Halftime Beverage

Finally got my hands on a few of Southampton's offerings and this will be the first casuality. Cork releases with a loud pop. Pours a glowing golden-amber. A big loose frothy ivory head blew up on the pour and controlled 2/3 of the glass. Leaves sticky lacing as the head recedes.

Good aromas come forth right off the bat. Toasted and biscuity malts are the canvas of this ale. Fruity esters are mild but very well integrated. Hints of white grapes, pear skin, and even a little Granny Smith apple. Very inviting.

Flavor is right on par with the aromas. There's quite a large malt profile in the form of toasted and biscuity malts just like the smell. Just enough fruity esters round out the flavor perfectly. Again, the pear sking, mild tart green apples, and a touch of the white grapes. Great well rounded flavors coming from this beer.

Medium body that turns exceptionally creamy and frothy as it hits the tongue. Good carbonation massages the tongue.

A beer I can drink all night long without a problem. Refreshing balanced and unique.

This is my second Southampton beer and my first from the 750 series. I can't hardly wait to try the others I picked up. A very solid enjoyable Biere de Garde.

A - Pours a light amber colored body with a slight chill haze to it. Streams of tight bubbles race to the top from the sides of the glass. Big, foamy, soapy looking butter colored head sits on top. Surprising retention for as soapy it looks.

S - Big yeasty notes right up front. Spicy notes of coriander and cloves. Light citrusy hops. Grainy aroma.

T - Starts off with a big time graininess. Sort of reminds me of unsweetend granola. Earthy hops come in, with the graininess still holding on. Yeast brings in a every so slight earthy funk. Light orange and starfruit. Spices come in with cloves and coriander. Grainy maltiness is revisited in the aftertaste.

M - Medium bodied with a sort of crisp carbonation that tickles the tongue just a bit.

Overall - Tasty brew. Not over the top in any way, but brings together a good array of flavors well.
