This dark Ruby Red Porter is brewed using Maris otter and black malt, combined with Fuggles and Golding hop’s makes this easy drinking porter with lots of character. Smokey and rich on the nose, coffee and toffee notes develop in the mouth.
This porter has a light, refreshing mouthful and a delicate rather than beefy body.

A Mes rate. Cask at the Rake.
Amber brown with no head. Apples and paint stripper. Decent malt but it’s not enough to save it. Faint bitterness in the finish. Blah.
