Ordinance City Brewery – Claymore Porter 4.5%
This is a black potter ale with aromas of toasted malt and rich fruits, it has a strong toasted malt and rich roast coffee taste notes moving to a blackstrap molasses bitter aftertaste. A good porter style ale.
This Ashcott based Somerset brewery bases its brews on historical military ordinance, influnincing thier names and beer labels. I came across their ales at the Burnham-on-Sea Food Festival, where they had their beers packed in wooden ordinance boxes carrying through their brewery theme.
