This was my first Milk Porter and I wish I could evaluate the style but the lingonberry aftertaste was so strong that it really was hard to evaluate. This is a smooth beer with a very sour, but not hoppy, aftertaste making for a unique drinking experience. Rett and I sampled this right after work while sitting at Town Hall’s patio on a beautiful summer day so that may skew my review more positively. I might order this beer again next time they have it but certainly not two in one sitting.
When Josh and I got to Town Hall on Thursday we were disappointed to see two of the three infusion beers crossed out on the menu. Fortunately, they still had the Lingonberry. It reminded me a bit of Surly 2, but definitely less potent. Where Surly 2 made me scrunch my face like the Sour Patch Kids, this really smooth. More my style. I guess this was the milk porter at work? Anyway, it was enjoyable, but not enough that I wanted two of them. So we moved on to Life Double Red Ale.
