3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask at The Harp, Covent Garden. Nice golden with an off white head, that, true to it being cask, disappears quickly. For a British beer this has a very distinctive hoppy aroma: loads of classic British hops makes one feel as if taking a stroll in a hop garden in Southern England.
On the palate the beer is lively (impeccably handled by the staff at The Harp), bursting with hops and a biscuity malty background. Super beer and one, that I’d love to have as my session beer for a night at the pub.

Pint at the Hope Carshalton. A: Golden, an initial haze cleared up to leave a clear beer, small head, a decent amount of lacing clung to the side of the glass. S: Strong hints of grapefruit. T: Sharp bitterness combined with hints of lime and grapefruit. M: Smooth, minimal carbonation, slipped down quite well. O: Lot’s of character and subtleness, outstanding session beer.

Bottle from M&S. Hugely disappointing. I've had this before on tap and quite liked it. This is quite awful. It's like they've tried to copy the nasty bottled Caledonian 80/-, succeeded, then gone to make it much worse. Nasty stuff.

Cellars Alehouse, Maidstone
Dull, dull, dull. It lacked flavour, body, aroma and was thin and watery. Mentioning hops in the name is a misnomer.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap. Aroma of citrus fruits and floral hops. Pours golden with white lace top. Tastes of tangerine mixed in flour with a bitter tang. The lingering bitterness belies the thin body and high carbonation. Gassy. And missing something.
