Made exclusively for the Asda supermarket chain by Shepherd Neame
A Porter of true character, made with only the finest malted barley for a firm, bitter flavour.

maeib (8391) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAY 7, 2005
Bottled. A dark petrolly brown coloured beer with no head. The aroma is fairly thin but there are chocolate malts noticeable. The taste is lightly roasty with more chocolate but, disappointingly, a thin mouthfeel. Obviously a dead beer.

Joeh (2038) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2005
Bottle from Asda, High Wycombe. Pours dark ruby with a large, fluffy tan head. Aroma is dusty with some manky malt. Flavour is thin and sweet malty with lots of fruit and a little acidity. Dead in the bottle and boring. Towards the end, as it warms up it becomes fuller, sweeter but still retains a tinny acidity.

JonMoore (1807) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 31, 2005
Dark brown with some ruby colour, beige frothy head. Sweetish malty aroma. taste is malty, chocolately, fruity with some fairly bitter hops at the end. A king amongst pasteurised brews, as in its not bad.

presario (4535) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 26, 2004
Clear bottle. Dark brown wth burgundy highlights. Light filmy head. Slightly sour malty aroma. They missed the mark on the firm flavour but there is a bitterness in the finish. Thin flavour, bitter chocolate, thin body. Not a bad beer but a poor porter.

TipsyMcStager (1128) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 26, 2004
Aroma is sparse - some malt, wine notes. Pours a dark brown/black, thin brownish head. Flavour is some sweetness, but fairly one-dimentional. Some hops in the back end. Weak on the malt. Thin all around. Lacking the complexity of a high quality porter.

RichardWilding (201) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 1, 2004
Bottle. I really liked this one, nice malty flavour. Tasted some roastiness, and a hint of dark fruit.

DanielBrown (3627) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 10, 2004
Bottle from, wait for it... Asda, Perry Barr, Birmingham. Black beer, with a smooth, smal head. Thin mouthfeel, with a bitter malty taste. Fizzy, metallic. Lacking the expected smoothness or roasted oatiness. Like cola style Lager, or a bad Dunkel.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - DEC 22, 2003
Bottled. Dark brown with a slight tan head. Pleasant malt flavours but not outstanding. Quite a simple drop that’s a little too short on the palate to hold your interest.
