Brewsday Tuesday: Shipyard Export Ale
Looking for some new beers I picked up a sampler of Shipyard Brewing Company’s beers. I may have had some of these when I lived up in NH, but I honestly can’t remember. Tonight I decided to start with the lightest of the group, their Export Ale. Cheers!
Name: Shipyard Export Ale
Brewed by: Shipyard Brewing Co.
Location: Portland, ME
Style/ABV: American Blonde Ale / 5.0%
Appearance: Pours a bright golden yellow with a one finger white head that fades. No lacing is present.
Smell: Sweet smelling malts with some mild fruitiness in the back.
Taste: Sweet light malts with a very low hop bitterness. Lingering flavor of biscuits.
Mouthfeel: Light and crisp with medium carbonation.
Overall: A very mild and refreshing beer without much complexity. Not something I would purchase again, but not something I would refuse.
