2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

Bottle at home. Pours Amber with one finger of white head. Some caramel and toffee in the nose and flavor. Decent beer. Better than the ratings.

Tap. Pours clear pale amber, medium off white head, good lacing. Aroma is pretty honey breads. Flavor follows, medium sweet, very light bitter, honey, caramel, a touch of acidity. Medium body, high carbonation. Meh

Yuck! Rubber taste along with some other off putting flavors. I did not enjoy drinking this beer at all in fact I poured out more than half of it.

Not bad for what it is. Some caramel. It's just not my style, but if someone offers one, I'll feel free to take it.

"not bad for a blonde ale, but nothing distinguished either. a non-descript too highly carbonated non-offensive light semi-refreshing ale. nothing more, nothing less."

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Oddbins.
Appearance - amber with a decent head.
Nose - lemon sorbet with a hint of pine. Some honey.
Taste - honey and cereal.
Palate - medium bodied with a creamy texture and a finish that is really far too cloying.
Overall - too sweet for this style.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Intensissimo l’aroma di malto e di agrumi, oltre che di punte di resina ed aghifoglie. Bello l’aspetto biondo ramato, quasi arancio, con una schiuma bianco sporco che tende a sparire subito però. In bocca sin presenta inizialmente dolce, dato il bel sentore e sapore Di malto. Corpo medio scarso, carbonatazione lieve, non risulta acquosa e la luppolatura Si avverte sul finale con una chiusura secca quando lunga. Buona birra per la Shipyard.
