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!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draft, sampler: it’s amber with just a tiny tiny trace of a head. Aromas are way better than the flavors, piney hops and a floral hint are nowhere to be found when I drink it. Bland, boring, beer.
