From bottle (thanks to Ang) on 5 November 2010. Gold colour. Plenty of hops in evidence. East Kent Goldings in use here? Quite grassy but also earthy. Well balanced and nicely drinkable. Not a blockbuster but very enjoyable.

500ml bottle. Pours pale amber, clear, with persistant white head. Aroma is full on East Kent Goldings, with marmelade, honey, pine, grassy and floral but more pronounced than on a usual Kentish ale given the green hops. A touch thin but nicely hop forward. Some sweetness and a decent bitter finish. Pretty good for this style of beer.

Bottle 50cl. Gusher. Cloudy pale amber, small foamy off-white head, mostly diminishing, fair lacing; aroma is malty, peach, apricot, straw, barnyard; taste is medium sweet and bitter, fruity, malty, spruce, long duration; medium body, oily texture, average carbonation, dry bitter finish, herbal and earthy notes, bit husky; difficult to rate, has good bitterness but there is a hint of vomit in its taste that I don’t like.

Une ESB faite avec du East Kent Golding de chez Humphrey, houblon récolté vert et non séché. Bière non filtrée, non purifiée, de 4,8 % abv, en formule 50 cl. (Merci). Bière à boire jeune. Mon exemplaire est à date en fin septembre 2015. Couleur doré foncé très brillant, à la clarté nette, pure. Bulles moyennes partout en colonnes droites bien vives. Mousse blanche à gros flocons, un peu collante. Arômes de malt grillé et cara, houblon du Kent, chaume d’été. 1ère bouche souple à la belle entame malt/houblon. Arrière-bouche à l’amertume assez piquante, vive. 2ème où l’équilibre vient déjà. Arrière-bouche à l’amertume très riche de nuances. Superbe. 3ème au magnifique ensemble malt/houblon. Arrière-bouche fraîche et pourtant très dense. Longueur avec de nouvelles découvertes : fruits blancs, bois blanc, tabac blond. Jambes assez collantes .. quel dommage !! Levure bien faite, douce, précise. Alcool très efficace, il œuvre constamment à montrer les qualités. Finale tout à fait remarquable. CONCLUSION : très belle et grande bière, qui ne perd qu’un petit peu pour ses jambes collantes. On peut la considérer comme le pendant anglais de la Hommelbier de Watou. Ici sur l’île de Thanet. Il faudra donc proposer un jumelage Watou – Thanet. Quel joli nom à l’époque du net...

50cc bottle. Pours blond with white head. Malty with some green hops (very discrete). Finishes long lasting bitterness. Expected more...

Drunk from 50cl bottle bought at deliciously different in Belgium. Lovely hoppy golden ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
