On draught. Arrived to the table a mostly clear gold with a thin off-white head. Mild aroma of malt with some sweetness to it along with a hint of wheat grain. The flavor is malt, caramel, mild wheat grain, and some floral hops. Mild hops bitterness at the finish. Light-medium bodied. No problems.

Pours a dark straw from a bottle, aroma of sweet caramel and corn or something like that. Flavor is rather dry, with some hop bitterness. Meh.

Smells Like a normal wheat ale, slightly sweet and malty, taste is the same with a little bit of pilsner taste in there.. especially on finish, malt goes away over time and beer seems more bitter

Beerathon (1558) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 5, 2015
Golden yellow pour with pillowy white head. I hate to be overly critical of wheat ales, as its not a style I care for that much, but this one is worst than most. Cereal grains, wheat, lemon, lager like finish (sweet malts/corn). Find it neither refreshing or enjoyable. Just a weak beer with some off flavors.

DocJitsu (1264) - Florida, USA - JUL 3, 2015
Pours a clear, deep golden with a large, white head. Notes of banana, green grape, and seltzer. A much fuller mouthfeel than I anticipated. Toasted malt, banana, and green grape flavors. A touch eggy.

Blah - as plain & as boring as it gets! Light piss pour w/out much of a head or lacing. The aroma is pretty much nonexistent much like the flavor. Do not reccomend!

HoppyScallywag (114) - Butler, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 4, 2015
Weak aroma, weak taste, and weak palate. It has a crisp, bitter bite that disappears instantly. Really disappointed in Shipyard on this one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can from Foods Plus, Plaistow, NH. Aroma is minimal--slight malty breadiness/cereal? Appearance is clear golden with minimal sparkling and significant white frothy head (poured it kinda fast) with good lacing. Taste is mild but sweet over bitter. Palate is light to medium with creamy texture with soft carbonation and abrupt finish. Overall, a pretty attractive looking beer with decent mouthfeel but not much else going on. An inoffensive beer to have cold accompanying summer fare--hot dogs/burgers or lobster that goes along for the ride.f

12 oz bottle. Pours deep golden with tall, long-lasting, fluffy white head and lively carbonation. Aroma is of floral and grassy hops, bready malt and some citrus. Body is medium and crisp. Floral hops, pale malt and citrus fruit fill the mouth. Finish is light. Good session brew

A wheat ale for people who would maybe rather be drinking something other than beer. Inoffensive.
