On tap @ Southend. Goldenrod colored beer with a white head. Probably one of the more palatable offerings here, but the kind of beer I really can’t stand. Flawed, overly bitter and grassy pale ale. Some bread, caramel sweetness, and burnt popcorn. Unnecessarily bitter. Mild, stale hop flavor. No thanks.

It poured an amber color with a white head. The aroma was of pale malts and some floral hops. The taste was of citrus, floral hops and pale malts.

Sampled a pint of this pale ale while on a delightful dinner date at the Southend brewery/restaurant in Charleston. While I enjoyed the ambiance and feel of this establishment, and the food we had for our meal was excellent, I thought this beer was only decent, nothing exceptional. Presented well with a nice copper color with white head, good lacing, also a fresh grassy and light citrus hoppy aroma. On the other hand, the flavor was relatively weak and the palate a bit thin. The flavor profile definitely fit the American pale ale style, featured a standard citrus hop and caramel malt balance, and if I recall correctly finished bitter and dry. This was the only Southend brew I sampled that evening, so I can’t compare to or vouch for their other offerings, but I plan to try something different next time I’m there. On that note, though I don’t recommend this particular beer, I do strongly recommend the restaurant overall! Cool three story antique building in a great location only two blocks from the Charleston waterfront!

UPDATED: DEC 8, 2012
Location: Draft at the Brewpub, 12/7/12
Aroma: This one has a light hop nose, with some citrus, caramel, and a little chalk
Appearance: It pours a clear orange-amber, with a small head and heavy lace
Flavor: The flavor is light sweet, similar to the nose, and with a medium bitterness
Palate: it has a pretty decent feel, its on the creamy side, with a soft carbonation, and a dry finish
Alright, one of the better ones here, but that isn’t a huge compliment. I cow
D drink it again over plenty of beer, but if this is the only hoppy thing on the menu I’m certainly not impressed.
