12 oz bottle poured into an Imperial pint. "Deep south pale ale" 12/05/09 printed on the label.

Thanks to PerzentRizen for this bottle!

A - A moderate pour released a gushing head. After overflowing everywhere, it stood at just above four fingers tall. The loose bubbles hung on for a long time leaving some loose lacing. The beer is a lightly hazy golden yellow with decent carbonation bubbles rising up. Great appearance after the overflow mishaps.

S - The aroma is a bit faint which could be due to the age. I'm picking up low pale malts with a lemon citrusy hop nose that's a bit floral in nature. It could stand to be stronger.

T - The flavor is a citrusy lemon hop crispness with a floral touch and a low pale malt backbone. The whole flavor is just a bit thin.

M - Thin feeling despite a medium-low body. A bit watery too. The finish is crisp from carbonation and a bit dry with very little in the way of bitterness.

D - I think I'd love to try this fresh but it's not terrible now. The body needs a little work and the aroma could be a bit stronger, but it's a great start. I could have a few of these while watching a movie.

A: Decent head on a copper colored brew. Head was good initially but did not retain well. Almost no lace.

S: Not much hop aroma, a touch of biscuit and breadiness.

T: WHile this beer has not oxidized, it just tastes a bit like cardboard. The hops are not very present and the sweetness is rather bland.

M: Not bad considering. It is refreshing and light with nothing off to note.

D: I am sure I could drink many of these but don't know if I would want to

12 oz bottle pours a clear, dark gold color with a fluffy white head. Nice retention, just a little lace.

Nose is an even split of crackery, biscuit maltiness and piney hops. A little bit of nutty yeast comes out as it warms.

Taste is pretty similar to the nose with lots of piney bitterness. The malt is fairly prevalent and very boorish. For a new beer, bring something to the table, not just a rehash of something that has been done hundreds of times by hundreds of breweries. This tastes like a Pale Ale that was born in the mid-90s with classic varietals of hops and malt. Its a decent Pale Ale, but it is so very boring and desperately needs more hop flavor. I wont buy it again, I find it to be just on the short side of average.

Poured into a glass at Brent's Drugs, Jackson, MS during a play reading. Not bad for $2.

A: rust colored with a half finger head that dissipates pretty quick. Leaves a thin white circle of head around the glass. Light lacing.

S: Piney resins dominate with a pinch of malt thrown in.

T: Hops come through with a real flourish, then begin to diminish. Slightly bitter finish, but not overpowering. Crisp and clean. Floral and citrus notes from the dry hopping.

M: light to medium; low carbination.

O: Very smooth. Drinks more like an IPA. Hopheads will cheer for this one.

Oh yeah. Mississippi tick thanks to Bobby.

A: The beer pours a golden amber color with a small white head.

S: Lightly hoppy on the aroma with a hop profile comprised mostly of citrus peel and grass. Otherwise, it's quite sweet with lots of toffee and bread malt aromas. Maybe just a light floral hop note.

T: Not the most pleasant flavor. It begins with stale bread, a touch of metal, and cardboard. A rather light floral hop note with sweet malt/bread and some fruity yeast esters. Hints of grass and a very mild bitterness.

M: Medium in body with medium to low carbonation.

O: My first Mississippi beer was a disappointing one. Decent aroma, but below average flavor.
