served in my Bil Cosby National Mechanics pint glass.... and purchased in a Yards Variety pack from Bella Vista Beverage... I love my city... all 4 (Cos, NMs, Yards and BVB) are Philadelphia gems.
impressive color... dark amber, like the dregs of my dad's iced tea
smell malty, citrusy, slight hops - i think my fridge might be a little too cold to get all the senses going... it's intended to be casked.
tastes, slight malt, pilsner like, but heavier... good stuff... ,
good mouthfeel, slightly bitter on the mouth... average...
but overall drinkability is outstanding... 6% - have a few enjoy the Phils and stay taught.

Cask offering at O’Neal’s Pub. The cask variety adds an element of sourness to the normally bitter nature of this beer. Nice woody, dried fruit aroma, more dried fruit in the taste. This is more of a sipper, bringing to mind dubbels and sours. Nicely done!
