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.

Royal Victoria Pavilion, Ramsgate, Kent

DosserExcellent02 Nov 2020 Superb beer. Tastes even better in a gbg pub. And at 99p a pint.
DosserAcceptable04 May 2018 Got the lower price even though it seemed to have gone up to £3.15 from £2.55 2 days earlier.
DosserGood01 May 2018 30p cheaper than the ordinary abbot. The bargirl told me well done for choosing this and not being mugged off.

ChrisENot Tried27 Nov 2018 I must try this sometime.
IanGood17 Mar 2010 A little bit of butter on the aroma, but the malts got very biscuity towards the end of the pint and overall a very satisfying strong beer that hides it's higher ABV well.
IanGood09 Dec 2007 A little sticky and syrupy, but otherwise perfectly drinkable even at 6.5%

Philip PirripGood28 Apr 2018 A total stranger bought several of us a drink at the bar for no apparent reason then walked off

IanGood09 Nov 2007 Strong beer with a malty/nutty flavour. Deep amber in colour with lasting thin beige head. Raisin/cranberry aroma. Fruity malt. Alcohol is a little sickly. A good fireside warmer if a little sweet.
