not so good. aroma is fairly bland, color is more brown than red, taste is like an american macro. the porterhouse continues to make sub par beers and is giving the wrong direction to other brewers in Ireland what their beers should be for success. glad to see something else besides guinness, smithwicks, and murphy’s, but this needs to be far better to gain any recognition for irish ales.

Pours a big frothy deep caramel brown, solid head retention. Smell was a big bitter, skunky almost pale lagery after pulling the cap. Taste was nothing like the smell, almost watery and light, but definate roasted malts. This is quite drinkable but nothing special.

Bottled, from The Drink Store, Dublin. Clear amber, huge firm head. Roasty and fruity. Light bodied with clean, rounded mouthfeel, slight notes of peat and ripe fruits. Light spicy bitterness.

Bottle. Nose of fruit and caramel, just a little nutty grit in there to help balance the sweetness (barely). Pours a Bitter-like copper with a great lasting rocky off-white head. Dry, bitter, nutty taste with fruit accents only toward the end and in the aftertaste, full body with layers of caramel and medium roast (hint of ash). Hops are low but productive.

pours a dark copper red with a nice little bubbly off white head aroma is light caramel malt and some euro hops flavor is the same as aroma but stronger and a little dry hop bite. the dry hops stick around a bit in the aftertaste and is real sessionable. probably the best irish red I have had to date, and yes expensive, but I would drink a few on st. patty’s day.

I had high hopes for this beer. I poured it, nice color with quickly disappearing off white head. Watery which would explain the 4.4% ABV. Slight taste of red goes down smooth. Wouldn’t be a bad daily drinker, but at $3.99 a 12 oz, I doubt ill be making the purchase again. Best part about this beer was the pull off cap!

[keg at the Porterhouse, Covent Garden] Standard Irish-style nitro’d red ale – thick, dark red appearance, hefty creamy white head. Served very cold and has tart dark flavours with almost no aroma. As it warms the hop bitterness comes out and some more developed malt character with it [28032010]

The aroma is pretty good but not exactly like most red ales ( not that that is a bad thing). There is plenty of grassy, hay like hops, a bit of yeast, and honey. The taste is like the aroma with malt of front and hop bitterness at the back end. The palate is thin for the style but smooth from carbonation. Overall a good beer but that’s about it.

Had this one at the Porterhouse in Temple Street A thick, creamy head, really delicious! A floral dominated aroma with a well-balanced bitternes to it. Good use of the hops. The aftertast last for a long while, and I could taste it a few minuttes after I was done. Not a bad beer at all, just not exceptional.

ambre, blanche malt caramel et pale, léger citron, fleur, corps est léger, note qcq fruit; pomme. Bouche est fine et vraiment légère. Bon pour le style sans vraiment sortir du lot.
