It was a good tasting FLAVORED beer.

It had green apple after tastes as well as notes of ginger and maybe even mint?? Very refreshing, and I would recommend it as a dessert beer.

Mind you, this beer isn't a hard cider, so it isn't super sweet or extremely carbonated, It is a flavored beer. I would buy it again for sure

As a disclaimer, I love Shipyard, and always will, but... my Lord, oh Mainers from my north, what were you thinking?

The pour gave little to no head, the smell was less apple and more of a stale cider. The slight apple after taste is the best thing I can say about this very dry attempt at a apple ale.
