3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a nice dark gold colour, with medium head. Aroma is hoppy and dry, with hints of earthyness. Taste is dry with lots of maltyness and hoppyness, but dies away quite fast. A very tasty, enjoyable and drinkable beer pale ale.

6% bottle from Rakuten. It pours a clear gold with a decent fluffy head. A great fruity aroma of citrus/grapefruit. The flavor is a nice bold sweet malt, hints of pine with a dry citrus fruit finish. Very nice.

Bottle. Pours orange color with moderate head and lacing. Grassy, earthy aroma and taste. Decent but not one of ST's best by any stretch.

Beautiful tangerine pour with thin quickly dispersed head. Hops shine on the nose, resiny and pine up front with brief malt background. almost thin mouth feel that is crisp despite having been bottle conditioned. Drinkable and refreshing

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled 0,35L. Orange deep color, fraught and bubbly aspect, good head of discreet resistance. Very pleasant hop aroma, notes of resin, floral, citrus. Prickly body, little alcoholic impact, much flowery and hoppynes content, little notes of caramel and sweet start; decided and prolungate bitter smooth final.

Showed up at my local Thai place and they had this on tap. Couldn't believe it. First time I've seen Southern Tier in Memphis. Poured a slightly hazy golden color. Aroma of hops, grapefruit, very floral for a pale ale. Taste is really good too. Crisp and clean, hoppy with floral notes. Nice Pale Ale. I'll drink this again. So glad they had this on tap.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This pours a semi-cloudy, golden yellow color with a thin, off-white head. The scent is mild with hops mixed with hints of citrus. The taste is weaker than I would expect from Southern Tier. The texture is thin and the flavor is weak with just hints of wheat and grains. Not really much of a bitterness to it either. Granted I did get this after it was listed as “retired” so maybe it lost some flavor along the way.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle shared with Dutchdrebus and Joes. Hazy yellow color, quickly diminishing white head. Smell malts, old stale hops and a bit metallic. Taste malts, old hops, some hints of cardboard. Too bad, must have been an old bottle unfortunately. Hope to re-rateit fresh someday.
