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.

WittendenExcellent31 Oct 2009 My first decent pint since it was repatriated:is it as good as it was in those few oases of ale in Co Durham in the 70s?Who knows, but it definately had depth to it, with floral notes that rebelled against the overwhelming dryness of some of these golden ales!
