I was sent out for fish 'n' chips,and fancied some Maidstone beer on the way.Alas, no Goacher's.Busy, mainly with diners, on a Saturday evening.

Rockin Robin - Reliant Robin (superseded by 3.7% version)4.20GoodIn the evening gloom, I miss-read the ABV of this beer, and thought it well bodied for 3.4%.Oat straw; a bit sweet for me,though peach and spice came through towards the end.
