3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice aroma, subtle on the hops though... Possibly more malt than I would have liked. Palate is really chewy... Big on the dextrins... Taste is nice, but just not hoppy enough for me. In fact, the overwhelming taste was sweet. But this is something I find in all the southern tier beers. Could it just be an old bottle? Thatís what you get in oz unfortunately. Other than that, a nice beer...

bomber and I donít know how old this one is but it poured a murky orange color with white head that just lingered around for awhile. leaving nice lacing on the glass. the aroma medium malt and some strong citrus hop action. very refreshing. the flavor is damn good..medium malt backbone and some citrus and floral hops in the flavor. evenly balanced from front to back. another solid beer from southern tier.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from 12 oz. bottle.
Hazy, golden straw with 2-finger ivory head and excellent lacing.
Aroma of green tea, caramel and pungent hops.
Tastes sharply of pine resin and caramel with spice, fruit, citric and floral hops and grass. Starts bitter but amble malt sweetness quickly asserts itself.
Full body and high carbonation produce a very assertive mouthfeel.
This is a "big" beer in everything but the aroma.

Bottled sample. American Strong Ale could be my new favourite beer. Great blend of hops and citrus. Loved this one

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
If rust could look smooth with waves of golden highlights and penny copper hues, then this would be the pour of Southern Tierís Hoppe cascading down the bomber into my neat Oktoberfest mug. Too bad it stayed in the fridge, opened, for nearly a week before I had a chance to try it out. Nonetheless, the flavors are fairly intact enough for a decent rating. Nose of (almost burnt) biscuit with hints of caramel and almond. Musky citrus notes. Great bitter punch in the overall taste from grassy residue. Almond, again, hits the palate this time. Decent mouthfeel. Overall: Grassy, nutty, honey, past-prime-citrusy. Rebuy: Yes.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle with Pat. Pour is a golden orange color with sticky 2 finger white head. Aromas of oranges, biscuity malt, older hops, and pine. Taste is similiar to aroma with the bitter pine and orange citrus coming through the most. I think this one was on the shelf for a little too long or I dont like the hops they used.

Pours dark orange with a thin white head and nice lacing. Aroma is awesome caramel malts, juicy hops and pine. Taste is beautifully malty with a nice hop bite. This has been sitting for several months and itís still great.
