squidknuckle (22) - New Haven, Connecticut, USA - JUL 3, 2013
12oz bottle. Pours a misty pale gold with a persistent off-white foam. Citrusy, doughy, grassy aroma. Smooth, light, refreshing, and dry. So balanced. On a one-to-ten taste-intensity scale Iíd say -- hops 3.5, yeast 3, malt 2.5. Couldnít ask for much more out of a summer sipper.

From the bottle. Clear amber. Fine bubbled head. Thin and clingy. Nose is faint. Mild malty start across to a resin counter and a hint of orange in the long dry finish.

Bottle Light golden with a spritzy off-white head. No real lacing. Light grassy with some citrus hop aroma. Light bodied and crisp. Decent flavors and clean pale malt

Dacrza (738) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - DEC 3, 2015
DATE TASTED: December 3, 2015 ... GLASSWARE: Barley Creek pint... OCCASION: prepping for a good Friday a bit early on Thursday... APPEARANCE: hazy, busy, lively body that offers a mountain of cloud--puffy, white, with crags and nooks like a rock face...its resilience is noticeable...excellent half-finger head laces admirably into camo-like patterns....AROMA: bright punch of citrus--grapefruit and orange peel; the breadiness--as promised by the label--is appreciable... PALATE: a rather rounded, easy-drinking pale ale, with a smooth, undistinguished finish; a bit dry for a pale...light to medium-bodied... TASTE: a strange, lemony flavor pervades the citrus profile, with the malts wrestling for control over the experience... enough dough to mistake the drink for a something more British...worth noting the orange one more time... OVERALL: tough to say for a Southern Tier, but not an improvement over their original pale... applaud them for trying something new or different, but the hops are blanketed by malts and the hops are one-dimensional and soft.... not really what was hoped for...

corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 12, 2015
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.

Panzuriel (1627) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - NOV 6, 2015
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.

Hinez57 (224) - Clinton, Mississippi, USA - OCT 28, 2015
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.

impuritylaw (40) - Freibierg, GERMANY - OCT 24, 2015
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.

Gold, SRM 5, clear at the start, stable white head. Yeasty nose. Light body, smooth mouthfeel, good heat and carbonation, moderate flavor, long aftertaste. Bitter, dry, sharp but balanced acidity. Hoppy, fruity, yeasty. Not my style but nice length. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
