an extremely plain and almost flavorless summer beer, which is odd because it has more body than it needs to with this little flavor. brassy color, a little dull looking from the bottle but holding a decent white head and leaving some patchy froth lacing as I drink it down (very quickly). the best feature is the feel, great carbonation and a clean finish, but that's expected because there isnt much flavor to clean up. a really mild two row malt base is basically irrelevant, and the hops are for balance only, no real flavor to them. the thing I taste the most is the yeast, which is a clean and very basic ale yeast. I think more grain profile (not body) on this beer would make it a little better, but its good for mindless summer drinking. I much prefer it with spicy food, can cleanse the palate pretty will without getting too filling. nothing special though overall from shipyard. they save their magic for the signature series.

On tap in a Sam's pint glass.

A- Clean and light golden color. About a 1/2f head, super white. Nice lacing.

S- Light grain and malt aroma.

T- Lots of pasty grain.

M-Bone dry, bitter, pasty. Oddly easy drinking.

O- More "crafty" than craft.
