500 mL bottle, this beer is sometimes called “Ale” rather than “Porter”. Taken from notes from England July 2007, cheers Chris!
Not really a Porter in the truest sense of the style. A little thin and not really “stout-like” at all. Reminds me more of an ESB or perhaps a lower ABV Old Ale than a Porter.
Dark Chestnut Brown pour with a splendid looking color body – rich appearance. Small head, some creamy lace.
The mouthfeel is a little lighter than the color and appearance would suggest. Dry and bitter with a hint of smoke – not much, but it is there. Very malty initially, but finishes a little hoppier than I would expect.
Satisfying in terms of taste, if not in terms of body. Very tasty, but lacking something.
