Fairly quiet early evening. Very pleasant atmosphere in the pub. All beers though were about 2 degrees too warm for some reason.
Adnams - Broadside4.70ExcellentReally good. Lovely oaky rich caramel and light chocolate flavours. Slightly too warm but the beer held up well to this.
Ramsgate Brewery (Gadds') - No. 54.40GoodExcellent condition. The slight warmth took a bit away from it making it a bit too syrupy.
Canterbury Ales (sometimes badged as Canterbrew) - Kentish Best3.70GoodGood condition. Rough hops and malt. Touch too warm.
Tonbridge - Easy Street Pale3.90GoodExcellent condition. Rich hoppy and peppery. But the warmth took a bit off the edge.

Kent - Session Pale3.70AcceptableBit disappointed with this, rather tired (the beer that is)
