The Phoenix, Canterbury, Kent

AndrewExceptional09 May 2008 Golden yellowy-brown beer. Poured with a huge amount of creamy-bubbles (so tight sparkler I guess). Fantastic beer. It smelt of wonderful grassy meadows. It tasted of buscuity malt with hints of mellow orange peel and with a lovely strong leafy (slightly mottled grapefruity) hop that just stayed in the mouth. This was one of the best pints I’ve had, ever. Could have drunk it all day. Wish I had.

The Phoenix Tavern, Faversham, Kent

IanAcceptable26 Aug 2006 Hazy copper with lasting off white head. The landlord pulled off the first pint, so I guess this was a fresh barrel on. Yeast and good fruit salad aroma. Fruit carries on into mouth with moderate intensity and then good biting hop finish. Bit of green apple as probably not ready yet, but the malt underpins the beer. Give it a day and this would be excellent.

The Royal Oak, Brookland, Kent

IanGood24 Jul 2005 Copper/orange colour, lovely malts and good balance on this well made beer. Caramel and orange flavours leading to a good hoppy finish
