johninmelb (1124) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2013
A reasonable bitter this. Nothing hugely special - not up there with, say, a Fullers ESB - but a serviceable strong ale. No point deducted for the backronym (they don’t openly profess to believing the etymological myth of ’port out starboard home’) but a point or two dropped for the IPA tag. Yes, this is what IPAs once were, but brewing has moved on and any modern brewer must really recognise this. So, a decent bitter, strong malts and well-balanced bitterness, not an IPA, and bottom line a workmanlike beer that won’t change your life.
