Found this on the shelf at a local Food City Grocery Store and thought I would give it a try. This beer caught me off guard because I am not overly fond of Pale Ales. But this one has changed my mind. The color and head were impressive. The smell, was interesting and made me think I was about to taste something different from what the usual pale ales have been for me. Then, the taste blew me away. I was floored by how good this ale was . A slight bitterness that leaned toward an IPA but not quite, which was very good as I am a big IPA fan. I finished the one I had and now know when I go back to restock, the Natty Greene Southern Pale Ale will be one of my six packs to bring home.

Beer was overall not bad. It was a bit of a gusher though which leads me to believe I didn't experience the best this beer could be.

After the foam explosion settled down, I had a hazy golden beer with a big frothy head. Retention was good and there were broken bands of lacing on the pint glass.

Smell was minimal. Some sweet malt and a little grassy hops.

Taste was ok. A bit sweet, more malty than hoppy.

Mouthfeel was rich enough but not as crisp as most good APAs.

Overall, not a bad beer but there are so many better examples of this style. I may try another one just to see if I had an infected beer.

A - Pours a clear golden straw with a nice finger of light tan head, ok retention, leaves behind a very spotty thin layer after a couple minutes, fairly thick outer ring, strong lacing.

S - Very grassy sweet, somewhat pilsner-esque, bready mild caramel malts.

T - Quite dry, a nice mix of caramel sweet malts, toasty breadyness, and light grassy hops. Doesnt linger much at all, aftertaste is minimally unpleasant. Decent overall but a pretty uneventful brewski.

M - Light crisp and very refreshing, fantastically drinkable.

O - Solid but somewhat run of the mill/boring.

Pours a golden copper with a white bubbly foam. Aroma of floral hops, citrus, and herb. A bit of caramel like sweetness in the nose as well

In the taste, a straightforward hoppy pale, definite cascade notes with a grapefruit, leafy coarseness. The dry hopping of cascade just adds to the floral, citrusy element. Light toasty malt backing does a good job at balancing a stable bitterness

Overall, this is a good medium bodied ale with a hop bite. I think this an old school pale that is easy to drink.
