Southern Tier "Phin & Matts Extraordinary Ale"
Southern Tier Brewing Company - Lakewood, New York USA
American Pale Ale (ABV 5.7%) (IBU 37)

[Suggested Glassware: Shaker Glass]

Rating: 2.9/5.0

Aroma: 5/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 6/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 12/20

The pour was a clear golden orange with a small (less than 1 finger) white fizzy head that fully dissipated in seconds, and pretty much had no lacing at all.

The aroma was super light of a light bread malt, pine and citrus hops and a mild soapy yeast and had hints of citrus (orange and grapefruit) and caramel.

The taste was mild like the aroma, with a slight bitterness and a touch of caramel throughout and had a light citrus peel finish. The flavor was only around for a short time following the swallow, and was crisp and refreshing although it faded rather quickly.

Mouthfeel was light in body with a slightly dry texture and a mild carbonation.

Overall a this was a somewhat light Pale Ale, which did have a decent taste and a nice crispness along with a really good drinkability. This is a great brew for those really hot summer nights…
