Orion Southern Star Pour

Tasting Notes:
Southern Star from Orion Beer is a 3rd tier new genre brew, with nice bubbles up front and a crisp clean aftertaste. Although I would prefer a little more flavor on the backend, it’s a generally refreshing beverage in this new genre category. Originally released in June 2012 and being a limited run, it’s probably completely off the store shelves by now. Better luck next summer!
