Pours a medium golden yellow with moderate head.
Smell is a light sweetness with faint wheat.
Taste starts malty then grassy with a pretty mild wheat finish. Faint earthy spice at the end.

Dark gold color, medium to edge-only white collar. Slight beer aroma, very drinkable moderate beer taste. I like it.

Nothing beats an ice cold Shippy summer ale on a scorcher of a day in Maine

Served from a tap in conical pint glass at Elbow Too in Laurel, NY.
A: Pours a clear golden color with no more than a one quarter inch head, modest retention and some lacing.
S: Light aromas of lemon citrus and cracker.
T: Palate follow nose. Very low level of bitterness (or flavor, to be honest). Clean finish.
M: Very light, modest carbonation.
O: Very little of the flavor I would expect from a wheat ale. In a blind tasting, it could have passes for a somewhat more flavorful adjunct lager. On the upside, light, refreshing, and drinkable. Probably will not be back.

Bottle to snifter.
LOOK: Yellow...no head.
AROMA: Weak. Veggie, grass, hay.
TASTE: Funky mold, with some citrus.
FEEL: thin to medium body. Pretty flat also.

Not pleasant.
