Tasting Summary

These comments are the opinion of the individual reviewer and represent what they thought of the beer on a particular day in a particular pub. If a review is less favourable, it may be because the beer suffered somewhere in the supply chain between them and the brewery.

Philip PirripExceptional30 Nov 2012 Best of the evening by far. Excellent but one would find it hard to often fault Kent beers
IanExcellent30 Nov 2012 I kept seeing this pure clear gold beer with a thick frothy head being served to other clients, and thought "I must have a bit of that". Best beer of the evening, I had a half and then a pint. Cracking condition. Sweetish pale malt and then lovely hops over the finish. Pretty damn fine beer.

WhoScoreWhenNotes
IanExcellent17 Feb 2012 Clear pale gold with lasting white head. Looks good. Looks in good condition. Touch of yeast on aroma. Some citrus intense hop on aroma. Its a tasty strong blond ale. Good leafy hop on finish. Aroma has a little farmyard on the yeast. Hops on finish are good. Pretty good but I would rather have a touch more malt backbone. Hoppy as hell. Some sweet alcohol.
