2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
33cl pull-off bottle bb10/2015. Nice amber-red pour, ok head. Watery intimations of buttered waffles, candied nuts and something slightly off give way to first pleasant caramel-on-nuts, caramelised butter, then harsh and full-on wood-resinous walnut bolster and earbutter bitters. An unbalanced pleasure, like many a St. Patrick’s Day.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Attractive dark auburn with small, tight, off-white head that reduces quickly but leaves some lacing and skim.
Nose is a mix of grassy hops and caramel malts. They persist on the palate along with nuts, cereal and slight farmhouse notes. Light body with slightly bitter finish, but not overwhelming so.
A modest but serviceable beer, which takes some note of American over-hopping tendencies but reins them into a more disciplined, drinkable structure. You could have a decent session while playing darts without being distracted by the brew.

330ml bottle. Clear, reddish brown colour with average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, off-white head. Grassy, hoppy aroma, hints of hay, freshly cleaned hutch, rabbit droppings, malty basis has an earthy touch of decayed bark. Taste is dry grainy, bready, crispbread, rye, cellar-related associations of cobweb, plastering, and mildew.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Si presenta di colore rosso con una schiuma pannosa e molto persistente. Piuttosto piatta al naso come da aspettarsi, ha un corpo leggero, consistenza acquosa, predomina il malto con note di luppolo ed erbe ad equilibrare e dare un tocco amaro. Una ale tipica.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a clear dark brown. Has a good head and excellent lacing. Taste is of dark fruits and sweet malts, but it’s very thin, not on of porterhouse’s best.
