Predictable color, swiss-cheese foam (irregular, large bubbles). Aroma promises clean hops to come, but the thin body doesn’t let them out to play. This is dry dry dry on the palate and borderline dusty on the finish, swallowing the poetentially sweet malt and hop bouquet in its unrelenting Brut-ishness. Overall, it’s not offensive, but I won’t seek it out again.

Tap at Luke’s lobster in DC. In Mason jar. Copper with small white head. Smells of cheap grain, and taste is similar. Sweet and some malt there. Pretty below average.

bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Nearly clear dark amber with a head that drops to a light cover, strips of lace. Taste is caramel malt that grows into a medium fizzed swallow, the malt continuing to grow until light hops enter to keep things in check. A "plain-jane" brew, but awfully easy to drink.

Pours copper with a thin fading white head. Aroma of wheat and metallic "dirt " for lack of a better image. Taste of classic Pilsner with a tang of dry wheat. Dry finish in the mouth. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

I waited a month or two before drinking so the oxidation might me my fault. The skunky smell and average taste are all Shipyard’s fault. Too sweet of a start and too bitter a finish. Bad combo.

Had a can on the Amtrak to portland. I haven't seen this anywhere else. Solid flavor and head. High alcohol content. I would drink it again. Maybe on tap somewhere? ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured a copper hue with a thin white head which was gone in a hurry......aroma of touch of pine, sweet malt......taste is pine and malt up front with a fair mouthfeel, then it is gone and a thin body and bitterness show up to give it a weak back end. I liked where it started, but not where it ended.

This was a disappointment usually I enjoy ale’s, Too bitter with a lingering after taste, but if that is what they were going for then they got it right.
