Shipyard Summer Ale

Remember when George and Jerry couldn't get anything down on paper for their NBC pilot? They had good ideas but let distractions get in their way. I think they got to, "I walk in and say 'Hi'. You say 'Hi' back to me." Well, that's me today, so right to the beer review.

This afternoon is super hot and humid. So I'm drinking Shipyard Summer Ale brewed by Shipyard Brewing Company in Portland, Maine. The label depicts a lobster in a lounge chair drinking a mug of beer on the beach. Best Enjoyed Before September, 2010.

Nice fruity aroma, orange, peach and mango. Fruity flavors to start, too, but a little less tropical. More orange and lemon and citrus, zesty tang flavors everywhere. Lightly bitter. There are some band-aid off flavors as the beer progresses with some metal on the aftertaste. Crisp, good carbonation, body is a little light. Those off flavors do persist, however, killing the experience. Not a happy ending! Try it if you want.

This beer was very boring to me just a typical lager. There are many other better summer beers out there I think.

Hey Cerveza Chica. No doubt about it. Just another boring beer, and for me, a bit below average too!
