The 54th beer review on the 90 Beers of Autumn List

Southern Tier Live, an APA

Pale ale time! After a bunch of big bottle brews, it’s nice to settle back into a simpler, enjoyable beer.

Southern Tier has been a brewery I’ve admired for many years. Rarely do they produce a beer that I don’t enjoy.

This is a very smooth beer, yet still amply hopped up. Even though the hops are more muted, I much prefer this over the 2xIPA, which I find a little rough.

Some citrus and grapefruit sweetness, just juicy enough to keep it smooth, but resiny hoppy enough to keep it bold. It’s a great beer to enjoy a few of – quite sessionable even at 5.5%.

To me, it is perhaps the most underrated beer from Southern Tier. Highly suggest anyone to give this beer a try.

This 90 Beers of Autumn series is a follow-up to the original 95 Beers of Summer series completed in 2011. It’s quite simple – drink 90 different beers, one for each day of the season. Autumn in Toronto, Canada begins at 4:22am on September 23rd, 2015 and ends at 11:48pm on December 21st, 2015. Since autumn in 2015 is five days shorter compared to summer in 2011, the challenge should be easier this time around. I will let you ponder why there is such a strange seasonal length disparity…
