2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 ounce bottle. Pours a hazy orange color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma has grassy, leafy and earthy hops with some pale malts. The taste has citrus hops with a resiny bitter finish. Fairly grassy with some pale malts as well. Medium bodied. Pretty average pale ale.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma is slight pine and bread. Pours lite golden with thin head. Taste has a metallic component to it, with a floral overtone. Finish shows some rye like grains with resin-like hops. All in all not bad, but wouldn’t necessarily search it out again.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A: The beer pours a golden amber color with a small white head.
S: Lightly hoppy on the aroma with a hop profile comprised mostly of citrus peel and grass. Otherwise, it’s quite sweet with lots of toffee and bread malt aromas. Maybe just a light floral hop note.
T: Not the most pleasant flavor. It begins with stale bread, a touch of metal, and cardboard. A rather light floral hop note with sweet malt/bread and some fruity yeast esters. Hints of grass and a very mild bitterness.
M: Medium in body with medium to low carbonation.
O: My first Mississippi beer was a disappointing one. Decent aroma, but below average flavor.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Thanks to my secret santa for this one in my box. Pours clear yellow-orange with a white receding head. Nose is malt, light floral hops and polite citrus hops. Flavor is similar with the malt leading the charge and the floral and citrus qualities excusing themselves politely to the rear. A genteel beer that has a light body and some fizz to it.

Clear golden-orange with a small off-white head. Aroma of straw, citrus, soap, and must. The taste bears little hop presence. It’s mostly pale malt with some hop accents. Body is medium. Ok.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle. Rating #63. Light golden appearance with a pretty aggressive fluffy white head that leaves a decent bit of lacing as it goes down. Picking up a bit of lemony citrus along with the wheat which seems to give it a slight doughy aroma, not too bad. Light bitterness along with more lemon they gives it an acidicness that can be felt going down the back of the throat. Pretty good little beer, it would be nice sitting outside while watch the planes takeoff and land across the street. (1594)

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance: orange and golds clear as morning sunrise. Tufts of amber along the side mingle with a soft pithy head which fades into a blotchy blanket. Swirls with loose bubbly lace and a bit more head, but overall no major change.
Nose: peaches, apricots with an overall freshly picked fruit essence, first with the fleshy juicy meats then the skins for pleasant bitterness. Grass in the back along with hay stalks and straw. A bit refreshing but simple. Tangerine wafts on by.
Palate: clean and sweet with a subtle lingering bitterness in the back of my throat. Grassy and earthy in the finish; green. Peach and nectarine juicy nectars in the front; sticky lips. Peach skins mingle with mild bitterness which leads into the finish.
Final Thoughts: overall not too shabby. A good session quaffer with just enough fruity sweetness and just enough dry bitterness to keep these tastebuds happy.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Reddish orange, with a thin ring of foam. Nice aroma of citrus - I’m gonna say grapefruit. Flavor is fairly hop forward, as well. Some citrus, some pine, with some caramel in the background. Perhaps a little bit of a stale note as it warms. This is the type of beer that is good right after work when you just want something to take the edge off the day and not really have to think about too much.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours out a huge head, settles after a bit. A golden color. A sweet caramel and yeasty nose with some light fruity hops. The flavor is bitter odd hop flavors, some dry malts, something is off here, almost like a sweet bready Belgian yeast strain gone wrong, something akin to dirtiness. Very bitter and odd. Perhaps bottling issues, I’ll re-rate it again someday.
