Appearance: this beer pours with a very large white head that takes a while to pour down, the beer is a slightly hazy pale gold color, head is very dense Aroma: pale malt, perhaps some sweet corn Taste: very pale grain, has a small bitterness to it, faint corn sweetness Palate: very light mouthfeel, average carbonation, minimal bitter aftertaste Overall: I do pick up some corn in this beer but the relatively bitter finish for this style is nice, easily sessionable like the label says ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Golden with a thin head and a malty nose. Well-carbonated with a medium mouthfeel followed by a lemony, bready, mildly hoppy finish.

Great Raft Southern Drawl has a thick, froathy, white head, and a hazy, somewhat bubbly, straw appearance, with heavy lacing left behind. The aroma is of sweetness (white or cream cheese cake icing), white bread, and grass. Taste is of those elements with barley malt and mild bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium and quite slick. Great Raft Southern Drawl finishes crisp and refreshing. RJT

At Markey’s, New Orleans tap: The draft handle said it was this beer, so I will just assume that it was. In any case, it poured golden with a white head. Aroma is lightly grassy and fruity. Taste is bittersweet. Like everything else that I had on my first day in New Orleans, it was drinkable, but not so much memorable.

Good, but as in all great raft beers, you're going to have to fight through a thick Forrest of hops to find that southern beer taste you know and love. If you're a fan of hops, you'll fall in love. If you're not, try it still. But be warned.

Can via trade. Can gushed upon opening, and I had to struggle to get a couple oz of liquid into a glass before the foam overtook everything. Even when sipping, the carbonation bubbles filled my mouth and dominated all other senses. Strange stuff. Kind of a grassy, mildly citrusy hopped pils. Okay.

Travlr (15065) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 26, 2014
Draft at Churchkey. Extra pale yellow color, massive fluffy white head, solid lacing. Aroma of white pepper and hay. Taste is bittersweet and fruity, easy drinking.

jbruner (2852) - Athens, Georgia, USA - AUG 5, 2014
From the can at Beer Camp Across America southeast. Pours a slightly hazy golden yellow with bubbly white head. Aroma and taste go toward the pils malt and crisp yeast esters, back end of grassy citrus hops. Good carbonation, clean and easy, not bad.

DrewFace (944) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - JUN 22, 2014
Can pours a fairly hazy pale straw yellow color with large white head. Pale pils malt aroma, light citrus hop character, clean. Crisp, pale malt, light hop flavor - citrusy and piney, moderate bitterness, fairly clean tasting overall.
