One of Southern Tier's newer offerings, this continues their tradition of quality balanced, flavorful ales. The American pale ale designation is accurate, not overpoweringly hoppy with a solid pale malt base. Fruity and floral notes dominate throughout as opposed to the piney flavors of west coast hoppy ales. The live terminology refers to the active yeast in this unfiltered beer which give the beer a tart but not sour quality similar to belgian pale ales though it does not taste like a belgian yeast is used. Finishes clean and dry leaving the pallet wanting more, this is a beer that you could drink several pints of.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a perfect pint.

3.75 A: Moderately hazed orange brown color. Two fingers of frothy/creamy off-white head. Retention is very good and lots of lacing is left. A few small floaties in there.

4.5 S: Lots of citrusy hoppiness in here. HUGE orange aroma with peach and mango underneath. Mild doughy yeastiness. Sweet neutral maltiness. This smells wonderful.

3.5 T: Unlike the nose, the taste isn't nearly as impressive. Just a mild citrusy hop flavor. Mild bitterness. Light neutral malts with light yeasty breadiness.

3.5 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Light creaminess with just a touch of chewiness. Not bad.

3.5 D: This started out so strong, but failed to pull it off with the taste.

I purchased this at Shady McGrady's enjoyed chilled from a goblet.

The color is a golden hued amber with mild hazed look and thick white head that drops to a ring with ring of lace. The smell is fruity hops with some mild yeast ester and hint of malt aroma. The feel is decent with balance of malt sweetness and slight bitter hops with fruity and tangy yeast with moderate carbonation and semi-dry finish.

The taste is good with slight pine tinge from the hops with light citrus and slight astringent flavor like overbrewed tea with a mild malt flavor which adds sweetness to balance the slight bitter aspect. The taste of malt is pretty well interwoven with the hops and yeast as a pale should be. Overall this is a nicely flavored pale, not very complex or intense but it is good for the style
