I had tried the New South Lager a few years back at a beer festival,this is the first I have seen any of their wares in my area.Poured into a standard pint glass a medium brown with a tinge of amber,a tight one finger head atop.Very light aromas with some caramel sweetness sticking out the most,flavors lean in the caramel and chocolate side but not overly sweet,there is a light dryness in the finish.A decent brown not earth shattering but drinkable.

Poured from a can into a pint glass. Family brought this one back for me after a vacation, cheers to them!

Appearance: Well, brown with a thick beige head of about 4 fingers. The head lingered for a long time and left medium to heavy lacing on the glass.

Smell: Nutty with some citrus in the background.

Mouthfeel/Taste: Smooth medium bodied. Taste is very bitter, with a very nutty taste to it. Some hints of citrus and piney hops.

Overall: Not a horrible brew, but Browns are not my style. Credit were due for a decent beer.

look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance: Brown amber hue with a nice creamy tan head leaves some substantial lacing as the head dwindles at a moderate rate. Aroma: Toasted malts bring about a roasted nut tone with a sweet caramel twang mildly hopped, but nice. Taste: A reserved dead on to the style brown ale very English in the malt character nice and subtle hop dose not bad at all could drink this stuff as a go to but I preferred their white ale and lager before this one. Mouthfeel: Medium bodied ale moderate carbonation nice smoothness to it. Drinkability: Overall a run of the mill nut brown but one that saves you in an oasis of mediocre mass of macros.

from notes taken at the brewery:

A: pours a solid brown with into a clear plastic cup with a finger of tan head.

S: nutty and sweet is the theme here. Caramel, toffee and honey roasted peanuts.

T: the sweet candy flavors make the first dance across the tongue. Nuts and heavy caramel notes, toffee. almost a bit cloying but it walks that line on the right side.

MF: there could be a bit more of a body to back up the full flavor of this beer.

O: a very nice nut brown I could see myself having too many of these.

On-tap at Dirty Jacks in Murrell's Inlet, SC.
Brown with some ruby hues. Thin watery head that last as long as the latest Kobe Bryant trade rumors. No lacing.
The aroma was very faint. After submersing my nose into the glass I get some mild nutty aromas. It doesn't smell bad, but I'm disappointed the aroma is not more prominant.
Flavor is pretty good. I agree with the other reviewers as this is a lot like New Castle. Nice nutty flavors mixed with some sweet and roasted malts.
I wish the mouthfeel had more body.
Nothing exciting or worth seeking out. But it's a nice little session ale that's worth your time if it's there.
