Poured from 16 oz can into a pint glass. She pours a beautiful copper with a small amount of head and carbonation. Lacing wraps the glass as the head fades and you sip on it. The smell is surprisingly light. Nothing really caught my attention. Very neutral smell. The taste is of an amazing ale, a bit of hops and pine. This to date is my favorite Southern Star beer. Absolutely delicious.

Poured from a 16 oz. can. Has a copper color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of malts, some pine. Taste is well balanced. Caramel malts up front, piney hops at the finish, easy drinking. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a smooth and solid beer.

A- Pours an orangey-golden color with thin finger-width head. Good lace down glass
S- heavy crystal malt aromas of bread crust and caramel. Honey as well. Citrusy hop aroma but takes a backseat to the malt.
T- bread, caramel, honey, slight orangepeel taste. Bitter hops on the back end.
M- light medium feel, juicy bitter finish.
O- not bad. I don't know if I'd seek this one out again.

Pours a clear copper color with a tight, quickly fading white head that leaves chunks of lacing.

Smells of toasted malts and some citrus hops.

Tastes of a pretty big malt backbone layered with some hops. Malts lead off with caramel, toasted bread, and a touch of fruitiness. This gives way to pine and citrus hops. Deinfitely leans towards the malty side of the spectrum. Finishes with a bit more bready malt.

Mouthfeel is medium with a smooth amount of carbonation.

Overall, this is pretty good, but don't expect a blast of hops.
