I drink this one straight from the bottle, so I can't tell you much on color.

It is readily available in Boston, so it's relatively inexpensive and better than almost anthing else out there (save Hop Devil). It has a good hoppy flavor with a nice, refreshing citrus finish. It's less dry than some others (ibid) but less sweet than Harpoon. I hope to try this one on draught somewhere soon so I can judge it there, but as long as the 12-packs are $10, I'll probably be staying home!

Seriously, this is a great year-round brew, particularly good in the warmer months. Another plus here is that Shipyard stamps the "Best By" date on the outside of the box, so you don't get excited only to open up a skunk farm.

This is a big problem in Boston. A lot of package, er, liquor, er, stores where you can buy beer have tried to get into the microbrew niche market, but 4 out of 10 times the beer is past its prime. Trust me, I've had enough bad ale to know what's good.

look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a light brownish/tan color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is kind of mild, a bit of malts. Taste is also light for the style, malts up front, hops at the finish. Some caramel, and just a bit dry. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is drinkable and decent, but nothing special.
