3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the London Porterhouse. An attractive and pleasingly sweet beer. Nitrokeg smooth, with a persistent thick head and a copper-red colour. Sweet, cereal aroma. Apple notes, some dispersed metal. A shifting flavour, mostly sweet, with malt and some dryness. Tasty, light and sweet. An original taste for me and a good one.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
UPDATED: OCT 14, 2004 Nitro Keg @ The Porterhouse, Covent Garden, London. Reddish amber. Mild sweetness with a faint nutty quality. Lingering and acceptable hop finish. Malt settles and improves as gas burns off, but then the hops start to taste a bit stewed. Not good. Chrissie says both this and the Oyster taste of chemicals. [2.4]
A nitro beer, so it has a false head and a plastic smooth palate. I hate nitro. It's a sin against beer. There is also an unpleasant wet cardboard flavour and a stale damp clothing aroma. This is a pig of a beer. [1.9]

Slighty bitter with a creamy head. A drinkable beer, but not too enjoyable. All the beers in the porterhouse sampler seemed average.

UPDATED: MAR 18, 2011 Copper. Faint nose. Mild taste, just an accent of toast and caramel. It’s okay.

Creaamy texture and mild bitterness, but most interesting to me were some of the fruity notes--raspberry and blackberry--over the top of suppressed hoppiness.

Was pretty good, but a bit timid in flavour, and for me had a bit of a buttery taste which i didn’t mind, but didn’t like.
