3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle:   Amber in color, fairly clear, moderately sized head, foamy, off-white, spotty lacing, minor carbonation.   Pale musty malt aroma, a little dank, some funkified hop notes.   Smells like its been hanging out
in a room full of hippies.   Slight biscuity notes on the tongue, minor sweetness, a touch of cereal.   Not bad, certainly better than its smell.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Tastes a little bigger than your standard
Bitter or ESB.   Comes across as a soft or pale English Strong Ale.   Cerealy finish, a little pale fruit skin.   Not bad, and certainly better than I expected.
