I poured this beer into a tulip glass. In the initial pour I had about two fingers of foam. The coloring on this beer was auburn.

There was a light smell of pine from the top of this beer. You can also get mild nuttiness from the malt.

This beer tastes like a stock English Pale Ale. It was a little unexpected. The pine in the nose falls off in the taste of the Deep South. This is a really mild beer. You do get some funkiness on this beer.

This was an easy drinker, except for the funk and some unusual bitterness at play.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass.

A - straw/dark golden in color, 2 inch head. some but not a lot of lacing

S - smells very hoppy, citrus and grapefruit. subtle malts as well

T - Not a whole lot here. the fruity hops come through and some malts but all in all the flavor is weak. smells better than it tastes. also get some metallic flavor towards the end.

First had: bottle at Riverside Market Cafe, Ft. Lauderdale, FL

I figured I'd might as well try this as I probably won't see Mississippi or any of their beers any time soon. Pretty much standard APA here. Poured into a Bell's shaker pint, a clearish, copper liquid with about a 1/2 inch of frothy white head that sank to a thin layer and left a bit of lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus and pine hops, pale bready malts. No surprises here, but certainly nothing bad about it. Similar taste, citrus pith, piney, leafy in the hop department, mildly bitter, solid sugary malt base, toasted grains. Medium body, moderately dry and crisp. Nothing that hasn't been done before, but a good basic pale ale overall.

Served from bottle into a sampler shaker. Poured golden yellow with a minimal white head. Maintained nice lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, mango, tropical fruit, and fruit hop. The flavor was of sweet malt, tropical fruit, fruit, tropical fruit hop, and mango. It had a light feel on the palate with medium carbonation. Overall this was a decent brew. This brew really had a lot of fruit going on here. While this might sound like a win-win, it was really all that was going on in this one. It just felt like it was missing something to keep your palate intrigued. It is worth trying for the fruited pale ale lover out there, but if you enjoy kick in the face pales, I wouldn’t go out of my way to seek this one out.

A: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had an amber color and a clear consistency. There was a small amount of foamy head that quickly dissipated. Very little lacing.

S: A somewhat muted aroma of hops, malt, and a hint of citrus.

T: Pretty much tasted like it smelled: Mild hops, a little malt in the finish, and a tinge of citrus as well. Not bad, but certainly could have used a bit more of a push.

M: A good amount of carbonation with a smooth finish. Light-bodied.

O: There are definitely worse APAs out there than this one, but there are better ones, too. Not undrinkable, but kind of forgettable.

This was a gift to me from Sam Knocken and I wanted to get it in while it is still fresh. The CANQuest (TM) must wait!

From the bottle: "American Pale Ale was first crafted by West Coast Brewers who drew inspiration from English and India Pale Ale styles. Americans are known for taking a good idea to the extreme. Southerners are known for taking extreme ideas and making them great."; "Some think the South is behind the fads. We aren't slow. We just take our time, use what we like and leave the rest behind. This is the sentiment behind Deep South Pale Ale: something bold and distinctive, a vibrant reflection of the culture and flavors unique to The Deep South."; "Deep South Pale Ale's dry hop aroma reminds you of a walk through southern pine forests on a warm summer day. The crisp malt character is balanced with the spicy aroma of hops to provide a smooth, refreshing finish. We broke away from published style guidelines and created our own style: Deep South Pale Ale."

My pour initially netted a finger-and-a-half of tawny head, but it quickly fell, leaving some sticky lacing in its wake. Color was a deep-gold with NE-quality clarity and Midas and Croesus were envious. Nose was indeed redolent with pine hops, but I will have to take their word for it on what "southern pine forests on a warm summer day" smell like. Mouthfeel was medium but the taste seemed kind of saturated with dry hops. My tongue felt like it had been dusted with hops by the time that I swallowed. Finish was dry, but it just did not seem to be my cup of tea.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a standard pint.

A: Dark golden hue. Pours a slight, foamy, white head. Settles quickly, leaving a sporadic blanket of foam. Substantial beer ring lacing.

S: Italian bread with a little basil, pine nuts, and pecan shells.

T: Pine, wood, and pecan shells.

M: Light, crisp, and hoppy; but hearty and full.

D: Sip and enjoy or pound relentlessly.

Atmosphere is good. Nice appearance including solid foamy head, and some solid lacing. Nose is hoppy, and spicy bread. Hoppy, woody, and full flavored. Overall, this is a really good quaff.
