COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Medium bodied deep golden ale with distinctive bitter character and hoppy, piney-citrus finish...a true American style.

Pours a mostly translucent golden amber with a small bubbly off white head. Aroma of floral and citrusy hops and just a touch of caramel. Some nutty/bready malt as well. Flavor of grapefruit, floral and other citrusy hop notes. Malt is minimal but there. Some caramel notes and a touch of nuts. Moderate bitterness for a pale ale. Crisp and refreshing. A solid and dry pale ale.

UPDATED: OCT 30, 2011 Bottle. Crystal clear golden color, slightly darker than a standard American lager. Medium white head sits around through the whole beer. Very fresh aroma of grain and a touch of hops. Flavor starts with some hop bite, then a thinly sweet body, and a sharp hop finish. I enjoyed the hopping of this well enough for a PA, but the malt base seemed a bit off and too thin. RERATE: After having an extremely fresh bottle, I’d say it’s over-the-top grassy, juicy hops for a pale ale. Still not a great malt base and the balance is off, but when fresh, it works as a hop fix without melting the tastebuds.

Tap at Natty. Pours a medium to deep copper.gold with a decent head. Aroma is buttery- diacetyl bomb- more of an english PA light biscuit and toast. Flavor is mod sweet toasty malts, biscuit, lots of butter, floral and grassy hops. Meh.

TheBeerGod (5249) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - OCT 17, 2009
Draft at WBF Durham. Amber bodied. Short white head. Nose is citrusy hops, light caramel backbone, sweet malt and light pine. Taste is more pine and citrus with sweet malts, chewy caramel and pleasant hop bitterness. Body is medium with soft carbonation and light lingering bitterness. Ends with more caramel, citrus oils, piney hops and malt notes. Nothing extraordinary, but done well enough.

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.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUN 14, 2009
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.

decaturstevo (5015) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - FEB 12, 2009
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.
