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.

The Rose of England, Ramsgate, Kent

Jack WilliamExcellent11 Jun 2022 Only had a sip of this - but I agreed with my daughter that it was very good. Full, silky feel in the mouth.

Jack WilliamGood28 Jun 2019 One of two Gadd’s beers outside, hence a little warm - but fresh and tasty.

IanExcellent27 Jun 2009 Even Eddie thought this came out better than other years. Really very drinkable blond ale.

The Samuel Peto, Folkestone, Kent

IanGood23 Jun 2009 Haven't had it in a while, light refreshing, some decent hop, bit of tangerine. Good condition. Pretty good and really refreshing.

The Bull, Horton Kirby, Kent

AndrewAcceptable06 Jun 2009 Cardboard, tart, gooseberry flavours. Should have had my mate, No.7, instead

Hare (formerly Blean Tavern; Hare & Hounds), Blean, Kent

AndrewGood23 May 2009 Light soapy pale golden coloured beer. A light lager like taste with hints of lime. In fact, if I didn't know better I'd have though I was back in Plymouth 20 years ago drinking lager and lime.

The Mechanical Elephant, Margate, Kent

PedroExcellent16 May 2009 New one for me and very very very good !

BlairGood25 Jun 2008 Really interesting beer, very fruity. A beer like no other.

Rare Breeds Beer Festival 2008, Woodchurch, Kent

IanGood06 Jun 2008 Never one of my favourite Gadd's beers, but this was particularly good. Gold, lasting off white head. Cracking condition. Nice summer beer, nice hops, some cereal, bit of peach, rose petal. Such great condition and lovely peachy fruit.

Artillery Arms, Ramsgate, Kent

BlairGood05 Jun 2008 I've been looking forward to this. Really tasty, not my normal kind of beer.
