12 oz single from Trader Joe’s purchased just before they cut off the single sales in their GA stores.
Bit of a murky brown pour, but held up to the light I get some VERY distinct red tones. Small head that disappears quickly and very little lace.
Nutty and lightly fruited nose and similar tastes. Very light mouthfeel and not really Porter like at all. I would call this a Brown Ale as much as anything EXCEPT for the very slightly smoky finish. Tiny bitterness in the ending too. Up to that point it behaves largely like a brown ale. A little dry chocolate in the finish too.
Another interesting beer from the Trader Joe’s collection, and I was glad I tried it. EXTREMELY good value for a simple, but drinkable beer.
