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."

(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.

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.

jbruner (2920) - Athens, Georgia, USA - AUG 6, 2012
Pours a clear golden amber from the bottle with good.tan head and great lacing. Aroma of english pale malts and slight hops. Taste is better than the smell, bitter yet refreshing. Solid pale ale.

Finhead (1325) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - JUL 6, 2012
A clear amber-orange pour with an off-white head. The nose has an herbal and pine hop aroma with some light bread malt. The light body has a crisp texture with lively carbonation. It has a bittersweet initial taste that grows more bitter into a dry finish.

cheap (4525) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 12, 2012
Nice moustache. Strong old winey palate. Slight fruit aroma. Feels like much more than 4.8% and I usually like lower alky beers. Fairly good co2 sizzle. Ropey. Metallic hints. Bitterness sets in as session continues. Takes a few to get used to.

Malty caramel aroma nice clear amber color. But taste comes out bitter and bland. This isn't a terrible ale but lags after such a nice aroma ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Slightly hazy amber beer. Toffee on the nose. Light crispy palate. Toffee malt, crisp. Just a little hop fruit and bitterness coming through before the dry finish. Not bad.

micronaut129 (241) - chalfontborotowntonbergville, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 30, 2012
Quite a nice looking beer, quite handsome. Burnished orange in color or copper, lots of tan foamy head and perfectly carb’d. Plenty of butterscotch aroma here. Rather high for a pale ale. Fighting through I can smell desent sweet malts and some hops. The diacetyl that was so prevalent in the nose isn’t that pronounced on the palette. There is a good strong malt bill here. Sweet it is yes. Hops have a bite but are very lean, too lean for an APA. There is a light biscuit finish. Medium mouthfeel and sticky and a slight bitter finish. Okay so is this an American pale or English. The envelope please...
