@ Market Porter. Slightly amberish brew. The aroma is, sadly, a bit off with pedio and sourness. The taste is more chocolatey, with a hint of tartness.

Copper color and a nice head. Aroma of caramel and fruit. The flavour is somewhat thin, but I sense notes of roasted malt and a bit of fruit. The bitterness is reasonable OK. 1533

red/brown in colour. Aromas are biscuit malts and toffee. This is quite a dry beer with some toffee and fruit character. Shame it is one dimensional. I would be bored if I had to drink more than a pint of this.

Cask conditioned Handpump Edgar Wallace London A dark brown to mahogany coloured beer with a whitish loose head. The aroma has some sweet and sour treacle. There is treacle and licorice in the mouth. A bit over sweet but then some soap comes in. An odd tasting beer. Not 100% sure this is as intended.

UPDATED: SEP 14, 2004 Handpump.Rather malty with some sweetness on the finish. Pleasant enough for a pint or two, but a little heavy for my taste. Not a session beer.

A Mes rate: Bottle at the Windmill in Ramsgate.
They don’t sell this at the Windmill, I sneaked it in the back in my rucksack just in case all they had was bobbins and guess what?...
Mid orange brown with a slim off white head. Aroma is sweet malt, some dried fruit and a delicate sourness. Flavour is more of the same with a nice hit of coffee and hops at the finish. Pleasant notes of chocolate orange too. Interesting but far from a show stopper.
