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.

WhoScoreWhenNotes
WittendenGood06 Mar 2010 I remember Elgoods bitter as one that when you drank it in a session it would cut through the taste of the others. Perhaps not now, but still a good malty east anglian bitter.

The Thomas Ingoldsby, Canterbury, Kent

WhoScoreWhenNotes
AndrewGood28 Oct 2006 Brown nutty biter with a soft mouth feel and slighly peatyness to it. Nice bitter nutty finish

The Samuel Peto, Folkestone, Kent

WhoScoreWhenNotes
IanAcceptable20 Oct 2006 Attractive chestnut colour with lasting creamy beige head. Some light malt and some earthy hop on the aroma. Not a huge aroma. Bit of malt in mouth, but a bit watery too and lacking in flavour. OK, if too watery

The Haywain, Bramling, Kent

WhoScoreWhenNotes
BrianAcceptable30 Sep 2006 Last one of the day. It was mid brown with no head. Spice and fruit aroma, but with a thin finish. Not bad, but unremarkable.
