Man of Kent, Rochester. A lovely drop. Easy drinking and full of zest - like a liquid tangerine marmalade. Sank three pints of these easy. Good condition. Good ale. And I’m starting to enjoy this pub.

Cask conditioned handpump GBBF 2011. A golden beer with an off-white head. Sharp grassy hops. A very bitter taste. A bit of smoky fart. Hops are obvious but don’t work. Does try though.

chriso (7344) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2011
Cask (gravity dispense) at Egham Beer Festival on 21 April 2011. Seemed more amber in colour than gold. A little sulphur in the aroma. Quite sharp, citric hop presence. Some appley fruit. Firm and quite bitter. Nothing particularly extraordinary here but comes together as a solid, very drinkable and pleasantly refreshing brew. Does what it does (and no doubt what was intended) rather well.
