rmussman (1702) - California, USA - MAR 5, 2007
Sampled in California suprisingly. Very nice and smooth beer. Aroma and appearance are just tame and kind of light. However the beer drinks really well and has a suprising flavor that is rich and lasting. A nice choice.

Schultsc (572) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 16, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 11, 2008 Pours a clear medium amber-gold with a medium light tan head. The aroma conveys lots of crisp, toasted grain aromatices with some herbal and spicy hops notes. The flavor is quite dry with nice grain astringency and English hops flavors of earth and fruit. Body is light and easy-going and conveys its flavors well across the palate and into the finish. Finely structured and interesting study of english grain characteristics with a pleasant hops supplement.

nearbeer (3584) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 30, 2007
12 oz, bb Jan 08. Clear orange-copper with a smallish, lasting head. Caramel-butterscotch with some earthy, tea leaf and slight orange marmalade aroma. Initial taste of malt is quickly balanced by bitter, nutty, earthy and roasted flavors. Turns to a crisp apple, caramel, and bitter green herb flavor on the finish. Dry, tingly, astringent and light bodied.

22oz bottle from BevMo. Clear amber body with a rigid tan head. It seems "glued" to the beer and is leaving no lace as I swirl it around the glass. Aroma is slightly nutty and malty with light caramel notes and spicy hops. Taste leans heavily on the hops and backed up with lighter caramel, some earthy notes, dried nuts, and toasty malts. Body is medium and mildly carbonated. Pleasant feel on the palate. Finishes with spicy hops, light sweet maltiness, caramel, and dried nuts. My favorite beer from Shipyard by far!

Amber gold color, moderate malt and field aroma. An easy drinking, relatively light beer with some crispness, flowers, hops, grains. Not too special but not bad either...a decent session beer.
