Phin and Matts Ordinary Ale is just that, ordinary. Not that thats bad because it is basically a good beer and really have no problem drinking, it's just nothing grabs you and pulls you in. No hop bite or malty goodness.
What it is though is crystal clear with a smal lwhite head. It's golden amber and has denset carbonation. The aroma is really light. Lite hops and bready malts.
Taste is akin to the nose, lightly hopped and almost absent. Malts are sweeter with a bready grain feel, include husks and hulls in there too. Some floral hops.
I could buy a case of this beer no problem, but it maybe a second or third option.
I would have no problem drinking this at some chain restaraunt or a backyard party or down the shore if Saqndy leaves any.

Wow this surprised me. A - rich golden color. S - hoppy, I'm still undecided about IPA's so I'm hesitant. T - smooth malt flavor with hints of hop notes. Bites at the end but pleasurable. M - Thick but goes down fast. O - 3 hops instead of 2 with the farmers tan, yet a touch more subtle. Makes up for it with a dry end, it surprised me how good it tasted.

One of my new favorite IPA's. If you've had a farmers tan by southern tier it's similar. Not to hoppy of an IPA and it goes down very easy. I'm just getting into IPA's and this is a good one. Smooth taste and mouthfeel. Will be buying this again. New fan
