COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Neolithic humans evolved from nomadic hunters into a more settled agricultural society, changing life forever. The Ďfounderí crops they raised included wheat and barley. It is little surprise that the first examples of brewing appeared during this age. Brewers owe much to the epoch. Similarly, we thank our farmer friends of today for cultivating the ingredients the are responsible for the beers we now enjoy. Their laborious days spent ourdoors under the hot sun earn them respect, as well as a mark of distinction: the farmerís tan. Yes, the inevitable red and white hallmark of hard work.

Really just ended up seeming like a pils or a standard lager ala Sam Adams. Corn/grainy nose. Okay appearance nothing special, gold, decent head with minimal retention and lacing. Silky mouthfeel, nice body, hoppy presence.

Bottle shared by shigadeyo. Poured clear golden color with an average frothy white head that was lasting and produced good lacing. Good moderate grainy hop and sweet malt aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Nice drinkable beer.

Southern Tier Farmerís Tan is a clear, dense golden lager with a soft, dense, bubbly white head that has outstanding retention and lacing. It has an aroma of hay and grass, with a touch of bread and sweetness. Itís pretty full bodied and very smooth with a clean, dry finish. Itís well balanced with a green bitterness and a peppery note. Thereís something a little corny in there. This is not unlike a malt liquor. There is a warm rumble of alcohol in the finish as the green bitterness lingers. This wasnít really a great choice for a lawn mowing beer but it wasnít unpleasant.

Pour is a bright golden with a small white head. Aroma is nice with loades of dry malts with a touch of hops and alcohol. Flavor is a little less steallar. Lots of malt no hops but also no alcohol. Smells great then flavor turns into a regular pale lager real fast. Still it is light and does not have that malt liquor chemical thing going on.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 24, 2010
Pours gold with a lasting, white head. Smells of perfume, dry malt, floral notes, earthy. Tastes of caramel, spice, pepper, crisp, resiny finish.

halfonit (1228) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 23, 2010
On tap at Battleship Brewhouse. Has a dark golden color. Aroma is of hops, citrus, caramel, and some other fruityness. Flavor is very hop forward, with some citrus, earthiness, pine, and oak. Finish is full of citrusy hops. Very well done.

22 oz bomber from Spirits RB. Poured a clear thin light tangerine orange with an average sized white tight foamy head. Aroma of grains and citrus that started off with lots of hops but ad those fade more wet bread, alcohol and even a hint of cake batter emerges. The body has an overly lively feel about it that causes it to foam up once it passes your lips. A nice smooth finish with only a trace of the 9% ABV. Flavor is mostly grains and cereal with some alcohol coming out. Ahh the more I concentrate on this one the more let down I become.

17thfloor (2436) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 23, 2010
Bottle. Yikes, I wasnít so sure about dropping the $ for this after seeing some of the reviews. Pours a clear bright golden with a small fizzy sticky sudsy head. Aroma is lightly rich, corn, touch grassy and biscuity, hint of warming alcohol. First taste is actually quite pleasantly bitter and grassy, nice noble bitterness, nice wheat taste that seems to add a needed complexity, whereís the 9%, then it becomes just a bit rich and cloying, some warming alcohol but not really that noticeable, does taste just like an imperial pale. Medium bodied, the has sparkling carbonation and seems to get just a bit syrupy at times, still drinkable.

Nephilium (1498) - Ohio, USA - JUN 22, 2010
Slight grassy aroma, with a hint of pine in it. Pours a clear golden with a white quickly fading head, that leaves spotty lacing at best. Taste wise, thereís a touch of alcohol burn in this one, some grain notes, and a bitter finish. Itís drinkable, but far too expensive ($7) for the taste.
