This beer pours a clear pale golden color with minimal head that disipated in a snap of a finger.

The smell is fruity and nutty.

The taste is nutty, cherry and of imitation vanilla and almond, with a alcohol zip.

It's smooth but with a alcohol zip slightly boozy.

Overall this beer is taste but not my favorite of the style.

12oz Inflatablechair brought over tonight... Thanks Sammy!! Cool and a new to me brew.

Pours a light orange with a short lasting white head... little lacing or retention.

The nose is off-putting .... immediately makes me think of malt extract... a bit perfumy that could be hops or spices, but the thick maltiness is overpowering.... Sam says "oxidized" his palate/nose is miles ahead of mine.

Flavor is no better... tastes like an unfermented homebrew experiment... I can detect/identify nothing that comes across as hops or spice... just tons of malt (extract) ..

Palate seems thick and a light carbonation that does nothing to scrub the flavors off the tongue...

The first time in a looong time that Sam and I haven't finished even half a bottle.


I don't think this was a bad or old bottle... I just believe it wasn't done well. If I am wrong, somebody please approach me and I will happily trade for a different bottle. Cheers, Toby.

A: Pours a rustic amber with a short head. Slightly chill hazed with effervescent carbonation.

N: Caramel, lemon, grass and hay.

T: Immediately get hit with clean caramel along with notes of lemon and toffee. This is followed by candy sugars and a hint of earth. Finishes somewhat musty with some hay and grassy noble hops.

M: Medium bodied, crisp, clean and refreshing.

O: Incredibly refreshing and easy drinking. Great for warmer weather.

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.

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.
