I took a break from putting things back down in the basement after bringing just about everything up last weekend to protect it from the rising waters we had.
Beer #279, which is the last beer in my beer of the month birthday gift, is Shipyard Export by Shipyard Brewing Company from Portland, Maine. The ABV of this American Blonde Ale is 5%.
Into my Conway Scenic Railroad glass went this clear golden amber brew with a nice frothy white head. The bubbles rising to the top were quite the sight to see…it was almost mesmerizing to look at. It looks like I actually captured those bubbles in the photo…cool. The nose was a bit on the sweet side with a nice malty, almost biscuit like aroma. I took a sip and got a sweetness up front that reminded me of honey. There was a grain like flavor there also. Towards the back end I got some hops in the form of a mild pine like flavor. It was kind of crisp, a bit on the low side carbonation wise, and had a medium body
I was this digging this and I thought it was the best of the four beers in the beer of the month set. Now I have to get back to work…it is amazing how much stuff one collects and stores in a typical basement over 14+ years.
