@ The Flower Pot, Maidstone during the summer of 2012. O yes. Juicy citric hops in a pale biscuit malt. A winner. The beer lacks character, but is damn tasty.

Clean amber glowing body with frothy white head. Forest and pine hops, bit of Grapefruit, but all within safe limits. Biscuit y base, pretty nice. Taste is more expressive though, with string bitterness and a light cookie base malt. Bit thin, but drinks well. Modern interpretation of a classic bitter. Great execution. Good palate cleanser, I reckon, too. (Half pint at The Sussex Arms)

Keg at the Hare and Billet, Blackheath. Cloudy amber pour with a white head. Citrus and pear aroma. Quite a fruity nose. Herby, citrus flavour. Quite a pronounced hop bite. Hop laden finish. Good.

An OK pale. The hops were slightly dull and astringent and there was a soapy sulphurous taste in the background. Perhaps it hadn’t been kept well.

July 2013 - Keg at the ’Howl at the Moon’. Short review due to session. Cloudy yellow, foamy white head. Smell is toned down and taste is watery. Tastes very much like a beer that has been watered down. Some nice aspects coming through but very subtle. (3)
Nov 2013 - Cask at JDW Victoria Station. Clear amber orange with a scummy white head. Smells of cheesy hops. Body is light and carbonation low. Taste - some fruit but completely overpowered with cheese. OK. Very different to the last time. (3.1)
