12 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a clear, very effervescent, pale golden color with a quarter of a finger of white-colored head that quickly dissolved away into a lacing of foam that completely covered the top of the beer. Looks like a MBC beer, unfortunately.

Aroma: Ok aroma. Some notes of toasted malt, imparting some notes of English muffins, followed by some notes of corn and/or rice adjuncts. Smells like a BMC beer, unfortunately.

Taste: Doesn’t taste like a BMC beer, however. There’s some good, bready, toasted malt flavors followed by some caramel and brown sugar-like sweetness, some lemony citrus, a touch of clover, cilantro and honeysuckle.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied and nicely carbonation. With an ABV of 5.1%, there is no alcohol on the palate.

Overall: Decent beer, with some nice flavors. I wouldn’t turn it down if offered, but as there are many, many better summer beers out there, I’m not getting it again on my own.

I'm generally a fan of the Shipyard line, and while I'm not as down on this one as the Bros, I have to say this is one of the less inspired offerings from Shipyard. Just 'blah' and a bit harsh and metallic on the palate. Picked up a 12-pack on sale (about a buck a bottle) and still can't say I'd buy more even at that price.
