I think this was the best beer I had at GABF. Certainly my girlfriends favorite. I could easily drink it all day. Not too sweet, just right.

This is now my go to beer on the east coast of Florida. Fuller body and with nice caramel. Not sure how they get the flavor but my girlfriend and I loved it.

Had at Jupiter Craft Brewers Festival 2012. Once Due South gets into production this one is going to be selling like crazy. Think of those caramel cream candies. This beer smells AND tastes just like that. Match those with a well bodied beer that has a good creamy mouthfeel that many in this style just don’t have and you got a great tasting, easy drinking brew.

Floback (523) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - JUL 4, 2013
On tap at the Mellow Mushroom, Delray Beach, FL. Nice size tan head over a murky, honey-brown body. The aroma is sweet & enticing with notes of shortbread cookie dough and caramel. Flavors of caramel, wheat, cookie dough, subtle piney hops, vanilla, and cheesy, dusty yeast in the finish. The mouthfeel is pleasantly velvety and smooth. Medium carbonation and medium body. This is a very well-executed brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I was able to drink this beer effortlessly and with great pleasure. Sweetish but nowhere near cloying, minimal hop presence. An excellent restaurant beer.

otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 21, 2013
Appearance: Slightly hazy hue of burnt caramel with glints of cherry wood along the sides. A khaki head lingers thick and bubbly. No lace.
Nose: Cooked caramel and caramel nougat. Caramel cream in the back. Sticky. Freshly dipped caramel apples still soft to the touch. Honey kissed and caramel dipped cereal grains.
Palate: Medium weight with a creamy lightly sticky mouthfeel. Caramel dominates in the middle while bitter apple and pear skins cleanse at the back of each quaff to bring me back for more. Caramel bran muffins. Vanilla in my breath. Toasted chestnuts dipped in caramel.
Final Thoughts: I have a soft spot for cream ales and the Caramel Cream Ale from Due South hit the spot. Since my initial tasting, I have had the pleasure of quaffing quite a few more glasses of this delicious brew and it never grows old. Excellent balance of bitterness, sweetness, and sessionability.

Darker than most cream ales, this one is quite caramel forward in both aroma and flavor. Sort of like a cream soda beer. Pours a very nice reddish brown with a thin beige head. Nice full creamy body. Hands down the best cream ale I’ve had.

ExpendableHero (745) - Florida, USA - JUL 10, 2013
Hazy brown color with a white head. Strong aromas of caramel and something earthy. Tastes of sweet caramel, some butterscotch, mild chocolate, some almond/pecan, and other sweet nutty flavors. Sweet caramel finish. Somewhat creamy, but this is a great beer. Very good stuff.

burg326 (3575) - Florida, USA - AUG 26, 2012
On draft at the brewery, poured an amber color, aromas of caramel cream, and light malt. Flavors are all caramel, and some light candy, real sweet overall, lots of caramel, and very sessionable.

RolkaNation (141) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - SEP 11, 2012
On draft at Tap 42 in Ft Laud/Hollywood. Never heard of Due South before seeing it on the board. Nice beer. Aroma of burnt toffee and vanilla. Taste starts with a caramel sweetness followed by a creamy touch of vanilla and malt. Solid, interesting beer.
