Duke Of Winship

12 oz single.
The label suggests that this beer is a cross between a Scotch Ale and a Porter. I’m not sure what that means, but in the final analysis the beer drinks largely like an American Porter to me.
“American” in the manner that the hops are higher than the original English version, and the beer has a less creamy texture and finishes drier. No Scotch Ale character for me.
Dark brown pour with a few reddish highlights. Head is good and leaves some decent lace.
Nose has some malts but is fairly neutral. A few darker grains,
A little thin, lacks a creamy texture. Dry finish with a touch of bitterness and light prickle on the carbonation.
Not much going on here, but the beer is non-offensive. Unfortunately it is also non-memorable as well. Sort of a neutral beer for me.
