Wadworth - Swordfish5.00ExcellentFirst time I have drunk this beer. Good example of an ESB.
Harvey's - Sussex Best Bitter4.00AcceptableThis is not the beer it was. Not so long ago I rated it highly but recently I find it has become too sweet. Starts well but fades away after a couple of mouthfuls. Shame.
