IanExcellent03 Jun 2005 Now I liked this a lot. I have had other Westerham beers and not been entirely impressed. mid brown tobacco/tea flavours, some good green hops with hoppy finish. I could easily do a session on this

Westerham Grasshopper Kentish Bitter

3.80% ABV.

A dark, malty bitter with nutty, roasted notes from the Chocolate Malt. This session bitter is hopped with Kent Target hops from the National Trust's hop farm at Scotney Castle and East Kent Goldings. A satisfying and flavoursome pint..

We have tried this beer 62 times.

We have given this beer an average score of Good to Excellent.
