Golden amber in color, clear with a thin head. Super flavor and nice hops backing. This is a great beer.
Surprisingly smooth and just was exactly I thought a pale ale should be. I liked it

Originally rated on 12/22/08. The aroma reminded me of pineapple sherbert, faint hints of grapefruit and pine. The body was a deep amber- copper color with ample carbonation, decent head that left good lace. The flavor was a slight disappointment considering the aroma, it started with the grapefruit bitterness which quickly faded, very, very small malt presence .

Pours a hazy amber with a slight white head which dissipates quickly......aroma of touch of pine, kind of subdued.....taste is touch earthy, slight pine, medium mouthfeel, nice bittering, crisp finish.....a fair pale, well built. klaing (282) - Florida, USA - MAY 30, 2016
Cloudy orange with thin head. Fine carbonation. Lots of toffee and orange, a little thicker than most. Pine hopping and alcohol very up front as well. Bit over the top for a pale.

Can in LA - picked up in NOLA. Pours unclear orange-gold with a creamy head. The nose holds crackery malts, light pine, ripe orange. Medium sweet flavour with more crackers, white grape, graham cracker, pale grains, bread, melon, orange. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. More faded hops in the finish, some grass and pine, lots more crackery charter, ripe and jammy citrus. Definitely faded.

Undated 12 oz. can into a tulip.
A: Deep orange pour with a short, fading head of fine bubbles. Looks hazy and thick.
S: Mildly sweet pine/spruce scent with orange and honey notes.
T: Bitter orange and pine suggesting English ales. Malty and a bit roasty but not exactly sweet. Well balanced flavor.
M: Medium heavy body with average level of carbonation fighting through.
O: Pretty good though a bit stronger than I prefer in a go-to pale. Worth having. JPDIPSO (6257) - Wauwatosa, USA - JUL 27, 2015
Odd the first can was fine, but the last three have all been gushers. At least this last one I was ready with it held over the waste basket. Murky dark amber color. Of course a taller head, but it diminishes rather quickly and leave a ring and fairly dense island of foam in the surface and a nice lace trail. Quite sweet in aroma, with brown sugar, caramelized sugar, toasted malt; citric hops that remind me of oranges placed on the grill, and some aromatic woods. Some interesting things, but not overly enticing. Sweet caramel, toasted marshmallows and grains in the flavors. Light citrus courses throughout. Light brown sugar and lightly toasted malt return in the finish and linger. This one is better if you don’t think about it too much. 2/10 BeerdedDave (1850) - Beckley, USA - JUL 16, 2015
slightly cloudy amber color;a very light pale ale; bready, semi-sweet malt aroma with mild piney hops; light toasted malt with bitter, piney hops, but not a lot of character; rather bland GreatDane1632 (1169) - North Dakota, USA - JUL 11, 2015
Rated based on notes taken 22 Aug 2014 -- My favorite of the Southern Star brews. Great Piney flavor. Prefect name. dfinney23 (3394) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUN 18, 2015
Best looking beer I’ve had in weeks and pretty damn tasty, too. Tastes like caramel apples in an evergreen forest. More like caramel pine cones, maybe. Caramel bitter orange?
