Southern Tier Brewing – Phin & Matt’s Extraordinary Ale

Southern Tier Phin Matt Extraordinary

A BETTER SESSION BEER than their Eurotrash Pilsner, leading with biscuit and a bit of pine in the aroma before filling in a medium light body with three malts—mixed enough to give texture without delivering much of a sweet or grainy impression. Yet, from its moderate golden hue to medium pale head, middling carbonation and ‘just there’ kind of finish, this beer ends up being the antithesis of its soubriquet. Better than bad—just not setting a high bar for one of the more broadly-distributed New York craft brewers in the Midwest.
