3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught at Porterhouse Temple Bar. I have to say that the atmosphere of the bar might have positively affected this rating. Deep copper brown w/ thin off-white head. Scent is very toasty and pleasant. Flavor is toasty, fruits, and slightly bitter finish. Very enjoyable beer.
