    Default 2021 Beer Advent Calendar Review: Phillips Space Case

    Continuing with a tradition that one day we will all be reconciling for - I bring you the reviews of 2021's ultra limited run, Space Case (3rd Edition) from Phillips.

    I'm starting tonight as there are 12 evenings before Christmas and this pack has 12 pints.

    Here's a link to last year's, just in case you're interested.

    I'm very pleased to have not been stuck with 24 cans of vomit from Parallel-49 this year, because I also did that last year, and it was gross.

    As always, please contribute if you also have a Space Case and want to play along.

    Cheers!

    Know what always makes craft beer better? Aging it.

    Aside from buying it for you and leaving it with your wife, there ain't much more I could've done.

    Day 1 of 12: INVASIVE SPECIES - Down Under Hazy IPA
    Worried... I shouldn't be worried, because it's Phillips, but I am... Has Phillips fallen into the putrid Parallel-49 trap?

    Screenshot_20211213-165112_Gallery.jpg

    No. Although this is stinky, hoppy and hazy, somehow, they have pulled it off. It's not something I would seek out by a long way, but I would order a second one at a bar. And I would have lost $650 betting that there was some pineapple in there to balance dem hops. I am positive that's what it is, but no mention on the label, and I trust Phillips enough to believe them.

    Screenshot_20211213-165059_Gallery.jpg

    A bit better than not bad, so they are not coming out swinging this year, but there is no way they are falling on their face!
    They're not living the #7.2Lyfe as this is a paltry 7.1%ABV...

    Day 2: ITALIAN PILSNER

    I got invited to a neighbour's place for some italian pasta, this summer. You know those older white ladies that say that with the long i? Maybe they'd offer you some italian dressing for your salad? Maybe your mom was like that? The type of mom that would question your italian girlfriend's loose morals?

    Well, this is allegedly an Italian Pilsner - which is a bit of a silly thing to say blah blah snobby Pilzen region of Czech, etc... What put the fear back into me was that this smelled hoppy and was described as such. That really grinds my gears. Making traditionally clean and crisp beer into hoppy nonsense makes baby Jesus cry.

    Screenshot_20211213-165142_Gallery.jpg

    Well, sumbitch, they fooled me twice. This is really good! Although, it really doesn't taste like a pilsner, I think they realized that it tastes almost precisely like Moretti, which is about the only Italian beer I recall ever having. Neat! Moretti is a beer that you can buy pretty much across the planet.
    Italy - the place for women, wine, clothes and cars (and worth a try for beer).

    Yeah I was pleasantly surprised by Italian pilsners this summer. I'm not huge on the galaxy, citra, etc. hops but I like the subtle citrus in the Italian pilsners. SYC brewing's Pontificato is really good.

    Day 3: KEEP YOUR FORK - Lemon Meringue Sour

    Super cool and extremely apt name. I think this will end up being the best name. I am calling it, early.

    Screenshot_20211215-185641_Gallery.jpg

    She's definitely a sour, but I'm not puckering up like I just took a pull off the vinegar bottle at the fish & chips place. While it doesn't taste like lemon meringue balancing it out, that flavour is deep in your mind because of the name and it does kind of taste like that - and that's good, for some reason.

    It's not a winner, though. I would have to be very thirsty to order a second one of these or facing nothing else on tap but Kokanee and Pil.
    It's OK...

    You're far too nice on your review of that beer. It was awful. I didn't even finish the can and washed it down with a Brewhouse.

    Day 4: DEEPER ORBIT - Single Hop Pale Ale

    There's nothing really going on, here. This is a disappointingly generic, basic pale ale. You could tell me that this was Molson and I would absolutely believe you. It's not overly hoppy, it's not overly anything.
    It's not good enough.
