BroSpud (1693) - , Massachusetts, USA - FEB 2, 2014
22oz bottle. Pours dark brown, almost black with a tan head. Big malt bomb of sweetness. As with most Lefty’s seemed kind of on the thin side. OK but not quite what I was hoping for,

Theydon_Bois (8710) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2012
Bottle at Chriso tasting, thanks Chris, 18/11/12. Hazed dark chestnut brown with a head that darts straight to the edge of the glass. Light roast malt nose, vegetal tones, a little caramel and some light smoke. Taste comprises lightly roasted malts, a little chocolate, molasses and liqourice, Medium bodied with softish carbonation that is a little spritzy lending towards a dry finish. There’s not too many US beers I have to file in the ’W’ draw but this is one of them. Whelmed!

Not too many of these around, especially from regional brewers. A bold addition to the local palate, this beer embraces its past and moves it carefully forward, inviting its drinker to explore its cousins and then come home to reaffirm how well Lefty’s has done.

A perfect English Porter...extremely smooth, great finish, nice rich coloring, with a nutty and mildly malty aftertaste. This is the best English Porter I have ever had.
