Tried this beer on 28 April 05 by half-pint at the Porterhouse London branch, near Covent Garden.
Appearance: it comes in dark-amber to reddish colour, with very fine carbonation and milky-white, extre...mely dense and thick beerhead which lasts throughout the drink. Simply remarkable!
Smell: light-fruity note and hints of wheat...quite simple, and it had to be left for quite a while for more noticeable scent to come out. The serving temprature is way too low!
Taste: the problem is the same: temp. too low. And it makes the beer taste quite flat at first. I waited for a while and flavour of malts and mild hops followed later on.
Aftertaste: light-medium bodied ale; the mouthfeel was very clean, even crisp, with some mild and pleasant hoppyness lingering in the mouth; not long lasting though.
Drinkability: my overall impression of this red ale is that it is served way...too cold. The temp. certainly doesn't help because in my point of view, a good ale has to be served in a slightly chilled or just cool condition for the nose and body to be revealed. Alas, for this potentially pleasant half-pint I simply didn't have unlimited time to wait for it to warm up. A real shame.
Serving type: on-tap
