2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle:   Moderate brown, somewhat light, sudsy white head, minor, little lacing.   Soft toasted malts, a little bready and perhaps nutty and/or biscuity.   Overall, too soft.   Similar on the tongue, almost watery.   Very pale breadiness, faint caramel, touch of nuttiness and biscuit.   Lighter than expected.   English Dark Ale?   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Finishes a little malty, bready, with faint caramel.   Too pedestrian.

Color and aroma are weak for a porter. Flavor pretty decent though. Another that could benefit from more carbonation.

On tap at Pyramid Alehouse in Walnut Creek, CA. Pours brown with a beige head and light malty aroma. Taste is light, malty notes with caramel, bready and biscuit flavors with a short finish. Light, could use more flavor and strength

Bottle from a local grocery store. Tasted a lot like a Newcastle to me. Light bodied beer, nutty and roasted malt flavor. Decent brew.
