A: thin head on a clear golden amber body with scattered lacing.

S: the aroma is excellent with lots of citrus and musty, earthy hops. light on the malts.

T: hops are on the bitter, earthy and metallic side. caramel malt base which is semisweet. The citrus is a little more sour and mostly is up front.

M: medium body and moderate to high carbonation.

Overall: strong bitter/metallic after taste for the style. Still very flavorful but just too sour which effects drinkability.

First had: bottle at Riverside Market Cafe, Ft. Lauderdale, FL

I figured I'd might as well try this as I probably won't see Mississippi or any of their beers any time soon. Pretty much standard APA here. Poured into a Bell's shaker pint, a clearish, copper liquid with about a 1/2 inch of frothy white head that sank to a thin layer and left a bit of lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus and pine hops, pale bready malts. No surprises here, but certainly nothing bad about it. Similar taste, citrus pith, piney, leafy in the hop department, mildly bitter, solid sugary malt base, toasted grains. Medium body, moderately dry and crisp. Nothing that hasn't been done before, but a good basic pale ale overall.

16 ounce pint - $4.75 at Taco Mac in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Served a light copper body, quite clear, and topped with an eighth of an inch of whitish foam.

Smell: Forward notes of caramel, pale malts, and a bit of basic breadiness ahead of the citrus (quietly pithy) and lowly resinous florals.

Taste: Sugar-toned pale malts with a bit of pils, too. Faint florals and citrus fruitiness. Medium-light bitterness. A minor hint of light-colored caramel joins the party with some warmth, though later and lighter than expected from the nose. Closes out lightly bitter and dry.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation.

Overall: Works as a nice little slender, sleek, food-friendly ale.

12oz brown ale with no freshness date.

LOOK: Big froth, shiny golden

SMELL: Spicy, floral, orange zest, hint of pine, biscuity, yeast, faint esters

TASTE: Bitter, vegtal, thin graininess, orange peel, leafy, earthy, grainy, dry, chalky yeast

Assertive with a lot going on, a bit chaotic as the hoppiness runs a bit astray and there is not much there to tame it. One and done.

This was a gift to me from Sam Knocken and I wanted to get it in while it is still fresh. The CANQuest (TM) must wait!

From the bottle: "American Pale Ale was first crafted by West Coast Brewers who drew inspiration from English and India Pale Ale styles. Americans are known for taking a good idea to the extreme. Southerners are known for taking extreme ideas and making them great."; "Some think the South is behind the fads. We aren't slow. We just take our time, use what we like and leave the rest behind. This is the sentiment behind Deep South Pale Ale: something bold and distinctive, a vibrant reflection of the culture and flavors unique to The Deep South."; "Deep South Pale Ale's dry hop aroma reminds you of a walk through southern pine forests on a warm summer day. The crisp malt character is balanced with the spicy aroma of hops to provide a smooth, refreshing finish. We broke away from published style guidelines and created our own style: Deep South Pale Ale."

My pour initially netted a finger-and-a-half of tawny head, but it quickly fell, leaving some sticky lacing in its wake. Color was a deep-gold with NE-quality clarity and Midas and Croesus were envious. Nose was indeed redolent with pine hops, but I will have to take their word for it on what "southern pine forests on a warm summer day" smell like. Mouthfeel was medium but the taste seemed kind of saturated with dry hops. My tongue felt like it had been dusted with hops by the time that I swallowed. Finish was dry, but it just did not seem to be my cup of tea.

A new one for me for sure. I have been fairly impressed with what I have had of theirs and this one was no exception. Served cold and poured into a pint glass, this one was consumed on 1/27/2010.

The pour was decent, dark amber in color with slight red highlights to it that seemed to fit the style nicely, Small white head crept up and over the top and gently settled down leaving a cratered and rocky look that soon turned to a bare copper top. Lots of bready notes coming off of here right away, smooth and delicate caramel as well as a touch of musty bread are all trying to work themselves in now in various forms. As I take the first sip I notice the feel to be a little lighter then I would have thought but it does seem to work overall. Well carbonated the first sip hits with caramel malts and an herbal, almost flowery like taste that melts into a gritty and bready malt. Very nicely done. Easily drinkable as I was able to put this one down fairly quickly and move onto the next selection of the night.

Overall while not the best thing I have ever had it certainly worked and I would have no issue with trying another 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.

Thanks to piginapen for trading this one to me.

Pours a clear yellow with a huge white, pillowy head. Looks about like a BMC lager. The aroma has a lot more hop character than I expected, with some pine and earthy aromas. You get some citrus and biscuit malt as well. The main flavor is piney hops. Wheat is present, but not as much as expected. The beer finishes very dry and is highly carbonated with a light/medum mouthfeel. Overall, this is a nice drinking hoppy pale wheat ale. I have not had many beers like this and would like to try it again.

12oz. bottle poured into an imperial pint. No bottled date. Thanks to BeerFMAndy for the trade.

(A)- Pours a hazy copper color that produced so much white foam, I only got about a 1/3 of the actual beer from the bottle. Way overly carbonated.

(S)- Rank Pine Sol cleaner with mountains of lemon.

(T)- Same as the taste; rank lemon & lime cleaner.

(M)- Far too much carbonation. Way too bitter and cloying; might as well drink actual Pine Sol.

(D)- No thank you, although its definitely infected or over carbonated or the combination of the two. Could only take a few sips of what was left.

Copper pour, kind of a overcarbonated pour that'll get you scared there was something more sinister going on. Aroma was mildly hoppy and in moderation but nice.

Light body, some hoppiness, unique mild bitter tang edge to it. I could see this being a fun beer to have around on a 97% humidity kind of warm day. Is it a mix of wheat and barley? Had that mouthfeel. Oneo f those nice session pale ales that isn't massively hopped.

A: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had an amber color and a clear consistency. There was a small amount of foamy head that quickly dissipated. Very little lacing.

S: A somewhat muted aroma of hops, malt, and a hint of citrus.

T: Pretty much tasted like it smelled: Mild hops, a little malt in the finish, and a tinge of citrus as well. Not bad, but certainly could have used a bit more of a push.

M: A good amount of carbonation with a smooth finish. Light-bodied.

O: There are definitely worse APAs out there than this one, but there are better ones, too. Not undrinkable, but kind of forgettable.
