Southern Tier Live is a hoppy American pale ale, and I like it. There is a lot of carbonation in the cloudy, pale orange body, and the medium head leaves a fair amount of lace. There is a lot of hoppiness in the aroma. Big, lemony citrus hops are all over the nose, and they almost dominate the flavor. There is a mildly buttery, bready malt in the background for balance, though. If it were easier to find and a little more affordable, I can see me making this a regular lawnmower beer.
