Not sure if I got a bad bottle or not but a funky fruit like aroma and taste. Maybe citrus. Just tasted very off to me. Not one of my favorite brews from southern tier.

Nice and crisp. Quite hoppy and carbonated for a pale ale. Thin and light nonetheless. Delicious nose. No award winner yet exceeded expectations.

Draft in 16 oz pint glass
A very slightly cloudy yellow with thin, but lasting head; smells of lemon/citrus; fairly typical pale ale with good hop features; mild bitter that lingered a bit too long for my liking;a fairly standard and very drinkable if you prefer this style

12 oz. bottle

Pours a slightly hazy golden straw color, sudsy white head retains well at about a quarter inch.

Smells of honey and citrus over grassy malts with a light fresh piney hoppiness.

Tastes of dry grassy malts with a hint of citrus and a dry bitter hop bite.

Fuller body with fluffy carbonation.

A nice dry pale ale that still manages a fruity character. Very tasty and easy to drink, lives up to Southern Tier's lofty standards.
