3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAY 1, 2015 Bottle from Signal Variety, Plaistow, NH. Aroma is malty with a little bit of yeasty dough. Appearance is beautiful clear amber red with small white head and minimal lacing. Taste is moderately sweet with liquor aftertaste. Palate is medium bodied with thick texture and average carbonation. Touches off reactions in the back of the mouth like tannins in wine. Finish is moderate. Overall, a nice looking beer with a good mouth feel. Not the most interesting aroma and taste in the world but highly drinkable and enjoyable for other traits.

Pours a deep dark brown with a thick white head. Aroma of banana esters and funky yeast. Taste follows, signature shipyard yeast and that’s not a good thing. Rough.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a nice amber brown with a thin beige head that lasts. Taste is of roasted malt, caramel, grain, chocolate, citrus and some hops. Similar aroma. Has a full body with a slight bitter and dry finish. Easy to drink and rather enjoyable.
