Pint at the Market Porter.

A: Bronze, clear, lively looking, medium well retained head, clear.

S: Noble hop, Hallertau? More Pilsner than Pale Ale.

T: Sour dough, lots of rye bread gave way to fruity bitterness.

M: Lots of carbonation, had a real snap to it.

O: Seemed stronger than it was, I would probably revisit. More of a European than American take on a pale ale.

On tap in London. White head. Golden orange color.

Very macro like. Grassy hop profile. Bready and biscuity.

I had a hard time with this one. It kind of reminded me of a steam ale.

Was works Christmas party
they actually had 'Craft' hardly the best tho, Meantime Pale
tho to me, it seemed like their IPA watered down
vast improvement however on last year, Black Sheep Ale
& the year before FuthaMucking Peroni (funnily enough in the same place as this year)
I would say competent
nicer aroma than flavour

Nose is muted, with a bit of earthy hops coming through from the EKG and a touch of American-style hops from the cascade. Not much there. Taste is not off, but dull and uninspired. A really average and forgetable pale ale.

330mL bottle, poured into a balloon snifter. The aroma is a dank pine with orange and grapefruit notes that turn towards caramel with a light floral touch, and a leathery note. It's a brilliant, clear bronze hue with a thin, white soap head that has only a light retention and no lace. The taste is a moderate, balanced bittersweet. The thin oily texture is supported by a fizzy carbonation. The medium light body contains notes of caramel and leather with secondary notes of herbs and citrus. It finishes crisp with citrus and pine and has an aftertaste of floral pine and leather that's mild and leaves and astringent and clean aftertaste.
