3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A Mes rate. Nitro keg at the Porterhouse.
Clean amber brown with a thin off white head and and lace. Decent delicate smoky red ale. Hints of leather and tobacco, reasonably well hopped with the resulting good level of lingering grassy bitterness. Pleasantly clean and drinkable. Would maybe prefer a little bit more smoke but it works well overall. Nice beer.
