[Draft at Porterhouse, London] A deep red beer with a beutiful lasting creamy off-white head. The aroma is slightly sour malty with hints of roastyness. The flavor is sweet malty with loads of caramel notes, but also roasted malt and hops giving it a fresh bitter end. The mouthfeel is very creamy.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light nose, auburn color, nitro-tap creamy head. Quick light toasted malt with some caramel in the middle. Then a flash of bright hops comes and goes quickly, giving way to a metallic finish. Nice effect, but thin and not that clean overall.

The DM & Hotstuff’s European Honeymoon trip beer number 20. This draft brew from the Porterhouse brew pub in London poured a small sized head of foamy white colored finely sized bubbles that left behind an excellent lacing and a uncarbonated transparent red brown colored body. The aroma was mild with malt hop sweaty sock notes and the mouth feel was smooth with a mild malt hop flavor.

REddish copper colour with a white nitro head. Nice malty caramel and a faint slightly musty, lightly smoky aroma. Some peatiness. Flavour is malt-dominated, some sweetness, light fruitiness and a hint of bitterness. A slightly sour character as well. Quite refreshing.
