4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: SEP 29, 2009 July 19, 2009; 12 oz. bottle. Amber color; thin head; sweet aroma, substantial piney, slightly-astringent bitterness; the Southern Tier influence is evident. A lucky find in the local grocery store. Will have one of these anytime. Update on Sept. 17, 2009: Have sampled this several times over the past couple of months and like this more than ever -- an uncommonly good APA. Dreadfully underrated.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Almost clear light amber (orange) in color with a small but lasting white head. In the nose, I get some moderate citrus, as well as some caramelized malts with some lightly nutty malts. Taste is relatively light bodied, with a moderate citrus and floral hop character. Some crystal malts- molasses, and lightly nutty malt body. Bitterness is moderate, lingers a bit and becomes a bit piney in the finish. This is a pretty solid easy drinking APA.

12 oz bottle purcahsed at Canalís Hainesport. I was actually going to bitch about where does this beer state "Two Brothers Pale Ale" and about it being brewed at Southern Tier and then I read the bottom of the six pack holder. For those of you who didnít buy this in a 6-pack it would seem that Phin from Southern Tier married Pete from Ellicottville Brewings sister-in-law or cousin, perhaps it was his landlords newspaper delivery boys babysitter, ah who the F cares. This beer poured a very thin bodied rust shaded amber with a small foamy whiteish head. Aroma is on the sweet side with notes of apricot, honey grahm crackers and floral hops. Thin bodied with tingly average carbonation. Flavor of grahm crackers, honey, grains, slight hops. Okay this is sessionable and nice but itís still ust an APA.
