WittendenExcellent27 Mar 2010 Always good to see this:grainy with a curranty hoppy finish
AndrewAcceptable24 Dec 2007 Funny one really. Tasted a bit orangy with hay. Ian thought it was off but I don't think that was it.
IanPoor24 Dec 2007 Couldn't finish this and nor could Andrew or Martin. Plus Martin had to take his Flowers Original back as it was off.
AndrewAcceptable19 Jul 2005 This always has a soapy creaminess about it that I find somewhat off-putting but the hops and low level malt was good.

AndrewGood19 Nov 2006 Even though this was the last coughings from the barrel it was good. Much more malt in the flavour than usual and the hops were much more earthy and brown leafy but I put all this down to it being bottom of the barrel.
IanExcellent28 Oct 2006 One of the nicest pints of Skrimshander that I've had in ages. Lovely red fruit malts/rich. But with balancing earthy hop. Classy

BrianExcellent10 Aug 2005 Lovely dark brown bitter, best pint I've had for a while
IanExcellent16 Jul 2005 Although this beer was not on yet, Ruth behind the bar let me have a pint, which was very kind of her. Raspberry fruit and good hops. Gorgeous top of the barrel beer

BrianGood12 Apr 2008 Clear, mid brown/golden. Thin, bubbly disappearing head. A touch too cold to begin with, but a good fruit/malt balance. A bit watery in the mouth and missing the sweet floral notes it used to have.
AndrewAcceptable23 Feb 2008 This wasn't off but it certainly didn't taste like Skrimshander. I don't know if it was bottom of the barrel but it tasted like a cross between Skrimshander and Old Peculier. Shame as Skrimshander's usually lovely

AdrianExcellent17 May 2007 Light and refreshing
BrianAcceptable17 Mar 2007 OK. Too cold to start and a bit flat and lifeless, but there was still a hint of the usual citrus bite and bitter hop. OK but I've had a lot better.
AndrewGood17 Mar 2007 Nice and hoppy with some malt. Must have been the end of the barrel as they took it off soon after they poured mine

AndrewExcellent07 Jan 2006 Rich lychee and subtle strawberry flavours made this well balanced beer a treat. The finish was good and bitter.
AndrewGood19 Nov 2005 Good bitterness and that rich Hopdaemon taste. Perhaps one for a hot day.
BrianExceptional19 Nov 2005 At risk of repeating myself, but this is great. A full citrus flavour that lingers. Charlie said it had a bit of a haze to it but it seemed perfect to me.

BrianAcceptable27 Aug 2005 Seemed OK, maybe a little tired, but it turned out to be the last pint from the barrel
BrianExceptional27 Aug 2005 Second pint out of the barrel! Full of flavour, creamy in the mouth and fantastic hoppy bite in the aftertaste. In my opinion, exactly what a Kentish beer, served in the heart of Kent should taste like.
AndrewExcellent27 Aug 2005 Hoppy with a smooth malt finish. Very drinkable
AndrewAcceptable20 Aug 2005 Bit cloudy because he was having problems with the beer engine but it tasted its usual soapy rich hoppiness.
