3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a hazy golden yellow color with a half finger white foam head that quickly settles into a lasting ring. Spotty lacing left behind.
Floral, earth hop aroma with grass and pine notes countered by bread, biscuity malt and light fruit. Slightly resinous with soily hops followed by bread, apple, pear and pale malt notes.
Medium bodied with a dank, crisp hop bite that provides a strong bitterness that lingers over the sweeter notes and pale malt into a bone dry finish. Very earthy with soil like flavor along with grass and pine needle followed by bready yeast, light fruit and biscuit malt. Sweet hints of apple, pear and subtle alcohol provide a decent counter to the strong hop flavors. Pale malt backbone with bread, biscuit and cracker. Light and well balanced and while its nothing out of the ordinary, itís a decent, sessionable beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Local Cantina Clintonville, OH. Southern Tier Live is a rich golden mostly clear brew with a thin head of tiny white bubbles. Nose is a lot of citrus hops and perhaps a bit of tropical fruit as well. Body was a bit lively and thinner. Taste was a nice balance bite of hops with more of the citrus at the fore. A nice pale ale for sure.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Lots of lemon and orange on the nose, some pineapple and grapefruit, no malt to speak of. VERY hazy dark straw color thin white head, nice lacing for such a thin head. Surprisingly clean, sharp grain flavors. Somewhat understated hop character though it is nice. Citra hop type character, very citrusy character. Palate is a bit thin but drinkable and pairs well with the muted nature of the brew. Overall please donít call a 5.5% abv a ísessioní beer. Obviously a very well made beer, maybe age has diminished the hop character yet it is also simplistic. VERY clean character, drinkable. It is well crafted, very balanced but lacks hop or malt punch, sort of lingers in the middle where it fails to be special in any particular way.

Bottle bbe 05/2016. Hazy yellow color with a huge head that doesnít last long. Aroma of citrus, pine and some sweetness. Taste is mild bitterness and some citrus notes, well balanced with the light malty sweetness. Could be more intensive tastewise, smell is great.

Poured into a perfect pint.
3.75 A: Moderately hazed orange brown color. Two fingers of frothy/creamy off-white head. Retention is very good and lots of lacing is left. A few small floaties in there.
4.5 S: Lots of citrusy hoppiness in here. HUGE orange aroma with peach and mango underneath. Mild doughy yeastiness. Sweet neutral maltiness. This smells wonderful.
3.5 T: Unlike the nose, the taste isnít nearly as impressive. Just a mild citrusy hop flavor. Mild bitterness. Light neutral malts with light yeasty breadiness.
3.5 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Light creaminess with just a touch of chewiness. Not bad.
3.5 D: This started out so strong, but failed to pull it off with the taste.
