Tastes of malt and "My First Homebrew Kit". Below par beer, unless your buddy had told you he made it. Then it would be average. Color was light brown not really amber and taste was of a malty pale ale with zero hopps. Pass.

Bottle to snifter. Looks alright; amber with some lace. Smells and tastes average. Mouthfeel is the same. Kind of disappointing for a Portsmouth.

Bottle shared by TurdFurgison. Thanks, Eric! Pours a reddish-amber color with a short off-white head and a bit of lacing. The nose carries some amber malt and faint hops along with a pretty decent amount of diacetyl, which carries over into the flavor. Very disappointing. Buttered bread. I would not have this one again. Hopefully it was just an off bottle.
