Rather nice beer, and certainly one for a good session. Hard to describe acuratly in that from week the week the flavour varies - it is produced in small batches. That said it is never less that highly drinkable! Would recommend; and if starting a session in the Porterhouse, this is the one to start with!.

Cask@The Porterhouse, London. Amber coloured, mediumsized beige head. Aroma is big sweet fruity and flowery hops along with a bit of wood. Flavour is very big grassyness along with some fruits and caramel. Really nice one. Kind of reminded me of Beer Hunters MufloN ZPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 16/20
Good bitter -- I rather liked this offering. Toasty brown color with tons of bright white lacing. Caramel and butterscotch on the nose, a wisp of hops -- but these hops are built for the tongue, not the nose. The hops here are like a tiny bit of smoke from hot embers. Smoother and lighter than most bitters, but complex enough to get away with it. Caramel, treacle, sweet hay, activated bread yeast and then alcohol on the finish. Dry. A mixed bag, but the nicest brew I tried at Porterhouse. It must be improved from earlier experiences -- Iíd suggest revisiting this one.

UPDATED: JAN 27, 2009 In Dublin. Cask conditioned, so the small head was as expected (as was the low carbonation). Mild hops aroma. Surprisingly bitter with hints of spice.

[At Porterhouse, London] A brown beer with a small head. The aroma is sweet roasted with notes of caramel - and so is the flavor.

Better than the Dublin pint in almost every way - a bit more of everything, and better balanced.

Rich copper, nitro head. Good spicy bitter aroma, but thereís something not quite right, a bit unbalanced I suppose, about the taste. For example thereís a plastickiness to the malty body.

Cask at Covent Garden. Deep amber beer, thin head. Aroma is decent. Light molasses, herbs and a soft treacly character. Flavour is decent, light earthy malts. Lovely spicy/herbal hop aroma. Noble and spicy smelling. Quite unlike the other bitters Iíve had here. Lightly husky bitterness with a long lingering spicy bitterness.
