jasonp (1581) - Ashburn, Virginia, USA - JAN 24, 2005
Clear golden with quickly dissapating white head. Aroma is lightly malty and perfumy with some citrus. Taste is the same as the aroma with some lemon zest, grain and lightly floral bitter hops in the finish. Moderately sweet. Medium body with subtle carbonation. No lacing or head retention. Drinkable but boring.

UPDATED: JAN 21, 2005 This beer is for those who believe that a quality simple taste is the best. There is a hint of lemon taste in this one. Generously hopped and malty this one does not disappoint despite being just a little salty. Wonderful nose and head. Deep golden color and a light sweet malty aftertaste. Wonderful!

This beer has a amber body - hue apperance and a coarse white scum collar. I have drunk the beer from the bottle and it had a lot of carbonic acid. The initial flavor taste is bitter.

KarmanGhia (276) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 17, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 14, 2005 This one pours a gold that is slightly darker than you average macro. The head is just off-white and it diminishes quickly. The nose is lightly lemon-piney and sweet. The first taste is a present but relatively mild bitterness with hints of grapefruit. It is followed by a bubblegum or honey sweetness in the middle and a mildly dry finish. This is not bad for the style, and it doesnt taste exactly like a pilsner as beers of this style are prone to do.

On the one hand this starts as a simple ale - which is ultimately just what it IS, but a very well crafted ale that has balance of malt and hops and an excellent finish. Could drink loads of this with pleasure.

Pours with a three-fingered white head that fades quickly and leaves a good lace. Medium carbonation. Light almost clear amber color. Nose is somewhat hoppy. Starts and finishes hoppy with a lingering hoppy aftertaste. Medium bodied. 83 for a 12oz bottle from Cumberland Farms Convenience Greenland, NH.

Suttree (6286) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 5, 2004
Gold copper, dense white head. Unusual herbal/veggie aroma. Some butterscotch, as well. Sweetish, toffee-ish taste, with an herbal, floral note. May have been a bit stale.

richlikebeer (838) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 12, 2004
No aroma, no head. The golden color is as advertised, and the taste is full and crisp, with no heaviness, like a good ale should be. Unfortunately, I didnt find there to be anything remarkable about this beer. I have tried several Shipyard varieties, and this may be the best "drink a sixpack" one in the bunch.

yellow, not gold. aroma of stale beer. I am going to say this botttle may have been cold then hot then cold and hot again. Went bad, skunky. not good.
