16oz can poured into a shaker. Pours a clear, dark burnt orange with a half finger of thick white head. Aroma of sweet citrus and pine with a good dose of caramel. Taste is light bitter. Dank pine and citrus hops with some grapefruit and caramel. Medium bodied with a somewhat thin texture. Lively carbonation and a very long finish. Overall, pretty good. I would gladly drink this again.

The aroma is a strong pine fragrance. Pours a hazzy amber with a frothy dissapating white head and nice lacing. The taste is citrusy/piney/hoppy flavor initially followed by a bready finish and grainy aftertaste. Medium body and medium carbonation. Overall, I liked this beer. A good summer time brew.

This is pretty bad. Tastes like a really cheap beer with lots of stale hops added. Thanks steph.

rubbishystuff (1845) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 6, 2012
Hazy dark orange look. Big piney hop aroma and flavor. A little herbalness to the hops too. Slightly burn caramel maltiness. Mouthfeel strange at end of sip. Sort of all over the place both a bold hoppy pale ale but also flavors that are all over the place. Serving: Can

nearbeer (3724) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 15, 2012
Pint can. Hazy copper with a lasting half-inch of sticky foam. Big nose of fresh green herb, resin, earthy toffee, and smoky citrus. Flavor is less bold, but still a nice mix of the same flavors. Light-medium body is soft and dry, has medium carbonation, and is pretty dam sessionable.

jeremy2027 (1) - Texas, USA - NOV 14, 2012 does not count
Piney hops leaning more towards the malt side. Caramel and slight bread notes. A hoppy pale ale on the edge of IPA. Great beer especially when fresh.

Southern Star Pine Belt Pale Ale has a very thick, foamy, creamy, cream-colored head, an opaque, brown-orange appearance, with lots of yeast chunks floating about, and a good amount of lacing left on the glass. The aroma is sweet, stinging, and bready. Flavor is of piney hops, bready malt, and sweetness. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy, and Southern Star Pine Belt Pale Ale finishes mostly dry, fairly refreshing, and decently drinkable. Overall, I really am enjoying this, and I consider it a most excellent beer. RJT

Big fat 16oz can courtesy of crajun from the Local Beer Swap Threeve. Thanks Kevin. Pours a hazed dark red brown amber with a huge white to beige head. Sweet soda malt, spicy hops, light citrus, malt thickens up and gets big and has a hint of oxidization. Medium bodied, spicy malt, a touch thinner than the nose would suggest. A touch of bitter toast and malt, soft hops, grapefruit and malt. Very slow finish with soft sticky malt. Decent enough.
