Bought a six pack of this stuff, pours light amber in color with a medium white head. Aroma and flavor are of caramel malt and some fruitness.More bitter than the golden ale but still balanced and drinkable. I would prefer this over their golden for summer barbecues.

Pours a medium copper color with a white, fizzy, fully diminishing head. Clear body. Aroma is of light bread malts with soapy notes. Initial taste is lightly acidic, shifting to a light sweet finish with long duration. Light on the mouth, it has a watery texture with soft carbonation. Reviewed on February 12th, 2007.

porterhouse (1581) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - JUL 14, 2006
(Bottle (best before 9/06) from Julio’s Liquors) Reddish-amber with small biscuit head. Nose is light floral hops and malt. Decent full mouthfeel, a touch fizzy though. Flavor pretty much matches aroma - somewhat flowery. Touch of bitter in finish.

hopdog (9189) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 28, 2006
12oz bottle acquired in trade with ppoitras (thanks!). Poured a deep orange color, with a reddish tint, and an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of oranges, grapefruit, floral, toasted malts and some caramel. Aromas on the softer side. Tastes of toasted malts, light caramel, and some citrus. Thinner body.

Coutesy of DYCSoccer17
Bottle. Malty sweet nose along with some spicy and sugar notes. Red body almost orange with off white head that flattened out. Sugar punch of sweetness up front also spicy. Sweet sugar mellowed out with some hop bitterness. Quit a blend here decent brew.

Thaichile (599) - 10aFly, New Jersey, USA - APR 12, 2006
Bottle. Pours a clear reddish color with a minimal head. Nose is a mixture of fruit and malt. Flavor is of apples with some bittering. Not very complex, but not offensive. The fruit flavors developed as the beer warmed. Not bad at all. Good session beer.

ClarkVV (3892) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 8, 2005
Best before May 2006 bottle consumed 12/7/05. Orange-tangerine-strawberry colored body, with light copper tinges. White head is pretty well retained, creating minimal lace. Filtered/force carbonated, that sort of thing (same as all shipyards). Aroma has light fruity esters (cherries, prunes, berries) with some vanilla, light toasted malts and light floral hops. Flavor has the same light yeast apparency as most shipyards, light diacetyl buttercream, floral notes from the hops and a crystally, hard tasting maltiness, not terribly complex at all. Light blandish white dough, some saltiness, lots of carbonation, watery texture, medium-light body, no alcohol apparency.
