3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Reddish-amber. Rich caramelly nose. Toasty, fresh, with lots of caramel. Body and finish like a New World micro lager, but that’s not a bad thing because it leaves a lot of sugars and caramels for warmth.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at The Porterhouse, Covent Garden. Darkish copper colour. For me, the positives were compromised by intrusive diacetyl on both nose and palate. Some clammy, sweaty, notes in the aroma too. A bit less butterscotch in the flavour, but there’s a rather odd cream soda character to replace it. Gets drier and more fruity on the finish but the damage was done by then.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Keg @ Porterhouse. You don’t run into new viennas every day...The pour’s a deep reddish brown color. Dark indeed! Medium off-white head. The aroma’s fairly faint. Some toast, a bit of nut and caramel. The taste is heavily grainy. Loads of toasted brown bread flavors. Light chocolate, maybe some red fruit. The grain flavors really overpower whatever subtlety may exist in this beer. Medium body, a bit sticky. Overall, not a great effort. Ragged stuff.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft @ brewery tap, Temple Bar. Clear copper, not much of any head and becomes flat later. Aroma is a touch buttery and caramel with cookie malt. Soft mouthfeel. The malts are biscuity and mouthfeel is oily. Not as refreshing as advertised but still a well-made brew.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap - Porterhouse Central - Dublin; Dark brown colour, small head, nice caramel-toffee aroma with malt in there also. Quite a sweet flavour - definite toffee flavour, with a dry finish, not a bad brew, could potentially drink quite a few in one sitting.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Caramelly nose, deep copper brown color, low head. Toffee notes, but some butter in the middle. Crisp end without being bitter. Too much butterscotch, but otherwise an OK brew.
