4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pint on tap, and several 12 oz bottles. Lightly hazy orange-golden with a creamy disc of foam. Aroma is fresh orange, grapefruit, toast, resin and a hint of dank herb. Taste is a great blend of the same. Light-medium body is a bit too fizzy, finishes dry and is very sessionable.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Southern Tierís first foray into bottle conditioning. Lets see what happens.
Pours a slightly cloudy orange with a white head that has some good retention and lacing. Aromas of citrus and some dirty feet. Taste is muted hops, although yes, they are citrus and not pine, some pretty sweet malt in there and some lasting bitterness. Medium to high carbonation, average mouthfeel. Pretty damn good.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Picked up a six pack at the new Village Beer Merchant in Buffalo. Pours a not quite see thru amber colour, fluffy white head, lots of spotty lace. Nose is floral tropical hop, and sweet malts. Tastes bitter, malty, a bit of citrus zest. They never disappoint.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Nose is brilliant right out of the neck, dazzling orange peel, dank wood and woodsy pine, light floral character, tons of juicy citrus, grapefruit even leaning tropical, mango, pineapple, lychee, some caramel. Lightly hazy but bright yellow, soapy white head. Taste is bone-dry and stripping, light bitterness with a thin malt body that manages to hint at bread by the end. The aromatics are just killer, but thereís no base to support them; would like more bitterness, more caramel or even some crystal (a first!). If theyíre going away from tradition, then the yeast has to do more than itís doing here. Killer hop profile, though!

This pours a cloudy, golden yellow color with a foamy, beige head. There is a decent amount of citrus and hops in the aroma. This is perhaps a little more watery than I was expecting but it still delivers a great pale ale flavor. Drinks very smoothing making it a great summer beer that doesnít taste like water. Finishes a little sweet and malty, pretty unique stuff.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a bottle into glass. Hazy orange Amber pour with a foamy white head that retains well. Smells like lemon, hops, some sweet citrus. Taste is hoppy and citrusy. Lemon, malty finish. Medium smooth carbonation. Medium length semi bitter finish.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Nice lemon hop sharp smell. Cloudy yellah. Taste is rather astringent. Good sizzle saves this stuff. From a bottle. Some fruit in there as the session continues. Ends with a crackle.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a darker golden cloudy pour with lots of floaties and a minimal head. Smell and taste is bright citrus, a little tropical. Very warm weather friendly, extremely sessionable for a hoppy brew. Just one of the better pale ales I have ever had.
