COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
From a true "city of neighborhoods" we offer our take on a "biere de mars, " or a ruddy farmhouse ale. In true Philadelphia fashion, European and American ingredients are melded into a complex, ruby ale with flavors of toasted malt and rye. It's the perfect accompaniment for some quality time enjoyed in the backyard (or on the front stoop) of your urban farmhouse.

Shockingly good. A deep rusted red, perfectly clear ale with a strong aroma of toffee and coffee. The flavor is deep but not complex, large amounts of hops (cascade?) promise bitterness that is absent but not missed, in this case. This is followed by a dirty earthiness. Terrific and filthy. I wish I had access to more!

This bier de mars from Philly Brewing Company really packs a punch. It’s an excellent example of a full bodied farmhouse red ale. The aroma reminds me of waffles with maple syrup. The Rowhouse starts sweet and ends up hoppy. If you’re looking for a nice light summer brew, this ain’t it! Try the Kenzinger for that. I would recommend the red with a nice steak or pork loin. A great beer from an up and coming brewery.

Bottle. Split with Vinny. Pours a beautiful autumn amber with with a soft, thin, delicately laced head. Aroma of freshly baked marbled rye bread, seasame, wheat, roasted malts, and a very slight hint of farmhouse funk. Medium bodied with a slightly sticky, yet loose and juicy mouthfeel. Finishes with a crisp, almost vinous dryness that accompanies some soft fruity notes. This is a truly excellent beer, brewed right here in the best city in the world; Philadelphia.

Cheers to the burgoening efforts of Philly brewers to include one of my favorite ingredients for beer - rye. The mixtre of barley and rye gives this red ale is a nice mellow taste, but taking nothing away from the sbready, somehwat strong but subtle flavors. A true session beer....one of my favorites from the PBC.

Thanks to Zathrus for this brew. Pours very dark red with a tall off white head. Floral fruity nose, soft caramel and rye with a light hoppy finish. Spicing is soft, but adds to the floral quality, mouthfeel is smooth with a soft mineral finish. Malty upfront with a balanced hop finish. Cherry and sweet berry flavors. This is a fricken awesome brew, excellent balance with an amazing flavor. I really cant see the low score, great flavor for a delicious sessionable brew.

Pours a reddish copper color with small head. Aroma of malts, rye, pine and a hint of hops. Flavor was caramel malts, rye, brown sugar, and a nice hop bite at the end. Somewhat chewy with a light carboonation. Solid session beer and a nicely done red ale.
