On tap in their tasting room, would rate a solid 3.5/5.

I was able to have this as a nitro handle at Town Hall in Cleveland and it became a completely different animal of smoothness. I wish I could go back and have a full tasting note to share.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5

Phin & Matt's Extraordinary Ale pours a clear and lively, orange corn color. Has a medium sized, dense and creamy head with good retention and moderate lacing. Smells of sweet crackers, light malt, and grassy and floral hops.

Taste starts with sweet stale crackers, then floral hops, moving on to floury bread with a sweet, bready, grassy hop finish. Feel is medium-light, very creamy for how light it is with a touch of breadiness. Higher than average carbonation is what you would expect/want for this style.
