Due South is a local place that brews a good selection. The caramel cream ale and their IPAs are their go-tos, and not being a huge fan of IPAs, I went with the caramel cream. It was excellent. Great balance of vanilla and caramel and just the right amount of hops(minimal) for this beer. Mixed with their Honey Wheat it was even better. My only criticism, if you can really call it that, is that it does not seem to stay carbonated well in a growler. Recently, Due South released one of their IPAs in cans, and I am hoping the Caramel Cream follows suit. Until then, if you are in the Boynton Beach area, this place is definetly worth the trip.

Poured into a "Due South Brewing Co." pint glass produced small head for this dark amber beer. Smell was vanilla and caramel. Taste was vanilla, caramel and malt. Reminded me of a good Oktoberfest with hints of vanilla and caramel. Not much hop flavor. MF was medium with low carbonation. Very tasty on its own or with the ribs that I was enjoying. Had another as it's one of the better brews I've had lately. I may stop by the brewery as it's close to where I live. I'll definitely look for this again as it was smooth and tasty.

Growler from a recent trip to Due South. Really like that they use the jar bottles but with a rust proof, hard plastic screw cap.

Pours well, throwing up a nice head. This beer shines a wicked ruby color, clear with no sediment visible. Lacing wraps the glass.

Aroma of caramel candies and vanilla creamsickle. A lot of sweetness in the aroma with no hop presence. Some bready grains come through as well. Not complex, but very welcoming aroma.

Flavor is subtle and well balanced. Vanilla, caramel, cracker, very little bitterness in the finish. Very drinkable and sweet enough to cure a craving.

Carbonation is soft-medium. Body is medium, emphasizing the sweetness.

Absolutely love this beer. I could pound 30 of these like nothing (but I wont). Taste is awesome, mouthfeel is great. Nothing too fancy about it but it's a great beer to have while you're out with friends.

I can't wait to get out to the brewery and try it from the source!

From tap to taster glass at Due South tasting room on 6/2/12
*From notes

A: Clean ruby amber. Quite dark for a cream ale. A 1.5 finger head sticks to the walls of the glass and leaves a decent collar to boot.

S: I get some freshly milled grains first, but what really stands out is the amount of creamsicle sweetness I get.

T: Very reminiscent of Anderson's Summer solstice. Lots of vanilla and some light toast on the mid. The finish is fairly hoppy, and there's a resonating juicy, biting quality to it.

F: Light and crisp. Very well carbonated without being too rough.

O: Another solid offering from Due South. When I asked Mike at the tasting bar which beer best represents their brewery, he filled my growler with this. Very easy drinking yet it's packing plenty of flavor for a low ABV session beer. A must try for Cream Ale addicts like myself.

On draft at Due South for their Grand Opening. Had heard about this beer from prior events so I was jazzed to try this one. Slight caramel cream notes with a tad bit of funk. Heard this batch may have been sub par so I’ll give Due South a break here. Will definitely try again though.
