1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Can from pikapp327. Lighter orange pour with a small white head. Aroma is bland, vaguely, tangy, and mint? Taste is buttery, light citrus, and off grain. Awkward finish.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours brown, like the color of iced tea, with a small off-tan fizz. Smells mildly fruity with a strong caramel, toffee malt base. Taste is less than the aroma, hints of fruit and toffee, but tastes a little off. Medium-bodied with a slick texture and decent mouth-carbonation, Southern Star Le Mort Vivant finishes with a cloying, herbal sort of aftertaste.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Looks like apple juice with a splash of cranberry. A bit of off-white head early on but quickly fades. Aroma is fruity and earthy. Very sweet and a little effervescent on the tongue.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Amber bright color. Light beige colored head. Clear. The smell is fruity esters, play dough, bready. Sort of off, reminds me of some homebrews that I did not think we’re overly successful. Getting a little better as it warms. Fruit taste, coastal straw, bread, and yeast.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Cloudy amber-reddish color with thin small-bubbled head. Wheat nose with some wet leaves thrown in. Subtle spices. Medium bodied mouthfeel with oily finish. Lacks depth of flavors, with only light malt and some sweetness as the main profile.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Dark pour, fruit salad taste with some malt and hay thrown. Kind of a confusing blend of tastes, yet somehow it works. Decent.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very odd dull amber pour with very little head. Lots of banana aroma and flavor - grains and caramel. Some spices but overall thin and just decent.
