The Shipyard Brewing Company's flagship beer, is a full bodied ale, with a hint of sweetness up front, a subtle and distinctive hope taste, and a very clean and traditional finish.

Really nice golden color with a faint (almost Bud?) nose. Some malty but more sweet in the flavor with a dry, hoppy finish as promised in the commercial description. Average as average can be.

Okay tasting beer. Very good taste but a very bitter after taste. Overall okay but the aftertaste is very harsh.

An average, mediocre beer all around. Flavor is well balanced but too subtle. Needs more punch to help it stand out from the crowd.

Thanks to obeygiant for this. Pours deep gold with a big, creamy, white head and lots of carbonation. Aroma of malt, some hops, and citrus. Tastes malty, with a hoppy, slightly dry, citrusy finish. Medium mouthfeel.

OBF 2004: My first shipyard, and it was a pleasant introduction to their beers. Fruity, malty aroma. I liked this one alot. Malty, bready flavors. This is a good beer from a truly good brewer.

Pale gold with minimal head and lacing, aroma is of some sweet malt . Taste a llittle malty with little hops in the background. Decent but medicore beer from "below standards" microbrewery.

Pale golden, slightly hazed appearance, good head formation. Clean malt, bubble-gum aroma. Sweet minty malt palate, souring slightly in the finish.

UPDATED: AUG 12, 2004 I was expecting more from this micro brew. I had it on tap at the Orlando International Airport - this brewery is mistakenly listed as closed on a few websites, but it is certainly open. (8/4/04) The brew was smooth and crisp but just was lacking the "punch" I was expecting. There wasn’t really anything to distinguish it from an upscale Macro brew.

Pours a translucent gold with a medium frothy white head. Aroma is sweet and malty with some candyish notes hiding in there. Taste is nice! Good balance between the malted sweetness and the hops. Some biscuity notes are there along with fainter toffee. The Fuggles make this a pleasantly hopped ale. Smooth mellowed feeling on the palate and a slightly bitter finish. Very nice beer and very drinkable. Would be a good session beer!

Pours a dark golden color with a thin white, slightly persistent head. At first blush I would call the aroma phenolic, but after further study I realize that it is more toffee-like. Has a slight bitterness in it not usually found in a blonde ale. Some sweet caramel notes up front with a heavy fuggles presence in the back end. Decent full body, slightly sticky, finishes well. Overall, decent.
