    Every now and then I go to the local Tesco and pick up a few bottles of beer I have never tried before. Last night I saw a Tesco Finest Traditional Porter and decided to try it. To be honest it was the first and only Porter I have ever tried. Now I have to admit I loved it. I know that the Tesco Finest Traditional Porter is probably at the low end of quality Porters. I was wondering if anybody has a good Porter AG recipe to try. Or know of any other good porters I can be drinking while I wait to get the ingredients?

    Not sure about recipes; there might be some in the recipes section, but I can definitely recommend a couple of porters:

    Samuel Smith's Taddy Porter
    Meantime London Porter

    The Tesco Finest is a bloody good porter, (brewed by Harviestoun) I've had meantime Porter as well A good porter but I think the tesco one is the better drink.

    I used to love Whitbread Porter but havn't seen it for years.

    I think whitbread stopped brewing porters a few years ago following one of their (many) brewery rationalisation programmes.

    I find that most of the beers i brew these days are porters because i love the flavour. The only problem is leaving a brew long enough to condition long enough in the bottle before drinking them :roll:

    Meantime's porter is a bit different as it contains a chunk of smoked malt.
