3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled at WBF in Durham - poured a dark hazy golden color - aroma of hops, citrus and pine as you would expect. The taste was pretty typical of a standard APA as well. Nothing overly memorable from this ale.

Bitterness was a bit to low for my palate to call Southern Pale Ale "a true American Style" [Pale Ale]. Crisp beer nonetheless, enjoyed at the PTI airport before flying back to PHL.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at the brewpub on 2/2/08: Clear effervescent bronze color with a frothy-lacing stringy off-white head. Aroma of lightly toasty caramel malts and some earthy grapefruity hops. Body starts lightly pale malty sweet with grassy piny bittering hoppiness. Finishes crisp and quite drinkable. A good APA.

red colored beer with a hint of pine and a dose of caramel in the nose. Flavor does have some good pine bitterness to it. More than I expected from the nose. The finish is pretty clean with no annoying malt sweetness to ruin it.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Gold pour with a hint of red. A clinging off white head and lace. Light malt and a very nice lite hop aroma. Medium semi sweet malt evergreen bitter. Creamy mouthfeel with light foamy carbonation. Very nice lasting bitter. My favorite so far.

On tap at the brewpub. Amber in color, this has ample hop bitterness but also nice fruitiness in the finish.

The pour is clear deep yellow, with little to no head to speak of. Th aroma is sweet and citrusy hops. The flavor is very clean and light, the hops make give a nice clean crisp character. This is a good, easy drinking beer.

Pours a clear copper with a nice white head. Aroma of citrus hops and malts. Fairly sweet pale ale with a bit of a bitter hop finish. Not a bad American pale ale.
