Southern Tier Live

Brew: Live

Brewery: Southern Tier Brewing Company

Style: American Pale Ale

ABV: 5.5%

Tasting Notes: Before I dive into this review I would like to make mention that this particular Pale is just a little out of the ordinary because unlike most of the competition it is a bottle conditioned brew. This meaning that this beer gets bottled with live active yeast cells to  naturally carbonate it. This brew pours a hazy orange color with gold colored highlights and a half finger thick white head. The nose has an incredibly crisp cascade hop aroma. The sip starts with a subtly sweet malt notes then mingles with the four varieties of hops focusing mainly on the citrus and pine notes to come to a pleasantly dry slightly bitter finish that lingers. The mouth feel is medium along with the carbonation. An incredibly drinkable and very solid replacement for the previous pale ale that was in southern tiers line up. -Cheers
