Our winter seasonal Phoenixx rises from the great ale recipes of the UK, but weíve 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, itís all about the hops. Made from a blend of hops from across the pond, highlighted by the Phoenix hop variety from Kent, this special brewís signature is its complex and strong hop character. This winter, warm up with a pint or two of a British-inspired beer thatís been reborn a Texan. 15.5į

onceblind (7495) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 2, 2014
Clearish amber with a thin off-beige cap. The aroma is malty sweet with some light caramel and crystal nuttiness, with a light touch of grassy pine. The taste is nice and smooth, thorough maltiness with a semi-sweet earthy caramel, with a smooth grassy and pine resin bitterness throughout that really shines during the long lasting finish. But theres this herbal bite throughout that I canít describe other than French fry seasoning. Itís light, but there. Not in any bad way. Just has that bbq salt-ish twang.

blankboy (7268) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 2, 2012
Draught at the Alamo Drafthouse - Village, Austin, Oct. 19. Pours a deep amber with an average size long-lasting foamy off-white head. Lots of lacing on the glass. Aroma has a good amount of fruity and spicy hops along with some fruit, caramel malt and a hint of spice. Flavour is fruity, hoppy and quite spicy and has a good bitter finish. Medium bodied. Not sure what style this is supposed to be but itís pretty darn good.
