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.

From tap at Borefts ’14. Pours hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma is a bit malty with some spices. Taste has spices, nettles, grass, soap and an over medium bitter finish. Medium body and carbo.

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...
