4.28/5 rDev +11.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
A: Amber-pale colour, light, lots of carb, high retent head with messy lacing
S: Citrus upfront, lots, with some hop and a little malt. Mostly a hard-to-describe Philips phenol. Probably the best part of tasting!
T: Burnt malt upfront, with citrus and hop in mid, then more burnt malt. Three-stage makes for an interesting palate.
M: Frothy even as a second growler pour, very light and sessionable, moderate carb.
O: A very nice-looking, tasting and smelling beer. Phillips has saturated the style, but is still remains unique in my mind, possible due to the lack of filtering. Good for a friday night, one can easily pound a few back while still feeling refreshed: amazing!
Serving type: growler

341ml bottle at Heartwood Community Cafe.
A: yellow, visible carbonation, minimal head that dissipated quickly
S: not picking up much of anything - a hint of citrus, maybe?
T: grassy bitterness, maaaybe a hint of melon or tropical fruit, not well balanced
F: smooth, medium-bodied
O: Not bad, but it's certainly no Fat Tug or Lord of the Hops. I wouldn't get it again.
