DuffMan (8318) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 19, 2007
Clear amber with an off-white bubbly head. Very nice aroma of bread, toffee, and pear. Sweet toffee flavour with a fruity kiss and a perfectly balanced bitter finish. Excellent!

marcus (8000) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 18, 2008
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.

"fairly standard entry into the esb catergory. sale at scolari’s for a $1 single. had with dinner. grainy malts and a touch of bittering hops, that’s about it.

bb (7754) - Alamo, California, USA - MAR 3, 2005
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.

motelpogo (7701) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - JUL 6, 2004
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

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.

Ughsmash (7426) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 6, 2013
Bottled. Poured clear, brighter orange with a creamy beige head. The aroma picked up bready and fruity notes with herbal and orange peel accents. The flavor found sweet honey and bready notes at the core, with orange peel and spiced fruity notes around.. finished tangy over sweet malt. Lighter-bodied with moderate carbonation on the palate.. smooth feel on the middle with good transitions.. solid stuff.

blipp (7347) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 31, 2008
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.

SudsMcDuff (7259) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - JUN 16, 2013
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?

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - NOV 25, 2005
Pours a clear deep bronze copper with a half-inch off-white head. Aroma has some earthy caramel and light butterscotch with a touch of English hops. Body starts with a bittersweet, dry, maltiness revealing some diacetyl before a lightly sticky, bitter finish. An ok bitter that would probably be better were it really brewed in the UK.
