2.99/5 rDev -19.2%
Parish South Coast has a thick, off-white head (with a subtle red tint), a hazy, bubbly, rust-read appearance, and significant lacing rings left on the glass. Aroma is faint, but one can detect a slight sweetness and tannic note. Taste is not as faint, but it's still not bold, by any means; sweet bread crust and a low hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium and slick, and Parish South Coast finishes mostly dry, refreshing, and ultra-drinkable. They tout its sessionability, and I can see that, although, at 5.1%, one should use caution. Overall, this is worth a try.

3.73/5 rDev +0.8%
A: Pours a clear amber with a creamy off-white head.
S: Aromas of caramel, cream, toffee, honey roasted nuts, grass, and lemony hops are present on the nose.
T: Relatively restrained notes of caramel, cream, toffee, herbs, honey roasted nuts, apricot, dark bread, lemon, and bitter orange wash across the palate. The finish is smooth and integrated with fleeting sensations of orange, apricot, grass, herbs, caramel, and cream.
M: On the lighter side of medium in terms of body and considerably slicker than I normally prefer my amber ales to be. Carbonation, however, provides balance-it is nicely crisp without being too forceful or distracting.
O: This is a respectable enough amber/red ale. I can appreciate the fact that it is considerably smoother than many contemporary American amber/red ales, lacking the turbulence and moderately intense hop bitterness that has come to be associated with the style. Still, at 5.1% abv labeling this as a session ale is more than a bit of a stretch, though I could easily see myself having a couple of these on a hot evening. In the end, this one is worth trying at least once for fans of the style.
