2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Rating #2262 - 2015.12.17 - Beer #17 in the 2015 Phillips Snowcase. Pours like sparkling apple juice, not much head. Some sort of snakebite concoction. Aroma is sweet apples, mild grainy, mild vegetal. More of the same on the palate. Sweet and stanky.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Visual: Pours clear pale golden yellow with barley any head, ringed retention, lots of singular steady streams.
Nose: apple cider sourness, light funk+fart. (lvl-6)-pungency
Attack: thin viscosity, off-dry entry, very crisp, micro fizzy
Mid-palate: (lvl-3)-sweetness, medium acidic-sour, light-med bodied, (MAIN) red apple cider, liquid barley malt, yeasty
Summary: A suitable meal beer; the acidity and off-dry nature really opens up the palate while quenching the thirst. Not a whole lot of body or complexity, but a unique effort and collab nonetheless.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
From 2015 Snowcase Advent Calendar.
Pours straw, aroma of apple and beer. Taste is pure plonk. Yet another crap beer in the Snowcase Advent Calendar. Were this year’s new beer creations decided upon at the last minute? $80+ for so far for about 8 decent beers, the rest in the box are crap.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from the Snowcase 2015, Advent calendar
Blond color, clean, with small frothy head. Smells of warm plastic, and a bit of fruit, and mulled wine spices. Dry mouthfeel, the flavor is poor and a bit skunky, and the bitterness very low.

341mL bottle, pours a clear pale golden with a small white head. Aroma is almost non-existent, with some feint apple notes. Flavour is quite earthy and herbal, with feint apples notes, a very earthy quality and some stale cardboardy notes. What’s the point here? No idea what they were going for. Crap.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
341ml bottle from Snowcase 2015 pours a clear pale golden color with a fast dissipating white fizzy head that leaves no lacing on the glass. Aroma is green apples with some malts present. Taste is tart apples with some malty sweetness and grassy hop bitterness. Light bodied with decent carbonation. Being called a "snakebite" I feel leery rating this brew as a beer, for the same reasons I don’t rate radlers, as I consider them beer blends.
