Richard Fella, 33, md of an IT company in Cambridgeshire The name London Porter reminds me of London Pride which is a bitter I like. I'm not particularly impressed with the packaging which is nondescript and certainly wouldn't stand out on the shelf. The look and smell of it is promising but the taste is so disappointing. It's a good dark colour with a nice sized head and it smells really nice, though it seems a bit sweet. However, I don't like the taste of it at all. It's very sweet, slightly fizzy and unpleasantly thick ­ which tends to happen when there's a high alcohol content. The aftertaste is just like liquorice. It smells so much nicer than it tastes. I couldn't drink a whole bottle of it unless I was rather pissed at a party and that was all there was left. Rating out of 25 ­ 6 {{DRINKS }}
