Had at Logan, where the options are always disappointing, and this did not disappoint in its disappointment. This has all the characteristics of a macro - so in that regards, if sales take off, they are ready. It has little smell or taste. I gave it a strong score for Look, as I am wearing my favorite sweater today, and I think the beer looks good next to me. Overall, this is very much a beer, so good work Shipyard.

12 FL. OZ. bottle
Served in a Shipyard Export pint glass

This beer is amber in color with golden highlights. It is topped with an inch of off-white head.

It has a skunked, Corona smell to it. There is a sweet grain smell too.

The taste isn't much better. I get a bitter metallic taste, and it tastes a little skunked.

Medium mouthfeel

This beer doesn't not taste at all how I remember it. It's been seven years, so I guess time may have warped my memory. It seems to be skunked, but I bought it at my go to store which is reputable and has fresh product. Either I remember a bad beer as good, or it got skunked along the way.

Drinkable, with a pleasant woody finish. However, it has a weak hop profile and tastes kind of like wort rinse...

Taste a lot like Budweiser, if Budweiser had a much more beer flavor to it instead of a watered down taste. I like it, but prefer Prelude from Shipyard. A pretty good beer.

I did not like this beer. Funk on the nose, no head to speak of, little body and an odd taste - bitter and foul. Mouthfeel was OK. Would not revisit.

12 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a pretty, semi-clear, golden amber color with a quarter of a finger of white-colored head that quickly and almost completely dissolved away into a thin halo of foam that gripped the sides of the glass.

Aroma: Not much in the way of aroma at all, in fact I don’t get anything in the way of aroma. Disappointing.

Taste: Better than the aroma. Nice, bready flavors of toasted malt up front, imparting some notes of whole wheat crackers and biscuits, followed by some caramel-like sweetness, black pepper, and finished with just the faintest hints of hops.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied and pretty smooth and creamy as there is very little in the way of carbonation. With an ABV of 5.1%, there is no alcohol on the palate.

Overall: Nice beer, with some good malty and sweet flavors. I’d certainly drink it again if offered.
