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.
