2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from mix pack that stole from my parents. Honey brown with a tall fluffy cap. Soapy earth, boiled vegetables, hints of pennies. Aroma is a bit of a turnoff. Taste is earthy, leather, soapy floral, I wish I never poured this. Mild asparagus??? Do I detect a hint of peat...... I do. Bitter finish lingers long time. This beer is just mess, its all over the place and no where good.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Growler from brewery. Pours copper with a thin bubbly head. The good: dry, crisp and bitter -- earthy yeast; nutty, toasted corn flake malt; floral hops. The bad: slightly sour, metallic taste; a bit thin and watery. Smells good and tastes fine at first, but gets gradually worse with each sip.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Why the hell does every Phillips beer taste the same...light and fruity with that Phillips offputting flavor, light lactose and metallic hops. Just garbage palate and a thin mouthfeel. Some good light citrus fruit notes. WTF! tastes just like the Analogue 78 Kolsch I had.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from mixpack. Pours clear bronze with thin head. Aroma offers caramel malt, flowery and lemony hops. Hops win out. Taste is quite dry, moving towards a long bitter finish. In general, a little watery. Middling, but respectable.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
I had a pint of this while waiting for public transit to become all one zone. It poured a nice amber/brown colour with a fairly thin beige head. A wonderfully complex fresh hop aroma. A nice malt profile balanced, yet still showcased the refreshing hop flavour. Mild hop bitterness, definitely a great session ale. It will be a shame when this stuff runs out.
