ChrisEExcellent05 Jun 2011 I am tempted to give this five stars. The gossip in the pub was that this beer had gone through an iffy period, but this beer was spot on, and the doubters agreed with me after trying some. The beer then ran out, and I had the last one which was only slightly less good than the previous pint. I was about to change to Alton's Pride when a new cask of Pale was put on, and wow, this was fantastic.

Stephen HarrisPoor21 Jan 2012 I know and like this beer, but this was not at all right. A nice pale colour, but a bit flat and a bit thin and the hopping struggling to shine through. And, oh dear, is that a faint whiff of acetic acid? Too long in the pipes perhaps. I would have returned it had I been on home territory.

Kent Brewery, Birling, Kent

AndrewGood01 Oct 2011 A bit rich for me but a solid golden pale ale with striking hops.

Martin the MildmanExcellent18 Jun 2011 New strength from its new home and an excellent pale ale. Slight sulphour on the nose, then an explosion of citrussy hops with some malt balance too. My score 16/20.
