This was the best of the three Southern Tier beers I had at my brothers in Tennessee, with a light but decent hop flavor. A hint of light fruit as well. Still, none of the three were amazing.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 6/20
Drinkable but nothing really extraordinary. More of a pale ale style with a dry citricy finish.

Full disclosure, this is labeled as PMX. Southern Tier said on their website they revamped this one, so it is different from the old Phin and Matt’s (different abv, different flavor profile as far as I can tell and it seems like an overall better beer based on the more recent ratings.
Bottled. Pours a golden honey color with a white head and thin lacing. Aroma is hops, orange, malt, slight dankness, a little piney. Flavor is hop forward, slight malt sweetness in the middle and a long bitter dry finish. Definitely the hop character you’d expect from an APA. More hoppy than balanced. Especially compared to their Live. Medium carbonation.

ST picked an odd one to call extraordinary. Nothing wrong with this one, but it does absolutely nothing to stand out either. Average for the style and tame for ST. Well balanced, traditionally hopped, slightly refreshing."

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle labeled PMX. A light lagerish pale ale. Starchy aroma coupled with grass, hops and malt. Not bitter or extreme in any way. Inoffensive pale that has balance in the flavor and aroma.

Appearance: slightly hazy golden color, pours with a small off white head that fades quickly
Aroma: slight grass and pine, pretty faint
Taste: bitter throughout, has lots of bitterness, hints of grass, citrus, pine
Palate: lively carbonation, bitter aftertaste, lighter mouthfeel
