Review - Shipyard Brewing's Prelude Special Ale
"Prelude Special Ale is full-bodied in the true english style. It's a rich and nutty ale with a hoppy finish and an inviting deep amber hue. Available November-December" --Shipyard Brewing Co.
The Prelude Special Ale pours a reddish-amber color with a nice frothy head. Good lacing left behind by the mostly lasting head. Light carbonation in the body. Aroma's are of light malts, there is something sweet we can't put our sniffers on, and a faint hint of alcohol. Intial taste is a fleeting sweet that quickly steps aside, being ushered out by a light bitter finish. Light carbonation on the mouth with a watery feel. A slight charcoal taste is left behind.
