Southern Star Brewery – Pine Belt Pale – 16 oz. can poured into a goblet. 6.3% abv. From Bob in TX.
Appearance: Pours a cloudy amber with a fluffy beige head.
Aroma: Huge whiffs of pineapple and brown sugar.
Taste: Pineapple, citrus, brown sugar, caramel. Very similar to Dale’s Pale Ale.
Mouthfeel: Thick with low to medium carbonation.
Overall: I was really surprised at how good this is. I hate to be influenced by the Dale’s Pale Ale that popped into my head, but there is more to the similarities besides the can.
