This pale ale pours a not so pale orange color with a very thin white head. The smell is mild and of grains. It is not particularly pleasant. The taste is quite a bit better, albeit very simple. It is of grains (slightly roasted) with a hint of citrus that primarily comes through in the aftertaste. There are some mild yeast and toffee flavors as well. The body is on the light end of medium and the finish is semi-dry. There is very little hop presence at all. This is a very basic beer, not offensive in any way, but not exciting either. I would definitely drink it again, but not if I was looking for anything interesting.

14 oz. on tap at Hadlock Field in Portland, Maine, served in a plastic cheater pint.

Appearance: Clear copper. Very thin head; mostly bubbles.

Aroma: A little bit of fruit along with some grass and a bit of herbal touch.

Taste: Toffee, grain, a little bit of citrus. Somewhat Bass-like. Herbal character from the nose is more noticeable on the palate.

Mouthfeel: Smooth and easy.

Overall: Nice traditional ale. Not a risk-taker, but a fine all-purpose ale.

OK, not great; I am glad I got this one as a gift and I did not buy it on my own.

Pours a light brown body . Small 1/4 in head. No detectable lacing

Smell is not very pronounced. I'm not getting much of anything . Maybe a slight malt smell

Taste is malt forward and not bad ! Very slight hop note on the finish

Feel is a bit over carbonated

There is nothing wrong with this pale ale! It would do anybody well on a hot day. But there are other pale ale's that I would reach for before I chose this one again. The 4.9 ABV doesn't help...

By far the best Pale Ale I've ever had. It has a great look out of the bottle - amber hue - although not much of a head or lacing. The smell was just superb - not your run-of-the-mill pale ale scent. Mouthfeel was okay, too carbonated for my taste, but speaking of the taste, it was great. Hints of fruitiness to go mix quite well with the bitterness of the ale. Overall, I consider this the best Shipyard offering I've had to date.

Pours a copper color. Smell is malty with a slight pine and citrus.
Taste follows the nose with a sweet malt with pine and citrus flavor.
Nice dryish malt. Not hoppy. Very nice EPA.
