Nutty, caramel, nice firm bitterness, medium-length finish, citrus, not much sweetness mysticbrew (118) - - NOV 21, 2014
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.

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. ZacM612 (699) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - MAR 31, 2014
Dark amber with off-thick white head. Aroma of caramel, and a little nuttiness. Nice hops and bitterness with a little bit of citrus in the finish. Good one. 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. ben4321 (6391) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - FEB 11, 2014

Appearance: Its has a clear copper pour, with a beige head, and some fairly heavy lace
Flavor: The taste is balanced, light-mid sweet, decent malt flavor, and medium bitter

I thought this was a pretty interesting offering. It had some decent balance and plenty of flavor. Good stuff.
