3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, labeled as Deep South Pale Ale. Pours golden-amber with a massive head of bright white foam. Not much of an aroma. This drinks with a unique character ... this is a fairly "normal," well made craft ale ... but there’s almost a pumpkin-y spiciness lingering in the background ... can’t quite place it. I’d drink more. (#5035, 5/25/2013)

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle poured into a small plastic cup in my hotel room. Nice pale amber with a persistent white head. Aroma is lightly grassy and citrusy, but also with a good deal of cereal and cardboard. Taste is assertively malty with just a slight hop bite. Easy drinking, but not great.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
a nice and fruity brew with sugary and syrupy flavors of peach and a hint of apricot. the beer has more than enough malt and bitter hop profile in grapefruit to keep it nice and beery. frothy and complex i found this to be a perfectly charming pale ale strong enough to be a good ipa. exactly what one who knows would hope for in a Southern brew.
