COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The classic English style of Chamberlain Pale Ale is enhanced by its golden copper hue and creamy white head. It is dry and crisp with an aromatic hoppy finish. Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain: Civil war hero. Medal of honor winner. Maine governor. President of Bowdoin College. The Chamberlain Pale Ale was created by the Shipyard Brewing Company to commemorate the extraodinary life of "the man from Maine."

Had this on draft at St. John’s - the tap room. Orange clear pour. Frothy head. Orange and peach tastes on the blackend. Not my favorite but a decent pale ale

solidfunk (3997) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - FEB 25, 2013
Pours orange. Aroma has some hops and malt. Average carbonation. Aftertaste has some bitterness, too much cloying sourness. On tap at St Johns tap room in Virgin Islands.

radarsock (907) - Vermont, USA - FEB 10, 2013
It’s pour can be remarked as having a certain a copper orange-dusty glow to it with which sustained an off-white head. Aromas of LME, hops, and mint. Not much else. Bread yeast, but it;s quite brief. Tastes of tin, caramel, mint, and vegetal hops. Fine, by my standpoint.

nakedwhendrunk (2089) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - JAN 20, 2013
It poured a light copper slightly cloudy color with a medium head that quickly dissipated leaving about an average lace around the glass. The smell had some floral scents with hints of caramel and hops. The taste was slightly malty and sweet with brown sugar and caramel, and had a slightly bitter hoppy finish. It had a light body with a high carbonation. A good ol’ APA that was pretty drinkable. Overall, decent for the style and good for me.

kramer (4942) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 4, 2012
Bottle. Pours a watery looking light copper body with a thin and fizzy off-white head that faded to a wispy film. The nose is just horrible to me. That awful buttery ringwood yeast just jumps out and punches you in the face. It’s hard to even smell any hops in this. The flavor is just as bad, it has ringwood written all over it from front to back. Some weak soggy and wet grain on the finish that pretty well lacks any bitterness at all. Slightly sticky and clingy with soft fizzy carbonation. Somewhat watery in texture. Just as awful as I remembered it was.

33 cl bottle @ Esplanadi, Tampere.
Pours lightly hazy golden color with a small head. Aroma of grassy hops, malts, some fruits and nuts. Flavour of malts, nuts, hay, some dry fruits and mild cardboard. Dry malty palate with a bitter and dry finish.

35,5 cl bottle @ Olutravintola Esplanadi, BB 09/2012
Aroma feels very english with lots of toffee hops and some caramel. Flavour has English toffee, grassy hops and caramel. Woody and nutty finish. Decent, and faithful to the style.

mjs (4584) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 8, 2012
(Bottle, 0.355 l - BBE Sep 2012, at Pikkulintu, 20120908) The beer poured amber and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had sweetness, cardboard and malts. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were sweetness, grass, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was sweet and bitter. The age had done its damage but I doubt this beer would be much better if it were fresher.

Voodoo (311) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 17, 2012
Pours a brownish gold with a decent head and good lacing. Taste is a bit bland, a touch metallic and a bit of bittering. The good General would have probably wanted a bit more flavor, more bittering and a touch more hops.....maybe Little Round Hops.
