3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle (Southern PA) via trade with ucusty - Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a one finger thick off white head. Very light spotty lacing. Aroma is herbal hops and a touch of veggie stew. Doesn’t smell like an APA. Flavor is toasted caramel malt with some hops mixed in for balance. Medium body. No unpleasant lingering aftertaste. Worth a try. I love trying new locals. Thanks david.

Pours clear dark gold with disappearing white head. Aroma of hops and grain. Taste is not as hoppy as many pales. Mouth is carbonated and crisp. Not a great pale ale.

12 oz bottle; poured a clear orange, amber. Aroma of toasted malt and biscuit, with some light citrus and wheat. Taste was dominated by biscuit and bread; however there was a solid citrus/grass hop presence. Palate had hints of wateriness. Overall it was about average for the style.

Tap. Light amber-orange pour, white head. Aroma of wheat and Clementine. Flavor of light malt. Quite drinkable. Bottles are occasionally skunky.

Natty Greenes SUTHUN Pale Ale. Half-decent, but it’s hard to make a pale ale stand out these days. It’s gotta be good, because there is a lot of competition. OK but not rebuyable.

Bottle that Daniel gave me. Not bad, really. Pours orange color with a white head. Fairly hoppy smelling and plenty of pine to go with it. Smooth and refreshing as well. Would be nice on a summers day, I think. Not outstanding, but not bad either.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle thanks to badnloose. Pours a slightly dark amber color. Small white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is hoppy, with notes of pine and citrus. Flavor is citrus, with some floral notes. I really liked this one as it’s a very solid APA.

Bottled as Natty Greene’s Southern Pale Ale. Lightly sweetish, grassy aroma with strong pretzel overtones, light citrus, and a touch of pine. Hops transport me to a brewpub. Clear orange pour with a soapy white head. Taste is citrus, bready, pretzel, and grass; dries out deliciously to a pale malt and pretzel aftertaste. Deft kick of tangerine. Decent hop character here, just the right amount of sweetness with low levels of bitterness. Feel is a bit soapy, but has a nice medium body for sessions. On the whole, a pleasure.
