A: Pours a nice golden amber color with large bubbles of carbonation. The head disappated somewhat quickly.

S:Smells of subtle hops and a little burnt sugar. A slight astringent aspect is there also.

T: Tastes like Heineken with a little sweeter malt. Not bad, but not that good either.

M: Clean and dry.

D: OK. Not a bad purchase, but theres tons of better beers out there.

DATE REVIEWED: June 29, 2014... GLASSWARE: Barley Creek pint... OCCASION: prepping for P90X3--starting tomorrow...APPEARANCE: quickly dismissed off-white head; body is translucent copper with subtle, sparse effervescence... AROMA: caramel malts join with softer hops to produce a relatively pleasant promise... PALATE: sessionably sippable; slightly buttery; little or no aftertaste... TASTE: buttery caramel malts, front and center; a bit of blood iron, metallic hops; some fruity esters are involved--not so much complex as a base mixture of beer's usual elements ... OVERALLL: described as an American blond by Beer Advocate, I though this played more as an ESB--refreshing like a Kolsch, but more publike in its demeanor and flavor profile--not quite solid enough to demand seconds but not offensive...

The Export is my go to beer when the only other options is Miller and Budweiser; perfectly drinkable beer that you could have one too many of. I always like to support local and Shipyard produces a lot of other good beers. It has better taste and presence on the pallet than a macro, but does no favors either.

Only the second Shipyard I've had, and probably the better of the two. I was impressed with it's appearance - a very nice dark amber color, almost honey-like. The odor was a weird mix of malty sweetness with you regular beer smell. I wasn't entirely sure I liked it, but it was altogether that bad. Mouthfeel was just a bit better than okay. I was very impressed with the taste - a nice roasty, sweet, malt and hops flavor that was crisp going down. Overall, a decent beer. I'm glad I still have plenty to go through.

The beer looks better than it tastes. Nice big head but light aroma are combined with an over-carbonated texture that makes this ale taste watered down.
Not unpleasant as a quick thirst quencher, but not something I want to go back to you with any frequency.
