2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask @ O’Connell’s
Forms a lasting head(!) Aroma is quite nothing. Perhaps some cardboard, hay and fruits. Flavour has bready malt, some hay, fruits and hints of hops. A bit sour and leathery feeling with lactic acid. Not good.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a golden colour is pretty standard for its category. Not too much to to get excited about: Lightly hopped, with a small hint of fruit in the flavour and mildly citric aroma. It is pleasantly drinkable, without really taking the palate by storm.

Cask (Angleterre, Helsinki)
Rich orange, small loose head. Slightly eggy farty aroma. Carbonation low, refreshing palate. Huge light grain body, some touch of ginger. Lovely and refreshing and grainy - great to session I’m sure.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Yellow golden coloured body with a thin white head. Aroma of light hops, malt and a very mild citrus scent. Light-bodied; Sharp hoppiness up front with a potent malt backbone and a very noticeable bit of sugar. Aftertaste shows a bit more well-rounded complexity, with the hops coming out more. Overall, a decent beer and very nice for me to try! I sampled this beer on cask at the Market Porter in Borough, London, England on 11-March-2008.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A Mes rate: cask at the Market NO Porter.
Seriously how can they have porter in their name and so rarely actually have one on??? Pale golden brown with a faint white film. Decent fruity malt aroma. Bland citric flavour with some late berry fruits. Inoffensive but mind numbingly dull.
