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

Very hazy deep amber beer, good pale cream coloured head. Palate is light and a little crisp. Mild fine carbonation. Mild minerals. A little creamy malt, slightly thin. Mild sweet orange and pine. Finishes neutral. Decent and manages to evoke English tangyness!

brokensail (16393) - Dublin, California, USA - APR 2, 2011
A: The pour is a dark copper color with a soapy off-white head and minimal lacing. S: This one pretty much just smells like toast and toasted malts. I was expecting a bit more hop character at least, but apparently Im not going to get it. Maybe a touch of earthy and floral hops if you really strain yourself. T: Like the nose, this beer is all about the toast/toasted malt. Mildly sweet but a fair amount of bitterness is present as well. Not a ton of hop flavor, either. Like with the nose there are just hints of floral and earthy hops. M: Nice and medium-full in body with a moderate level of carbonation. O: Nothing terribly bad about this beer, it was just a bit too one note for me.

Bottle thanks to atxdelivery. Pours clear reddish amber. Nose of caramel malt and bittering hops. Taste is initially dry, then sweet caramel malt followed by some bittering hops and a pine finish. Rather complex for the style.

Whoah! A bottle from ericandersnavy. Eat your friggin hearts out on this one. Poured into the SA super glass. Comes out ruby tinged amber with a multifinger foamy beige head. Aroma is pretty much nice malt. Incredibly, fruitily hoppy flavor. Burns in the mouth. Any Englishman who tastes this would likely just curl up his toes. This could be my go to beer. Bet it would be, if I lived in Texas. Its not harsh, just incredibly, smoothly, fruitily hoppy. Oh to live in Blanco. Maybe not though. Might be too far from an international airport. But if I was drivin through Blanco, Id be packing back a whole bunch of this. Drink this, and your tongue will not pass into the corruption of death. Was that over the top? So is this ale!

Ferris (14405) - 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.
