Complex aroma but predominantly hoppy. Crystal clear when poured, amber coloured with small head. The hoppiness continues into the taste. A very good drinking beer

UPDATED: OCT 3, 2008 July, 2003: Gravity Cask, Kent Beer Festival 2003. Yeasty, bready aroma with a touch of sulphur. Clean, light taste with hints of apple leading into a dry lemony citric finish. [3.4]
Oct, 2003 The brewery, Ramsgate. Sweetish and tangy. Slightly muddled. Hops are earthy & slightly perfumey. Not as impressed on this second visit. [2.9]
Jan, 2005:The brewery, Ramsgate - with joet. Nice clean gulpable session bitter. Pear drops in the finish. [3.1]
Oct, 2008 500ml Bottle from Asda Stunning. Very drinkable - great gulps of fresh fruit and smacks of healthy hops. Ooooh, this is good. Light, refreshing, delicate, yet full of yummy flavour. Very moreish, very tasty - oh, I could drink this all night. Wonderful stuff - really wonderful! [4.7]

Bottle conditioned. This was a surprise to me as I’d convinced myself somehow it was a copper malty ale. It was, in fact, straw coloured. The smell was of hay and the taste of straw and lemon peel. There was also a hint of Smirnoff Red Vodka in the body. All in all an excellent drink.

The No. 3 is a strong pale ale, with an ABV of 5% that pours a light amber with a rocky white head and a fair amount of fizz. The nose was rather citrusy, but also very spicy, with slight floral notes, as you would expect from East Kent Goldings and Fuggles. Beneath the vibrant bitterness of the beer is a very gentle toffee sweetness, which smoothes out the beer, making it is deliciously refreshing.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bold aroma of Kent hops. This is a much improved beer with much more outspoken hopping than last year. Reminded me of the better Swale beers of yesteryear. Highly recommended.

Mid-blonde with fluffy white head and significant amount of yeast sediment. Spicy goldings hops on the nose give a pineapple and wheat spice body with aslightbitter bite and touch of digestive biscuit in thefinish. Gentle carbonation and retains headwell.

Cask at brewery in Ramsgate, Kent When this is at its best it is a hoppy creamy strong ale of real class and extremely drinkable. When it isn’t at its best then it isn’t. I like Eddie’s beers though, they show character and are well made

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: FEB 28, 2007 Bottled, blind tasting session. Nice grassy and herbal aroma. Yellow color, hazy, white fine head, good lace. Light maltsweet, pretty bitter and even more bitter in the finish, grass, hints of citrus. Dry mouthfeel in the very finish. Highly drinkable although pretty bitter. Lovely beer. Note: Had another bottle but same production date a few months later. This one was very much disappointing. The grassy aroma was replaced by dust and cardboard. The flavor had become quite neutral but the bitterness stayed making it a dull beer.

Cask at Fleur De Lis, Sandwich: Hazy orange/yellow colour. Hop and bread aroma, flavour is more hops with a little caramel. Quite sweet but not overly. This is a really nice beer, very refreshing.
