- My Rating: [C, barely upgrade from C-], I gave it a (2.8 of 5) on Ratebeer.com
Slipstream Ale – Phillips Brewing, 5.0% ABV – 341ml., (Victoria, BC, Canada)
- Style: Cream Ale
- Taste: Malty toasted barley cola premature flavour finish
- Do I love this enough to drink it again: no
- Would I recommend this to beer aficionados: no again
(April 2015 tasting): Visual: Pours beer bottle brown, almost no head, barely any retention, many fast steady streams. Nose: brown sugar caramel malts, a some biscuit/cookie as well. (lvl-5)-pungency. Attack: crisp malty bite. Mid-palate: partially thin-flat mouthfeel, (lvl-4)-sweetness, (MAIN) brown sugar, caramel malts, light cola. Finish: light burpy, light-sweet malty super subtle bitter dry hopped finish. Summary: Quite boring actually. Just a malty beer lacking any special characteristics.
Nose: liquid barley malt, some cola caramel. (lvl-4)-pungency
Mid-palate: (lvl-4)-sweetness, (MAIN) toasted malted barley, brown sugar, cola
Finish: malty, soft subtle bitter finish.
Summary: Premature stoppage of flavour before the finish
