3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This beer pours a very clear amber (dark or a cream). Carbonation is low, but not too low. It has a medium-full body and is nice and creamy with very little hop bitterness. There are no off-flavours, there's nothing special about this beer, but it's a nice beer.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
341 ml bottle poured at Lar’s place in Red Deer. Pours a copper colour with a thin, almost nonexistent white head. Not a lot of aroma; am picking up a bit of malt. Taste is a little better. Has a nutty, malty flavor but is a bit watery. Easy to drink but isn’t going to win any awards.

Copper pour, weak head. Aroma is caramel, nuts. Taste has some light fruit hops but is very malt forward throughout. Interesting cream ale.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: DEC 9, 2015 Visual: Pours beer bottle brown, almost no head, barely any retention, many fast steady streams.
Nose: brown sugar caramel malts, a some biscuit/cookie as well. (lvl-5)-pungency
Attack: crisp malty bite
Mid-palate: partially thin-flat mouthfeel, (lvl-4)-sweetness, (MAIN) brown sugar, caramel malts, light cola
Finish: light burpy, light-sweet malty super subtle bitter dry hopped finish.
Summary: Quite boring actually. Just a malty beer lacking any special characteristics.
[December 8, 2015 re-tasting]:
Nose: liquid barley malt, some cola caramel. (lvl-4)-pungency
Mid-palate: (lvl-4)-sweetness, (MAIN) toasted malted barley, brown sugar, cola
Finish: malty, soft subtle bitter finish.
Summary: Premature stoppage of flavour before the finish

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Nutty malt aroma. Pours dark copper with very small head. Creamy malt flavour with notes of nuts and brown sugar. Some sweetness lingering in the finish. Not bad.

Indeed creamy with grass and nut hints. Somehow less "Phillips-esque". A forgettable ale in an amazing line of beer.

Drank from bottle, sweet, caramel, fizzy, creamy, it’s alright, not the best Phillips, but certainly drinkable.
