The County Hotel, Ashford, Kent

IanGood18 Feb 2010 Malty blond beer, with just a hint of tea flavour to it. I must admit I did prefer the Ice Queen this has a little diacetyl on the aroma. I can't get enough of those Chinook and Cascade hops
ChrisEExceptional17 Feb 2010 One of my favourite beers, and this was superb.

IanGood20 Jul 2007 Gold, off white bubbly head. Rather attractive aroma. Very drinkable, excellent fruit. Good range of citrus fruits. Good condition. I liked it. Slightly flinty, but different from your usual bitter.
