A nod to Blur’s quintessential album and a classic beer style, the Victorian Porter, medium bodied with a balanced hop presence and lush roast notes on the nose & palate.

alexsdad06 (6567) - Ohio, USA - APR 17, 2014
Cask at City Tap House. Pours a clear reddish brown color with a thin creamy off white head. The aroma and flavor have a nice roasted malt and creamy chocolate character with a more subtle fruitiness that runs throughout. Some earthy hops add a hint of bitterness to the finish. This had a smooth mouthfeel and medium body. Served at the right temperature made this a nice surprise for the evening.
