3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2014 (12/2014) This years version is less complex then my original tasting - could be late in its freshness cycle. Nice ale. Mildly aromatic. Pale clear amber. Refreshing crisp bitter on a solid malt body. Some nuance - taste starts with balanced interplay between malt sweet and hop bitter with the bitter winning out in the finish. Still good, just not as dramatic.
(11/2012 - 3.9) Beers like this make me like hops. Nice pour, brief, shallow, off-white head. Warm amber-gold in color - very close to the label color. The Aroma - one of the more complex and pleasing hop aromas I?ve had. The Taste - hop forward, but married to a malt background, very integrated, nicely done. It starts as if it?s going with that overused banana taste and then curves into an elegant, slightly peppery ginger zone. This is one to look for.

Botte. Pours a clear orange color with a thin tan head. Strong, malty aroma with a light hop presence. Caramel malt in the flavor. Light, dry hoppy notes. Pretty solid brew. Southern Tier never disappoints.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear dark amber color, persistent 1/2" white head, streaks of lace. Standard aroma of malt and hops, but pleasing. Taste is solid malt with some toffee that grows smoothly through the swallow to a finish that has noticeable hops, but not the kind to block out everything else. I’d put this brew right beside Fuller’s. Well done! (and a surprise, since I was expecting spices and pumpkin).
