Pours a golden color with a thick fluffy head. The aroma is of hops and malt...and the flavor is the same, with a little bit of twist. The flavor is hoppy and malty and has a nice refreshing touch to it...kinda cool. Medium body and very drinkable and refreshing. Tastes like summer. The dry hopping at the end is noticable and awesome.
Below is from Garrett Oliver:
"Shackmeister is a 12 Plato pale ale brewed from English malts and dry-hopped with Glacier. I formulated it specifically to complement Shake Shack's food..."

Tried on-tap at Shake Shack in Covent Garden, London. A pint in a thin plastic cup. I believe I probably had this beer before at Shake Shack in NYC as well, but I didn't take any notes on it last time.
Pours fairly clear, with a faint haze to it, and deep golden in hue. Head is a frothy and persistent off-white crest. Lacing is solid, carbonation is fine. Looks pretty decent.
Nose is fair: clean malt underpinning with a touch of nuttiness. Very mild hops make an appearance, although they're fairly neutral—it's "hops" without much in the way of character. There's not a lot going on, but it's not bad either.
Taste is a little better. There's a tang of ginger or something spicy on the front, backed with some clean faint malt supporting it. Hop character is muted but pleasant leading to a slight sting of herbs or spice on the back. It's decent stuff.
Feel is pretty smooth but a bit lightweight overall.
Overall, it's pretty drinkable without being really interesting. It works fine with the smokestack burger I had, which I guess is the point, right?
