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

Similiar dry grainy head as the Prelude, but this time over a deep reddish brown glowing body. The Aroma is a bit lemony and sharp with contrast with the soft butterscotch of the yeast and caramel of the malt. The Flavor is warm and earthy. They did a good job of blending the diacetyl of the yeast with the similar flavors of the malt. A hint of alcohol warmth lurks underneath. Very biscuit-like. Mouthfeel is a bit dry and fibrous, but not overly carbonated.

Bottled. Dark amber. Flower and resiny. Very clean - near metallic - maltiness. Dry finish with lingering bitterness. This is wheat beer??

nice amber color with a slightly off-white head consisting of rather large bubbles. aroma is caramelly with a decent amount of citrus from the hops. bit of apple and bitterness in the flavor along with some sweetness..all in all, not too shabby.

Enjoy Before Aug ’02: Another old bottle but i figure i’d give it a try anyways. Pours orange amber with a big off white head which leaves some decent lace. Nose is earthy, sour. Sweet first, citric qualities, light bodied, nice hoppy fruitiness in the finish. Not too bad, as Im not very impressed by this brewery, but this is fairly decent.

Wow. An unbelievable winter brew. Sweet mix of flowery hops with a touch of dryness. Overall, a very enjoyable brew.

Pretty interesting. The beer was a lot darker than I was expecting, but tasted swell. I’m usually not much for wheat beers, and I think this is the first winter wheat I’ve seen. Citric, full bodied, pretty decent. I don’t think I’d go out and buy this again, but it was alright.

3/9/02: Light in color. Finish doesn’t end well. Even if this wasn’t a Winter ale, it wouldn’t be that great.

Since when is a weizen a winter ale?…There are oranges, but they are not ripe yet…There are lemons, but they have already been chewed…Some caramel and hops…Not impressed by their products…

Pours a slightly chill hazed orange-amber color, the head beige, the lace is adequate. Nose is malt and earthy from the wheat. Front sweet, top light, the finish is dry, acidic, and nicely hopped as the 5 hops show through.
