Church Farm Brewery Brown’s Porter (4.2%)

Brown's PorterThis beer isn’t half bad, but I’d argue it’s more of a Bitter than a Porter.
For a start it pours a dark red conker colour rather than a chocolate brown.
The smell is a woody chocolate fruitiness, and the malts follow suit with a little bit of chocolate, some toffee and a mouthful of slightly tart stewed red fruit.
The hops are hedgerow and hazel leaves, brambles and dandelions.
There’s some lemon rind zing and a little wash of apple juice in the background too, before a clean bitter finish.
A very enjoyable beer, but a Porter?
You say tomato and I say…
