Shipyard has always been a good local choice, and for those times when I want a nice ale with a crisp and slightly hopped bite, I will pick up a Shipyard Export.

A: A wonderful orange/gold color with a nice white rocky head that leaves a decent lace.

S: Not overpowering at all, very sedate aromas. Balanced malt with a slight hops aroma.

T: This is where Export shines. A great malty flavor, that is slightly sweet, and finishes with a slightly bitter/grassy hops flavor. A very nice flavor balance that hits the spot.

M: Silky and clean, not too bitter, not too malty. Very well balanced and very enjoyable.

D: Goes down smooth, and clean. Excellent with seafood or steak, or on on its own. Not one of those beers that fills you up quick or overpowers the palate.

This is one beer that goes great at a cookout, at a casual dinner or a quiet night out. Very easy to drink, and reminds you of New England. Another good local offering for me.

Best Enjoyed Before: Feb 2015

Pours a very nice clean/clear dark golden yellow/orange color, nice carbonation, with a nice little fizzy white head, which leaves some sticky lacing behind. The nose is malty, kinda yeasty, and sweet. The taste is malty, yeasty, with some grapefruit notes. Medium body. Overall not too bad, a nice thirst quencher.
