"typical amber look...thin off white head. nutty malts in the aroma. flavor is more malts up front with a touch of bittering hops in the finish. definition of an average beer here."

PorterPounder (5704) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 3, 2010
Tallahassee, Fl. - New Leaf Market - 12 oz bottle. Medium copper pour, slight white bubbly head. Aroma is pretty much neutral with just a hint of fresh lake water. Flavor has a hint of spice, some faint caramel notes, and a bit of citrus to round it out. Decent bitterness. Mouthfeel is crisp and dry. Much better than its original name sake - which to this day sticks in my head as one of the most foul tasting beers I have ever put my lips to.

(12oz bottle thanks to Cavie) clear yellow-orange with a film and ring of off-white bubbles. Nose of melon, honey and caramel. Taste of caramel, light toastiness, citrus bitterness. Medium thin body with soft carbonation and a bitter linger.

So, to cut to the chase, I sum this one up with the sentence "not bad, but kinda plain". Details? you want details? OK, sure - caramel, toffee in the nose, caramel and toffee in the flavor, a little bit of hoppiness in the finish.
