We created this beer to celebrate the opening of The Porterhouse in Covent Garden, London, in July 2000. We brewed a traditional style pale ale with a modern interpretation using a single variety of New Zealand hop, the Sticklebract.

Draught, smallish creamy head, clear deepish orange colour, aroma of citrus and flowers with a piney hint, flavour of citrus and white fruits with a soapy flowery bitterness. Quite hoppy and really nice to drink.

ACD (652) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAY 7, 2013
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.

Imaena (1855) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 6, 2013
Draught @ Proterhouse. Not a great bitter. Its fairly one dimensional and musty.

culchiem (2570) - Berlin, GERMANY - APR 2, 2013
Draught.. Amber with a small, off-white head. Fruity grainy aroma. Fruity flavour, sweet and slightly spiced with a mild bitter finish.
