For the style itís not bad. A little thin but very clean. Good to drink when itís hot out but other than that, average.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance: Itís a slightly hazy orange color with about a finger of soapy white head.
Aroma: Thereís a little bit of a wheaty earthiness to it, but it isnít a smell that knocks me back. Some hops, but not much.
Taste: The flavor falls into a grey for me because of the fact that Southern Tier is billing it as a ďpale wheat ale.Ē Unfortunately, I donít get much of the American wheat beer style beyond a touch of a spiciness mixed with some fresh cut grass. I also donít get too much hops in the palate, either.
Overall: My problem with this beer is that there isnít really anything about it that makes me crave it at all. It is between two styles, and Iím not sure that it is adequately capturing either of the parts of each that I enjoy. By no means is this a bad beer, but I guess itís a hybrid that doesnít quite bring anything beyond the sum of its parts.

Poured a clear golden color with a thick and frothy white head. Aroma is pretty faint but I caught lemon, grass, caramel, and not much else. Taste is lemon, grass, honey, orange, and a sweet/sour finish.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a hazy golden straw color with a thin white head. Aroma of burnt grains, sweet malts, and hints of citrus. Taste very light and refreshing. Earthy, dirt, leaves, caramel, roasted malts and barley. A nice balance between malts and the subtle hoppiness on the back bone. Very enjoyable. One of the only Pale Aleís I have liked.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Many of the low ABV ST beers have hit my market, and this was the more disappointing of the ones Iíve had. The aroma is grassy and sweet orange, starts off promising but has a flavor that is like a wrongly soured banana that is hard for me to get past. The crisp hoppy finish is a nice redeeming note that saves it from being a total miss for me. Take this with a grain of salt as Iíve had few in this style I really like.
