Pint can. Hazy copper with a lasting half-inch of sticky foam. Big nose of fresh green herb, resin, earthy toffee, and smoky citrus. Flavor is less bold, but still a nice mix of the same flavors. Light-medium body is soft and dry, has medium carbonation, and is pretty dam sessionable.

Piney hops leaning more towards the malt side. Caramel and slight bread notes. A hoppy pale ale on the edge of IPA. Great beer especially when fresh.

16oz Can thanks to Fred! Boy! This beer sure is Pinie!. Nice and dry with a hopy middle and a nice Rye after taste. A very refreshing brew.

Southern Star Pine Belt Pale Ale has a very thick, foamy, creamy, cream-colored head, an opaque, brown-orange appearance, with lots of yeast chunks floating about, and a good amount of lacing left on the glass. The aroma is sweet, stinging, and bready. Flavor is of piney hops, bready malt, and sweetness. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy, and Southern Star Pine Belt Pale Ale finishes mostly dry, fairly refreshing, and decently drinkable. Overall, I really am enjoying this, and I consider it a most excellent beer. RJT

Big fat 16oz can courtesy of crajun from the Local Beer Swap Threeve. Thanks Kevin. Pours a hazed dark red brown amber with a huge white to beige head. Sweet soda malt, spicy hops, light citrus, malt thickens up and gets big and has a hint of oxidization. Medium bodied, spicy malt, a touch thinner than the nose would suggest. A touch of bitter toast and malt, soft hops, grapefruit and malt. Very slow finish with soft sticky malt. Decent enough.

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 17, 2012
16oz can. Good, smooth, soft lighter carbonation. Kind of creamy. More dry texture. Amber colored body. Totally hazy with lots of chunks of particles suspended in the body. Good creamy off-white head, with great retention. Leaves great, thick lace. Beautiful ale. Very nice piney resiny hop aroma. Little caramel malt. Kind of bready - malty. Light bitter, sweet taste. Definitely an above average pale ale. Kind of approaching IPA - territory. It is hard not to think of Dales Pale Ale here... that kind of brew

Golden amber in color, clear with a thin head. Super flavor and nice hops backing. This is a great beer.

16 oz can pours a cloudy dark amber with lasting off-white head and good lacing. Not much to smell. Aroma has caramel, toffee, and a little citrus and pine. Tastes sweet with a bitter almost sour finish. Medium body, and average carbonation. If someone just handed me a mug of this with no hints, I never would have guessed that was a pale ale.

A: Hazy amber color with a huge eggshell color head. Retention is awesome S: Lots of malty notes, not so much hoppy. Caramel, butterscotch, and a lingering sweetness. Hops are real subtle and earthy. in general, malty... T: Similar to the nose- malt forward, not really hoppy at all. Caramel, residual sugar, toffee. I really cant find any trace of hops...this cant be an old can either because the store just got them in. Mild bitterness, mainly a subtle trace of earthy hops. MF/D: Pretty viscous with a smooth creamy feel. The finish is of butterscotch Notes: More like an amber ale than a pale ale. Hops are hardly present, definitely malt dominant. If this was an amber ale I would have scored it higher. I do like it, but not to-style
