SilkTork (5189) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 4, 2005
Maidstone Beer Festival, 2005. This is a beautiful drinking beer. The flavours are clean, fresh, soft and very inviting. The delicacy is breath-taking, yet the flavours wrap around the tongue like a soft quilt. This is really what drinking beer is all about. A lovely day, a lovely setting and beautiful soft flavoursome drinking beers in the prime of condition. Perfick.

harrisoni (13591) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 4, 2005
Gravity cask at Maidstone BF. Used to have this a lot at The Mogul in Dover but haven’t had it in a bit and had almost forgotten how good this beer is. Terrific 3.8% session bitter. Dark gold really nice intense hop aroma, with some aramel and a bit of fruit to carry it through with some red berry fruit flavours and a crisp enjoyable hoppy dry finish. Excellent

[Cask at GBBF 2004] An orange beer with a huge beige head. The aroma is sweet and fruity. The flavor is sweet with a nice bitter end.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - AUG 17, 2004
Cask Conditioned, at the GBBF, 2004.
Sulphurous but just a bitter. We seemed to have run aground with the beer choices at this point. Not that chris_o and I minded particularly but it would have been nice to try some more varied beer. My fault I should have been at the festival for more then one afternoon.

UPDATED: APR 24, 2005 I found this a little disappointing. I suspect it wasn’t perfectly conditioned. Pale gold colour. Sulphur, and not much else, on the nose. Dry palate, but not that hoppy or bitter - just a touch of citrus. Clean finish, but a bit soft. I’m sure I’ve enjoyed this more in pre-RB days. Overall, an average session bitter. Cask, GBBF 2004, day 1. (6/3/6/3/11 - 2.9) RE-RATE 22/04/05. Cask (handpump), The Black Boy, Winchester. Much juicier and fresher than my previous tasting, which bears out my suspicion that it wasn’t in peak condition when I had it before. Quite fruity and flowery aroma. Plenty of hop bite coming through, but mellow mouthfeel. Slipped down very easily. Nice. Previous rating discarded.

Mungo (2472) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2004
UPDATED: APR 27, 2006 Apr 06 Gravity Cask @ The Flower Pot Inn. One last visit to the Flower Pots whilst cheriton beers were still available and some had been pending a re-rate. An excellent session beer combining delicate flavours with lots of drinkability. 4.2
Oct 05 Cask conditioned @ Black Boy, Winchester. Perfumey floral hops and juicy malt. Quite simple but everything works together excellently. 3.8
Mar 04 Cask-conditioned at Flower Pot Inn. Flowery hop aroma with faint grassy and fruit notes. Hoppiness continues in the mouth with almost sweet full malty mouthfeel and suprisingly little bitterness. A good session bitter which could have done with a touch more bitterness for me. Must be sampled fresh. 3.6
