THIS IS NOT RETIRED!!!

Half-pint, hand-pulled on 24th Feb 2015: this Dandelion and Burdock Porter is not retired. Ruby hue to the reddy brown body, on top a creamy head in colour and texture. Sweetish feel to the brew with a definite flavour of that old English favourite pop: Dandelion and Burdock. Good body depth and overall a pleasant and easy drinking brew.

Gravity pour at cpfcbf. Pours dark brown. Aroma is slightly toasty, a little dark fruit, lemon. Light body, medium carbonation. Some light coffee, light caramel, touch of blackcurrant. Tastes a bit too tart - not right.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask at CPBF 2014. It pours deep brown with pretty much no head. The nose is earth, toast, plum pudding, spice, cherry cola, caramel, jam and dried fruits. The taste is toasty, tangy fruits, berry, plum skin, date, earth, toasty and raisin with a dryish finish. Touch if tang, suggests early infection. Medium body and soft carbonation. So-so.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at The Wellington, Birmingham. Poured a clear dark brown with a reddish hue and a frothy off-white head. The aroma is light fruit hop. The flavour is light bitter with a roasted malt light bitter "dandelion and burdock" fruit palate. Light bodied with soft carbonation. A pleasant ale and very drinkable but Iím not sure that Iím into fruity porters tbh. Those people that are will rate it higher than I did. Cask in 2014 so not exactly "retired".
