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."

ClarkVV (4223) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 30, 2005
22 oz 2005 bottle shared with Muzzlehatch on 5/22/2005. Smells of nutty/earthy English hops, some bitterness, light caramel. Blonde with some orange tinges, clear, filtered body with a fizzy white head receding to nothing, no lacing. Flavor is lightly malty (pale/base malts), bits of grain, some minor hops bitterness, no real hops flavor. Maybe some metal on the end. Tastes a lot like water, feels like water. Forced carbonation, heavily filtered, horribly bland, not much beer left in this. Maybe some light citrus. Got the old "this beer sucks" in the notes. Light body.

muzzlehatch (4420) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - MAY 27, 2005
22 oz bottle shared with the Master of Disaster, ClarkVV at his parents’ palatial chalet in Belfast Maine. Rich, clear amber with a smallish lasting head...pleasant enough citrusy-sharp nose muted by big dollops of caramel...bland, light sweet body, little malt depth, very watery body. One of many beers on this Maine trip that struggles to find words boring enough to fit the experience of drinking it...

UPDATED: MAY 17, 2006 How do you talk bad about a beer that you have paid for more than a few times? Well this is one of those beers. It’s not great, but it’s REALLY good at being average. So much so that you drink it cause of it’s familarity. The sweet maltiness is just very comforting to me. Like an old girlffriend booty-call.

I think this is the best beer made by Shipyard. It’s also the hardest one to find (for me). Has a decent amount of hops for a pale ale and has a slight bitterness, but is balanced.

Bottle. Golden-amber with small head. Malty-sweet, fruity (peaches), somehow light-struck, dry and little salty finish, medium bodied but with watery texture. Thanks Bierkönig.

sayravai (4691) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 15, 2005
(Bottled) Clear golden color with a small, tight head. Slightly plasticky and cardboardy, ashy and hoppy aroma. Quite aromatic-hoppy, reasonably malty and pleasant flavor. Medium-bodied, smooth-carbonated palate. A decent, aromatic but plain ale.
