3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a pale, crystal clear gold color with little head. This brew has a buttery smell with floral hints. Pretty good taste with the buttery malts detected in the aroma making a return in the flavor with spicy hop bitterness in the showing up in the end. Tasty brew, could more than a few down in one sitting.

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."

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.
