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.

The River Ale House, East Greenwich, Greater London

Philip PirripExcellent29 Dec 2021 Full on flavour hit. Very malty red rye ale style. Would have been better as last, not first, of the evening

The Dolphin, Canterbury, Kent

BrianGood21 Dec 2013 Quite good, some spice.
Martin the MildmanExcellent23 Dec 2012 Full bodied dark ruby bitter with sweetish toffee malt flavours and some fruity hop for balance. My score 16/20.
IanExcellent20 Dec 2008 Soft, orangey citrus flavours are amazing. Along with Dark Conspiracy this is quickly becoming a favourite of mine.
AndrewGood20 Dec 2008 This was creamy, smooth and tasted of wood resins. I liked it.
IanExcellent17 Dec 2008 Slightly creamier than in the Old Brewery Tavern. Lovely balanced hop, very good tangerine crystallised fruit. I now really look forward to having a Gadd's beer. Lovely fruit and hop on this. I had it as a 3.5/5 to start with but as the pint went down, I was really impressed. Yes, I would call this an excellent beer. Doesn't take much to make me happy, but a 4/5 beer in Canterbury does.

The Chambers, Folkestone, Kent

IanGood24 Dec 2007 Ruby/deep copper colour with lasting beige head. Rich malty aroma with earthy hops. Good condition in mouth, malt is a little syrupy, then soft earthy hops kick in . Bit of a sipper this one. Decent winter warmer. Fruits are juicy and the hop finish grows on you. Got better as the pint went down.
