3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

Tap at the source in Ramsgate, England. A bit hazy golden pour, bubbling foam. Nose: fresh grass harvest, weed, incense a bit. Very intensive! Mouth: clean pale body, sweet grassy notes! Great one!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Membranously lacing, snow white, slowly dissipating, frothy head, lightly hazy deep orangey golden robe. Pleasant aroma of biscuit or even ’roux’, sweet clover and other field flowers, dried lemon zest, dried apricot, melting butter, bitter honey, dried grass, some green tea. Soft fruity onset, apricot and unripe pear accents, touch green berries, softish carbo, pleasantly biscuity malt sweetness in the middle with a lightly grainy edge, evolving into a hoppy finish, thoroughly but not harshly bittering, bit tonic water-like and very floral, touch herbal too, with juicy malt sweetness piercing through; very quenching. Classically conceived English bitter with IPA-ish traits, in which the East Kent Golding come to full glory. I love this type of old school English ales if they are well made, and that is certainly the case here.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
From cask @ Borefts 2014. A near clear golden one, not much of a head here. Smells like old bread actually. Really really bready and perhaps a little grainy as well. Kraftfôr, hints of green apple. Strange stuff. What kind of been is this? Not one I like, that’s for sure. Really grainy in the taste and it’s kinda mouthdrying/astringent. Slightly harsh. Old hops, lots of Kraftfôr and dusty hay in the taste. Nope. Did not like this. 26.09.2014

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
