March Beer

Clearish amber with a smallish head, settling into an island of covering. Spritely carbonation. Props for the stylin label.

Smells like warm milk and honey. Or honey yogurt. Maybe some raisons. I'm dancing around the fact that it smells like Raisin Nut Brain. Which I dig.

Tastes smooth. Spiced fruits, a little bitterness in the background. Malty and lively from the carbonation, fairly long finish with a little heat from the alcohol.

Overall it's a very good choice to kick back with.

Poured into a Duvel glass.

Pours a clear amber copper color, near white fluffy head. Lots of carbonation and nice tight bubbles. Light thin layer of patchy lace remains. OK lace along the edges remain. Good looking color here. Pretty good looks.

Brew smells of spice and grassy hops, sweet caramel malts as well. Pretty good nose here.

Brew is very balanced in the mouthfeel; some subtle spice up front and a mellow malty middle. Creamy sweet caramel, grassy floral hops and maybe even some orange. Finishes a little sticky and a tad bit dry. Great balance and flavors here. Good stuff.

Wow - balanced and really sessionable. Very good stuff that is a party pleaser for sure. Spot on stuff here, really digging this one.

look: 2.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Cream soda/amber color with plenty of carb streams a-risin'. Minimal head from a topped-off pour. No significant lace effect.

Grassy hops with a mild acidity not unlike white cheddar. Pale grains and crabapple.

Tinny and musty. Opening woody acidity and finishing fizzy bitterness. Caramel malts are up-front, and a quaint tartness is all but missing. Off-kilter for the style. No yeast esters of prominence. Slight granny smith sour sting that's quickly cleansed with the toasted grains and some booze. Very unexceptional and down-letting.

Too fizzy. Body's okay. A little turning in the belly. Will need a big stout to settle myself up.

Had more hopes for Southampton on this one. Can't win 'em all.

A-very coppery for this style, I feel.

S-maltiness, some grassy and even a hint of coffee.

T-malt bomb!! no tartness which I was thinking I would get from this one.

M-medium bodied

Overall-not impressed and a little disappointed on this one. I usually love southampton too. :(

I will make this quick, but bottom line is I really like this cheap beer I found. A great deal at under $8 for a sixer. It is pretty looking with a great reddish hue, sweet and malty smelling and very refreshing and fruity notes of grapfruit and mango. I will be having many more of these. I am gaining more and more respect for Southampton. Gonna try their Grand Cru and Abt 12 soon. Mark my words.

Pours a clear amberish gold with a medium sized head. Smell is weak. Malty with some fruit. Big malty flavor. Toffee. Just a little toasty. Hoppy bitterness throughout. Just a little sweetness underneath rounds things out. Phenolic and earthy in the finish. Well carbonated and medium bodied. Pretty drinkable and overall a good beer.

A: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had a bright orange color and a cloudy consistency. There was absolutely no head or lacing to speak of.

S: Aroma was very muted, but had traces of fruit, malt, and some phenols.

T: Tasted of malt, orange, some mild spices, but little else. This beer is just thin and watery without much character. Not at all what you expect from the style.

M: A well-carbonated beer with a sharp, vibrant finish. Medium-bodied.

O: This beer does have a couple of decent qualities, but it fails in the flavor category.
