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."

DuffMan (6670) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 10, 2008
Clear amber, big cream coloured haed with excellent retention, leaving chunky lace down the glass. Interesting aroma, almost perfumey, ginger spice, caramel, and subtle stone fruits. Full-bodied malt-forward palate with a moderately resinous hop finish. I really liked this one as a bit of a different take on a style that often comes across as a dumbed-down cascade-laden IPA.

Radek Kliber (6406) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JAN 29, 2009
Bottle 355ml
Appearance: straight clear amber with rater larger foamy top. Little lace.
Nose: crystal malt with average hop feel, sugary dusty sweetness. 5+
Flavor/Palate : Medium bodied with thinner sides. Slight hint of English character all covered up with sweet malts that don’t match to well with style. Bit too sweet. Washed up finish.

Svesse (6080) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - FEB 6, 2011
(Bottle, Oliver Twist, Stockholm) Pale amber colour with brief, white head. Fruity, slightly malty nose with notes of grainy malt, toffee and orange peel. Fruity, malty taste with grainy malt, toffee and a mild citrussy bitterness in the finish. Rather light body, fairly dry. Clean and enjoyable, but hardly exciting.

HogTownHarry (6064) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - NOV 7, 2007
Bottle (341ml). Shared with blankboy, GregClow and tupalev, tupalev’s bottle. Clear light amber, small head. Slightly papery aroma, light dry grainy malt, very weak hops, I guess they’re somewhat herbal. Tastes exactly as it smells - a little papery, weak malt, not much hop bitterness or alcohol or anything, really. Average body, somewhat flat ... mostly just boring; thin.
