Pours a clear gold color. 1/4 inch head of an off-white color. Slight retention and poor lacing. Smells of strong fruit, pale malt, and slight sweet malt. Fits the style of a Fruit/Vegetable Beer. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of strong fruit, pale malt, slight citrus hops, slight sweet malt, and a medicinal sharpness/metallic. Overall, weak appearance, aroma, body, and blend.

This is a very refreshing fruit based beer. If you like lighter beers with a nice fruity after taste, this one will be a home run.
It is great at what it is brewed for. Crisp and clean.

Shipyard is one of those brewers I really want to like more but it just falls short of my expectations...

Right out of the bottle it pours a nice burnt caramel color but the head simply doesn't want to form. The most appealing part of this brew is the smell - strong notes of melon, sweet, with only a distant hint of hops. The feel is mostly light, very watery, but otherwise good enough and the taste has a distinct flavor of watermelon but it only marginally blends well with the hops and malts. Overall, it's not a great beer but it certainly is one to have on hand by the pool or at the beach on a hot summer's day.

P- Poured from a 12 oz bottle,into a Funky Buddha snifter.Born on 03/07/2017.

L- Frothy white colored head that stands a half a finger tall,with low retention and minimal lacing.Gold colored body with good clarity.Low amount of carbonation.

S- On the nose I get mostly candied watermelon,with trace elements of sweet malt notes.For the most part it smells like a watermelon jolly rancher.

T- On the palate I get watermelon up front,sweet candied watermelon in the middle,and bready malt with wheat on the back end.

F- The mouth feel is thin with a watery texture,and medium to high amount of carbonation.Smooth on the finish.

This isn't a bad beer,but it's not really something I would drink all the time either.The watermelon has a bit of an artificial taste and smell to it.Not bad,but not great.But try it for yourself would be my recommendation.
