Originally rated on 20101120.
Pours copper color with a medium sized head. Aroma of pine needles, hops, fruits and orange zest. Flavor of fruits, caramel malts, grass and resiny hops.
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. jhgrantjr (478) - Tennessee, USA - FEB 14, 2013
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.

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.

Bottle from Cotteridge Wines; clear amber pour, tiny white head, grapefruit hop aroma, piney hop taste with grapefruit sweet malts, sticky resinous mouth feel. Benzai (16682) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - DEC 6, 2012
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. DutchDrebus (6191) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - DEC 6, 2012

Hazy gold beer. Little white head. Crisp dry palate, a carbonated snap. Fresh mandarin with traces of peach and mango. Dry finish. Mildly bitter aftertaste. A cracker of a fresh pale ale.
(Bottle) Pours dark golden with a small head. The aroma holds orange peel, grapefruit juice, and some “green”, herbal and grassy notes. Undertones of toast, light bread, light vanilla, touch of mandelkubb and a whisper of honey. The flavour is light sweet, light to medium bitter and tiny acidic. Citric, herbal hoppy and subtle malty. The mouthfeel is clean with light carbonation. Grapefruity, woodsy and light candy-like finish. Light to medium bodied.
