COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our winter seasonal Phoenixx rises from the great ale recipes of the UK, but we’ve brewed it with a distinctly American attitude. Deep amber in color, Phoenixx delivers subtle notes of toffee and caramel, characteristic of traditional English Crystal malt. Yet with this ale, it’s all about the hops. Made from a blend of hops from across the pond, highlighted by the Phoenix hop variety from Kent, this special brew’s signature is its complex and strong hop character. This winter, warm up with a pint or two of a British-inspired beer that’s been reborn a Texan. 15.5°

(Draft) Pours a deep amber body with a medium beige head. Aroma of caramel, orange, nuts, and toasted grain. The flavor is dominated by chocolate and caramel malts that balance out nicely with the citrusy hops and light nutty notes in the finish.

Dogbrick (11354) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 17, 2013
Sample at Hay Merchant in Houston. This brew pours a reddish-copper color with a medium off-white head that recedes slowly. Rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of malt, toffee and fruit. Medium-bodied with flavors of roasted malt, sweet toffee and ripe fruit. The finish is sweet and malty up front and leaves an herbal hops aftertaste. Decent overall.

Nice beer! Amber pour. Caramel, fruit, hops, citrus, mmmmm! Flavor is sweet and hoppy. I am really digging the few double ESB’s I have tried. This one is chewy and hearty. Really a good brew.
