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

Pours a hazy copper color with a nice foamy head. The aroma is sweet, fruity, light fruity hops. The flavor is smooth, spicy and light naturally fruity flavors, earthy, toasted malts, slightly hot. A great example of an English Strong Ale. I have been getting some brews in trades from Real Ale, and I have been pleasantly surprised.

Bitter is as bitter does! This brew poured up a murky, coppery colored body with a one-finger head with good retention and thick lacing. Aromas of malts, caramel, a nip of citrus and hops. Flavors of roasted malts, caramel and citrus followed up with a hoppy/bitter aftertaste. The brew is crisp and smooth with a good bitter finish. Would be a good brew for the BBQ!

12 oz bottle, best by 8/2/11. Not quite clear brown with a fading meringue head that leaves a pretty lace garland. Nose is toffee and deeper caramel with hints of wild strawberry and gin. Medium body with a nice zing; a touch sticky. Taste is peach, plum and apricot then woody with lime peel. Nice offering.

6/25/11. 12oz bottle courtesy Cavie. Mostly clear amber/red pour with a big fluffy khaki head that laces quite a bit. Slightly fruity and malty, bitter, caramel aroma. Sweet, caramelly, malty flavor with bitter hops, sweet tea, and more. Not bad!

[Bottle] Pours a dirty golden color with a soapy foam head. Heavy floral and fruit aroma seems almost artificial. Sweet rolls, biscuit, lots of ESB style hops, mild tea flavors and sweet toffee. Lingering sweet finish. Full in body, but the balance was kind of a mess. I got to say I liked this one initially, but as it warmed the flaws started to come out more readily.
