COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
When Phin and Matt sat down to collaborate on their new beer, they knew it had to be different if they were to call it extraordinary. "Let sprinkle it with fairy dust and wave our magic wands," said Phin. "No way," said Matt, "We’ve got to do better than that. This beer has to be better than any other in the galaxy." "Let’s do some market research." So the two strapped on their rocket pack packs and traveled to the intergalactic beer store. After sampling an array of beers from acrossed the galaxy, the duo hit on an idea. "I’ve got it" exclaimed Matt, "we’ll use vast amounts of whole hops, the finest malt, and put a little more love in every batch." "Eureka!" shouted Phin. And thus became a beer so fresh and tasty the duo put their names on it. 37 IBU’s, 5.6% ABV

Bottle. The pour was a clear golden orange with a small (less than 1 finger) white fizzy head that fully dissipated in seconds, and pretty much had no lacing at all. The aroma was super light of a light bread malt, pine and citrus hops and a mild soapy yeast and had hints of citrus (orange and grapefruit) and caramel. The taste was mild like the aroma, with a slight bitterness and a touch of caramel throughout and had a light citrus peel finish. The flavor was only around for a short time following the swallow, and was crisp and refreshing although it faded rather quickly. Mouthfeel was light in body with a slightly dry texture and a mild carbonation. Overall a this was a somewhat light Pale Ale, which did have a decent taste and a nice crispness along with a really good drinkability. This is a great brew for those really hot summer nights…

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.

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."

60minuteman (835) - Frazer, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 28, 2014
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.
