UPDATED: AUG 5, 2007 Nov, 2006 Market Porter, Southwark Refreshing pale malt with a delicate white lilly hop - flowery and breezy. A damn good, clean and flavoursome session bitter. [3.1]anders37 (26657) - Malmö, SWEDEN - OCT 2, 2006

[Cask at Volunteers Arms, GBBF 2006] A hazy orange beer with an orange head. The aroma is sweet hoppy with a slight hint of sulphur. The flavor is sweet malty with a good hop presence, but also light notes of nuts. TBone (17580) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 26, 2006

Dark golden honey color, small creamy head. Good fruity hoppy nose - some pine needles. Good hoppy, fresh "pine wood" bitterness. Very good session ale.
Cask half-pint at NERAX on 5/3/06.
Quickly receding white head forms a large ring of bubbles on the edge, while the liquid is a highly clear, soft yellow-golden color, with an almost very light moss-green tint and some sharper brass tones.The nose has just the barest hint of lively fruits, tucked under a doughy yeast with some very bare pale malts. There is a light dose of sweetness, but it is fleeting. Hops also show some dustiness, though for English hops, they are quite clean and well-stated, tickling the senses somewhat and providing more than average aroma strength for a very light golden ale. No diacetyl here, that’s for sure. Opens up rather watery, as expected, with dusty, plant-like hops running in to the palate quickly. Slowly, but surely, some very minor citrus notes show up, adding some light bitterness and almost a tea-leaf-like note of dryness. My biggest issue with the flavor, however, was that it seemed rather worty. Bits of very low gravity wort sweetness, slightly sticky-chewy, diluted by water. Still, for all that, the hops are gentle and delicate, adding just a touch of bitterness. Almost becomes a beer just as an afterthought. Apropriate, engaging, light carbonation, with no looseness or thinning. Certainly no alcohol. Take my "tastes worty" with a grain of salt because I know nothing about true English beers.

Cask conditioned - handpump - Market Porter Borough London. A light copper coloured beer with a slight lemon hop aroma. This carries through to the taste. A nice easy drinking beer but needs more body. jfm (1724) - Holbæk, DENMARK - JAN 5, 2006

Cask conditioned, GBBF 2005:
Citrus aroma. Some hops gives the beer a quite refreshing bitterness. The same happens in the palate. Nekronos (4175) - Xalapa, MEXICO - NOV 9, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 8, 2006 Really an ale, was not bad, was nice the foam, the colour is really good, a little creamy perhaps the impression is given by the colour. One of the favourites among Scottish ales fans.
