IanAcceptable18 May 2006 Just a pale shadow of the delight that this was at the Folkestone Wetherspoon's the day before.

The Samuel Peto, Folkestone, Kent

IanExcellent17 May 2006 As good as the day before, just a whole load of hop and juicy fruit. So drinkable it should be illegal.
IanExcellent16 May 2006 Gold colour with lasting off white head. Really lovely hop aroma and flavour, reminds me of Summer Lightning when I first had it back in the 90s. Some rose petal and some raspberry fruit and then a gorgeous hop finish. Really lovely.
