Bottle bonused to me by blutt59. Thanks Bob! This beer really surprised me. Deep copper color, with a thick off white head. Aroma is a bit of roasted malt, wheat toast, and a nice kick of grassy hops. Complex nose. The taste is just as complex and very satisfying. Tastes of very grassy hops, a bit of pine, toast, and earthiness. The bitterness lingers just long enough. Sticky mouthfeel that coats your palate. I wish I could get this in 6 packs!

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ferris (5243) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 9, 2014
Bottle - Bread, caramel and some light hops. Cloudy copper with a very rich beige head. Caramel, bread and a punchy hop bitterness that fades surprisingly quickly. Nicely done.

Tybalt (212) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - MAR 28, 2014
Muted hop aroma. Pours a deep orangish amber. Sharp bite up front, then some fairly tame biscuity malts, then a ton of hop complexity - very nice and interesting blend of English hops. Finishes very smooth. Nice body to it, while still feeling crisp and refreshing.

Flavor: The taste is balanced, light-mid sweet, decent malt flavor, and medium bitter
