Pours orange. Aroma has some hops and malt. Average carbonation. Aftertaste has some bitterness, too much cloying sourness. On tap at St Johns tap room in Virgin Islands. drowland (8758) - Georgia, USA - JUN 12, 2011
6/12/11. 12oz bottle. Clearish light amber with a small tan head. Plain malty aroma with a hint of floral hops. Sweet, malty, buttery flavor.. blech! Ibrew2or3 (8614) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUL 30, 2009
Pours copper with full tan head. The aroma is muted malts mixing with spicy to earthy hops. The taste is malty with a layer of caramel to start before spicy hops and a dash of citrus acidity like bitterness come to the surface. By midway mild earthiness, spicy and floral hops all sort of over running the malts in a mild mannered way. It ends with a slight hop tingle, a mild bit of roast and a memory of malt sweetness.
Svesse (8601) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - FEB 6, 2011
(Bottle, Oliver Twist, Stockholm) Pale amber colour with brief, white head. Fruity, slightly malty nose with notes of grainy malt, toffee and orange peel. Fruity, malty taste with grainy malt, toffee and a mild citrussy bitterness in the finish. Rather light body, fairly dry. Clean and enjoyable, but hardly exciting. laiti (8481) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 28, 2012
35,5 cl bottle @ Olutravintola Esplanadi, BB 09/2012PorterPounder (7970) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 29, 2005
Aroma feels very english with lots of toffee hops and some caramel. Flavour has English toffee, grassy hops and caramel. Woody and nutty finish. Decent, and faithful to the style.
UPDATED: JAN 29, 2008 Rerate Aroma a little bit off, slightly lemony and sour, overall still decent though Original 3.7 Big C’s Liquors, Winter Park, Fl. 22 oz bomber. Pours a medium copper with a thin, but fluffy white head. Fresh, clean, slightly minty aroma with some underlying hints of fruit - nectarines perhaps. Good subtle bitter flavor, subtle citrus hoppiness. Some peppermint as well. Solid malty backbone - touch of maple syrup. Very solid pale ale. Would make a good session ale. Thick creamy mouthfeel. Best of the Shipyards thus far. TaktikMTL (7798) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 1, 2009

Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a bright amber color with a medium sized foamy white head that left decent lacing. The aroma was buttery with notes of biscuit and faint fruity hops. The flavor was butter, fruity hops and biscuit. Long butter and fruit finish. Medium body. Eh.
