off. Not awful but really unimpressive.

The twist off cap bomber pours out deep copper with some haze and nice tan head. The aroma seems like spicy hops mixing with brown sugar, crystal malts and spiced red apple wedges. Hey, lots more flavor than I was expecting and virtually none of the classic Shipyard diacetyl. I get a bowl full of spiced ripe red apple wedges along with spice and earthy hops.

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?

Methinks I got a bottle of this while visiting Chicago because I had never tried it but didn’t bother to take down good notes except the numbers.

competent english style ale. some pleasant hardness and light saltiness give a little class to what is otherwise a straightforward, lightly nutty, slightly floral ale
