4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma is sweet resin-hop with alcohol definitely present. Also contains strong fruity notes that resemble fruity pebbles cereal..... or fruit roll-ups, if you will (Do they still make those?) A beautiful reddish-amber color with a clear complexion. Develops an impressive white frothy head that quickly diminishes after the pour. Very minimal lacing occurs (more like spotting... again, if you will). Heavy bitter taste (much like an IPA) with a fruit notes gathering in the nose. Medium-bodied that is impressive as far as ales go, with a slick texture. Fizzy carbonation in the mouth with a lingering bitter finish that is a bit biting. Not a bad brew, although I’m not jumping off the couch to buy more.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This crisp ESB has always been a staple in the frig. It pours a creamy amber with an off-white/tan head that lingers on the glass. The bite is clean with a subtle floralness that floats through the nasal cavity. A nice light malt with a bit of body makes the Phoenixx a very refreshing alternative.
