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

Nice dark brown pour. Head was tanish white, that disolved quickly. Had a strong alcohol and malt aroma. Has a malty, fruit, alcohol flavor. Has a nice bite at the end. Good drinker.

The Phoenix Double ESB (Extra Special Bitter) from Real Ale is a beer with awesome packaging and a great taste to boot. I took a gamble buying it and it was well worth the purchase. If you like other brews from Real Ale, you will not be disappointed with this one.

bottle pours a deep red with a tall frothy tan head. Aroma is full of biscuit malt and citrus with a heavy dose of grassy hops. Flavor is rich bready malts lots of toast and nuts with lighter notes of rye and a small hint of chocolate malt. Finish is hop dominate with lots of pine and resin flavors balancing that nice malt character. This is a home run!

Aroma of citrus and floral hops with sweet caramel malt. Throw in some chocolate and you’ve got one delicious candy. A center pour produces a thick and rocky tan head that clings fairly well. Color is a brilliant orange. Taste is sweet at first with a substantial bitter bite at the end. Full and slick with resin. Damn fine in every respect.
