Poured into a standard pint glass.

A - Clear golden color with a few bubbles trailing up from the bottom periodically. If I had a glass with a nucleation point this would probably look much better, but alas, the old pint glass will have to do :P. After a pretty aggressive pour there was still not even a finger of head left. Yesterday I managed to get one finger by pouring from a foot above the glass and almost shaking it, but this was just to see if getting any sort of foam would be possible. No lacing at all. Honestly, it's not a bad looking beer; there's just nothing really impressive about it either. 3.0

S - Hoppy pine scent balanced with crisp apple notes. 3.0

T - Initial malty sweetness and fruity flavors which turn to bitter, resinous hop aftertaste. The flavor is well-balanced from start to finish and the aftertaste is pleasant. This beer seems quite simple enough to drink as a session beer, yet it has enough flavor to be appreciated as something more. 4.0

M - Somewhat syrupy-smooth. Little tingle, not a very thick body but the aftertaste and flavor on the back of the tongue lingers. 3.5

O - Phin & Matt's is pretty good. Enjoyable, tasty, and satisfying, sure. But worth the price tag? I'm not quite so sure about that. Either way, if it was on-tap somewhere for a good price I'd definitely be interested, depending on the other options available of course. 3.0
