3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at the Porterhouse bars in Dublin many times over the years. This rating is for the latest pint I’ve had which was freshly tapped and in good condition (not always the case, unfortunately!). Light chestnut pour with thin off-white froth. Aroma is pretty muted, but gives herbs, wood, light nuttiness, caramel, slight vegetal note. Taste isn’t too complex: light caramel and woodiness with a touch of herb and an earthily bitter finish. Very brief finish. A bit thin and watery. Not a bad bitter - certainly a good option to have for an cheap afternoon sessionable pint in the otherwise bitter-free zone that is Dublin.
