Real Ale Brewing Company Phoenixx Double ESB
Real Ale Brewing Company Phoenixx Double ESB. The beer pours a dark amber color with a foamy off-white colored head. The aroma consists of lots of caramel, tangerine, grass, and raisin. The taste is smooth and lightly bitter with burnt caramel taking up a majority of the profile and some hints of raisin and orange. The finish brings out some funky grass and ragweed. The alcohol content is 7.2% ABV. This was my first double ESB, but I quite enjoyed it, especially the burnt caramel flavor that brings out quite a bitterness in the beer.
