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.

IanAcceptable19 Apr 2007 I agree with Steve, having a thick creamy head on a Kent beer is silly. Simple drinkable bitter. Not as good as the Tanglefoot so only a 3/5
SteveExcellent18 Apr 2007 one small thing spoilt this pint was it being served with a very tight sparkler took ages to get the pint poured the bar staff struggled with it I mentioned about taking the sparkler off but he said it's company policy to keep it on OK for Northern beers but a beer brewed in Kent!! still the beer was in excellent condition made easier to drink by the way it was served
