COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Shipyard Ale is a non-traditional, full bodied American Red Ale. The warm coppery orange color, combined with distinctive wheat malt flavors and hoppy characteristics, are sure to please most anyone. Winter Ale is made up of 5 different malts and 5 different hops, creating a complex flavor.
This is also Shipyard Nitro which can be found during the winter months at Federal Jacks Brew Pub

Shipyard NITRO, served through a stout faucet with beer gas. Very hoppy on the nose, slight citrus with some pine flavors. Pours creamy white and cascades beautifully to a dark gold color with thick white head, like any good pub ale. The taste is very hoppy, for a shipyard beer, citrus and pine flavors, with a some caramel and honey malts. The mouthfeel is great.

12oz bottle found in the bargain bin for 99 cents. Bottle labeled best before J(une) 07 - no wonder why it was in the sale bin. Poured a medium and slightly hazy amberish color with a large sized off white head. Some suspended floaters. Aromas of caramel, citrus, and somewhat sugary. Tastes of caramel, citrus, and lighter sugary sweet. Some lacing left on the glass.

I liked this beer the warmer it got...strangely enough. Just enough hops to keep me happy and enough malt to keep things interesting and smooth. Good beer.

good balance between hops and malt sweetness. Little bit medicinal taste. Not too bitter nor too sweet. copper color, good head, thin body. Pretty much a plain, ordinary brew.

hopslovin (194) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JUL 7, 2007
Amber pour with off-white head. Aroma consisted of sweet malt and a little spice. Flavor was a bit more bitter than I expected. The malt is overpowered by the hops. Watery mouthfeel, bitter finish.

Im not a big fan of the more bitte finish beers, but i really like this winter by shipyard. Amber poor with not a lot of white head. Very simple, spiced ale with plenty of hops and malt, with a mild bitter finish. Not a top beer, but it is a decent winter ale at a good price.

The Dan Journal #7. 12oz bottle. Clear with a deep copper hue. Minimal white head. Buttery malt nose. Brown sugar. Long lingering bitter flavor. Initially bitter ebbing into a cloying finish.
