Southern Tier Pale Ale

21 Sep

American Pale Ale

Rating: B+

Poured from bottle to pint glass.

The color is a translucent yellow/gold that is perhaps a bit too yellow for an APA.  1” creamy medium-bubbled head that retains well and leaves some decent lacing.  Nose has a sweet malt, hops, floral with a bit of berry.  The taste is certainly hoppy, but not overpowering (sorry hopheads).  Light-medium body with a fair amount of carbonation.  The beer finishes smooth and dry with a sour, lemony aftertaste.  Zing!  Southern Tier has yet to really disappoint me.
