First brewed in 1963, Phoenix is the national beer of Mauritius and is brewed on the island using malted spring barley from Australia and Europe.
Sampled before 1st May 2011
Clear, pale golden yellow and thin white head.
Weak hop and cereal aromas with faint carbolic soap-like aroma.
Clean, light (being honest, rather non-descript) palate with biscuity and fresh grapefruit flavours. Nothing bad though and I'm sure very refreshing in the Mauritius heat.
Crisp, lightly hopped finish.
