Poured from a 22oz bomber into an English-style pint glass.
A: Pours a nice, clear orange-amber with a white head that fades out to a covering layer fairly quickly.
S: Malt and caramel with notes of dark fruit and then a slight hops aroma.
T: The taste follows the smell. Malt and caramel followed by a light hops flavor and balanced by a bitterness. No carbonation sting.
M: Medium bodied and smooth. No carbonation bite, no alcohol bite.
O: A good representation of this style. Balanced and very drinkable. At 6.3% ABV, I would not call it a session ale but I will buy this again.

I had this on tap at Quick six -served chilled in a tumbler.
The color is standard light amber with a creamy cap of pale tan which holds very well and the cream is made up of fine beads. The smell is nice with a good aroma of malt that includes a delicate spice note from the hops with a mild nutty odor. This has a very balanced feel with mild alcohol and medium light body. the bitterness is within range which makes the sweetness of the malt seem average. The feel is good for a sessionable strength EsB.
I enjoy the way the malt comes through on this with a mild caramel flavor that is augmented by a nice nuttiness. The flavor has a very good balance of malt with the spice of the hops coming through. There is enough hop in the flavor to notice but not enough to really pick out a particular taste profile ie- pine or fruity. The yeast presence is pretty clean yet has a mild buttery accent to the malt with the diacetyl still mild in the overall taste. I really enjoyed this first taste of South County and would be interested in having another of their beers in the future.
