Depot Street Velocipede Pale
Pint on tap. Mostly clear, golden amber with a disc of foam. Nose is evergreen, caramel and citrus zest. Tastes of resin, toast, honey and citrus zest. Light-medium body has medium carbonation and seems near to IPA territory in its dryness. Pretty tasty.

Depot Street Loose Caboose Lager
First beer back in America. And true German style. Not to bad malty with a bit more hop bite but still sweeter and happier than a basic lager. Nice job. This could hold up in Germany. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Depot Street Southbound Scottish Ale
"courtesy of bluesandbarbq - nice looking cloudy ruby brown ale. smoke in the aroma with some fruity maltiness. smooth body as well, but the flavor was a bit of a hybrid of styles, although i’d guess unintentionally. the fruitiness from the malt was cool, but there was the (sometimes present in scottish ales) lemony astringency that took away from the flavor of the peet and smoke. the aftertaste was both scottish ale and a weak attempt at a sour. possibly oxidized?? i’ve had occasional bottles of Sacsquatch & Kilt Lifter’s that had a similar aspect as well-but never on tap."

Depot Street Depot Express Pale Ale
the style and part of the name say Pale, but the brewer’s description and the bottle say Amber. light amber color with a nicely balanced aroma of fruity malt, nuts, and hops. a smooth easy drinking amber. not complicated, but pleasant in every aspect. "

Depot Street Roundabout Rye Stout
"thanks Lou. beer #1 of the giant box! lots of suds here. it headed up two inches, but i turned my back, and when i came back, it was an inch or so above the glass and spilling over. a little oxygen? pretty dark, though a thinner stout. nice aromas of roasted grain, molasses, and the slightest hint of rye and like they say, astringency. i wanted more rye...i didn’t really get any in the flavor. overall, a decent dry stout."

A nice relatively easy-drinking IPA, pours a very attractive pale ruby appearance with good lacing, could pass for an amber ale based on looks. Smell is fresh and features both the piney hop and malty notes. The flavor itself is a lighter-bodied west coast hoppiness with a thin malty background. Hint of caramel present. Toasty and tasty, although it seems there is some off-flavors in the finish. Bitterness is a bit sticky. Still pretty good overall, and it's lighter weight makes it more sessionable. Not sure if I'd drink this again, but I'm glad I tried it. Depot Street brewing is on the right track.

Depot Street Roundabout Rye Stout
My introduction to Tennessee micro-brewing. This brew offers a unique combination, traditional coffee and dark chocolate stout flavors with a rye malty tang. Pours from the bottle a brown/ black color with some white head, average appearance. Aroma of roasted malt, average. Good distinctive flavor overall, enjoyable, medium mouthfeel, dryer finish. As I've never seen a rye stout before, I would drink this again as a bit of a novelty offering. A good introduction to Depot Street brewing.

Seems like more of a pale than an IPA. The hops don’t seem to fresh. The finish is dull and everything tastes muted.
