3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JAN 21, 2005 This beer is for those who believe that a quality simple taste is the best. There is a hint of lemon taste in this one. Generously hopped and malty this one does not disappoint despite being just a little salty. Wonderful nose and head. Deep golden color and a light sweet malty aftertaste. Wonderful!

This beer has a amber body - hue apperance and a coarse white scum collar. I have drunk the beer from the bottle and it had a lot of carbonic acid. The initial flavor taste is bitter.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUL 14, 2005 This one pours a gold that is slightly darker than you average macro. The head is just off-white and it diminishes quickly. The nose is lightly lemon-piney and sweet. The first taste is a present but relatively mild bitterness with hints of grapefruit. It is followed by a bubblegum or honey sweetness in the middle and a mildly dry finish. This is not bad for the style, and it doesn’t taste exactly like a pilsner as beers of this style are prone to do.

On the one hand this starts as a simple ale - which is ultimately just what it IS, but a very well crafted ale that has balance of malt and hops and an excellent finish. Could drink loads of this with pleasure.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours with a three-fingered white head that fades quickly and leaves a good lace. Medium carbonation. Light almost clear amber color. Nose is somewhat hoppy. Starts and finishes hoppy with a lingering hoppy aftertaste. Medium bodied. 83˘ for a 12oz bottle from Cumberland Farms Convenience Greenland, NH.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Gold copper, dense white head. Unusual herbal/veggie aroma. Some butterscotch, as well. Sweetish, toffee-ish taste, with an herbal, floral note. May have been a bit stale.

2.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
No aroma, no head. The golden color is as advertised, and the taste is full and crisp, with no heaviness, like a good ale should be. Unfortunately, I didn’t find there to be anything remarkable about this beer. I have tried several Shipyard varieties, and this may be the best "drink a sixpack" one in the bunch.

yellow, not gold. aroma of stale beer. I am going to say this botttle may have been cold then hot then cold and hot again. Went bad, skunky. not good.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Burnt Beer Night: Dark yellow color with a medium head. Old hops and sour alcohol dominate this beer. Did they export it around the world on a paddleboat before selling it?

Burnt Beer Night: Gold Coloring. Good Head. Watery Overall. Some Hops.. A Little Crisp, But Really Nothing Redeeming Here.
