2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Yeah, this one is kinda mild. Light flavoring, with very little hops to give it bite. Aroma is mild citrus, and more alcohol than you’d think given the %. Finish is malty, though not in a balanced way. Mouthfeel is weighty, though not overly so. Nothing special, but nothing terrible either.

Bottle. Slightly hazed medium amber with a decent white head and lace. Aroma leading with floral and citrus hops, balanced by toasty malts. Slightly bitter flavor with citrus hops leading and lemon zest in the finish. Medium body and crispy carbonation.

"5 south pale ale, kinda light, but pretty unique in that it was bitter and vibrantly hoppy with low ibus. fairly flavorful and at least average...maybe better."

On tap at the brewpub. Not sure if this is the same pale ale I had at the brewpub based on all the low ratings I see here. The one I had was closer to an IPA in taste and character and was an overall great beer.

Draft at brewpub: once again, very similar structure to the IPA. Typical PNW hop notes, caramel, medium to light body, quite drinkable. Solid.
