Müller Bräu Red Porter Ale
Brewed by Müller Bräu
Style: Red Porter Ale
My second tryout on the Müller Bräu range of drinks, that are sold in lovely six packs here in Switzerland. Had previously tried their Dry Stout which I absolutely loved, especially how smooth it was.
Founded in 1897 by the brewer Hans Müller, Müller Bräu is a small fourth generation family run brewery located in the town of Baden in North Switzerland. The brewery is still located in its original location, in fact the industrial town has more or less developed around the brewery which is handy as it always has newer, thirsty customers to cater for!
Innovative, while at the same time traditional, the brewery uses old style recipes of yesteryear and gets its water from its own spring.
Review: 33cl Bottle of Müller Bräu Red Porter Ale: ABV: 5.5% vol
A Red Porter Ale which is I guess, and correct me if I am wrong, similar to a red Irish ale.
On pour got a dark reddish colour, with a decent sized frothy head. Looks good, and also had some good carbonation.
On the smell I got malts, faint but nice, bit of a porter type smell.
On the taste, got nice big mouthfuls, malty.
Was smooth enough with a creamy sweetish aftertaste. Bit light the hops.
Very smooth, lovely taste, like it, a relaxing and very pleasant drink.
So overall, another decent beer from the Müller Bräu collective.
