Biddenden Vineyards "Taste the best of Produced in Kent", Biddenden, Kent

WittendenExcellent05 Jun 2011 I've not enjoyed Nelson's bottled beer, but this, on gravity , though probably "bright", but who's counting?-was a good amber best bitter, with a refreshing hop bite, balancing a fruity input from the malts.

AndrewAcceptable24 Aug 2007 Black brown beer servered a bit too cold. Hints of rum & raisen with a slickly malt and earthy hop-bite on the finish.

Kent Beer Festival 2007, Canterbury, Kent

IanAcceptable21 Jul 2007 Chestnut, thin beige head. Lacking a bit of condition. Some decent malts, nice hop on end. Would be better in top form as malts are great. Could be good, but dullish on this form
