Beer Review #13
Appearance: The beer pours into the glass a
reddish dark caramel color, that is
clear with a lasting foamy head.
Taste: Semi Sweet taste with a toasted and smoke smell and taste.
The sweetness comes from a very mild maple hint.
Mouthfeel: It has a soft feel and surprisingly light for a dark beer.
The carbonation is a little harsh and finishes slightly
Beer Type: English Porter's are a unique style of beer. They are meant
to be dark in color, malty with a roasted flavor, and be slighlty
bitter. For a mass produced beer it fits fairly well.
Drinkability: Slight weight of the beer as well as the bitterness works
against its drinkability. It would work well with food.
Its a nice beer to use in a recipe that calls for a dark beer.
Scoring 19/25 Slightly beer than average. It would be one i would try in larger
quantities with some friends at a pub.
