Real Ale Phoenixx Double ESB Review

Real Ale Phoenixx double ESB

Appearance (0-4): Pours up a slightly hasy dark amber with orange highlights and a tan head that lingers a while. 3 points

Aroma (0-3): Aroma of caramel, some chocolate, and a bit of roast. 3 points

Taste: Hop/Malt Balance (0-4): subdued malt background , some dark malt flavors, but accented with dank piney hops that brighten in the finish. Interesting but balanced blend of hops. 4 points

Aftertaste (0-3): Hop bitternes lingers, but isn't overpowering. 3 points

Mouthfeel (0-3): Light to medium bodied with strong carbonation. 2 points

Overall Impression (0-3): Extremely drinkable, with a nice hoppy kick. This could replace their Rye Pale Ale or the Coffee Porter as my favorite beer. 3 points

Total: 18 points
