Best by date on the bottle. Does not taste like a blond ale to me, but more like an english style cream ale sort of like Boddington's or Wexford Cream Ale. Not what I expected but not bad. I would rather drink this than their lousy pumpkin ales any day of the week. Cheers! B- (80-84) score range

Appearance – Clear pale amber beer with a two finger head.

Aroma – Light caramel malts.

Taste – Slight caramel malt, almost a little cidery. Somewhat bitter.

Mouthfeel – Average, not too thin but not heavy.

Overall – A good solid beer, but for the odd cidery flavor.

A pretty average start to the Beer Advent Calendar 2017.
When you're more excited about where the beer is from (Maine!) than the actual product, that's a bad sign.
But not a "bad" beer, per se. A decent ale, with a bit of extra sweetness. Honey?
The finish is bitter, which helps make it more palatable.

12oz bottle, day 1 of the 2017 Craft BeerAdvent Calendar. Kind of a boring-sounding brew to kick off this big deal, IMHO.

This beer pours a clear, bright medium golden yellow colour, with four fingers of puffy, loosely foamy, and fizzy off-white head, which leaves a bit of low-lying streaky lace around the glass as it quickly dissipates.

It smells of semi-sweet, grainy and doughy caramel malt, buttered white bread, faint generic citrus rind, a hint of earthy yeastiness, and very tame leafy, weedy, and floral noble hop bitters. The taste is bready and doughy caramel malt, plain Ritz crackers, some muddled pome and citrus fruitiness, kind of estery yeast, and more well-understated leafy, herbal, and floral verdant hoppiness.

The carbonation is pretty weak in its 'took a mental health day' frothiness, the body a decent middleweight, and generally smooth, nothing really extant here that might cause any sort of fuss. It finishes on the sweet side, but that hardly comes as a surprise now.

Overall - yeah, this is one plain-Jane offering, with little hop offset to the essentially thorough malt onslaught. The package that this is part of claims that the contents are an 'All Star Edition' - not so far it isn't, but Shipyard has never really floated my particular boat, so maybe it's just me.

Amber color with a thick off-white head with decent retention.
Citrusy aroma with notes of oranges, white grapes, lemon and biscuit malts.
Flavor with notes of mint, earthy and citrusy hops, slightly toasted and biscuit malts, lemon, oranges and medicinal herbs. Dry and bitter aftertaste.
Bordering medium body with appropriate carbonation.
Beer with nice malt complexity with interesting choice of hops. Original. It reminded me of an ESB with American accent.

Pours a clear golden amber with quickly resolving head with persistent lacing.
Smell is a sweet malt with a bit of dark fruit.
Taste is slightly sweet caramel with a hint of medicinal hop at the finish.
