Phillips Snowcase 2014 Calendar Day #14
- My Rating: [D+], I gave it a (2.2 of 5) on Ratebeer.com
Elsinore – Phillips Brewing, 5.0% ABV – 341ml., (Victoria, BC, Canada)
on the front-right label:
“Elsinore is authentically brewed & cold fermented using superior yeast, first-rate two-row barley and the finest hops.”
- Style: (pale) Lager
- Taste: sweet almost salty bready liquid barley malt
- Do I love this enough to drink it again: no
- Would I recommend this to beer aficionados: uncharacteristically boring
Visual: Pours cloudy golden marmalade orange without much head, very thin ringed retention, large bits of suspended sediment.
Nose: sweet liquid lager malt, sour citrus in the background. (lvl-5)-pungency
Attack: crisp, bready
Mid-palate: (lvl-5)-sweetness, (MAIN) liquid barley malt
Finish: malty sweet aftertaste, dull bitter hops
Summary: Very plain and very boring. No complexity whatsoever, but drinkable at least.
