Today on TBD - 17. Southern Tier Brewing Company, Phin & Matt's Extraordinary Ale.
"To label a beer as Extraordinary is to trust its ingredients from the start". Well that's just what Southern Tier has done, they have created a great American Pale Ale that has some of the best whole hops and the choicest malted barley. This beer is a harmony of both toasty malts and sharp citrusy spice and they parade around your mouth and tongue in harmony to create a truly enjoyable beverage.
As you pour this beer you will notice its golden wheat coloring, almost an amber but slightly lighter. You will see its ample head and note the carbonation dancing along the sides of the glass as it is resting. As you lift it to your snout (uh, I meant nose) you will smell the toasted malts and you will note the sweet citrusy flavor as you take your first swig. It has a bitter nip to it as you swirl it in you mouth yet it is smooth and soothing as you drink it down. In my opinion they have managed to deliver a well balanced brew that I think you will enjoy from the first one to the last, then you will want to go and get another. I recommend you do that, just let your buddy drive you to get that next 6 pack. Unless he has had one of is own, then I say buy more to start with. Enjoy!
