Sampled at the Medway Beer Festival 2006 on 18/11/06 - Sussex is by and large pretty much a nothing county that is famous for, well, not a lot really. However, this bitter is good. Paler in colour than one may expect for a bitter and fruitily refreshing in a hoppy kind of way. Thanks Sussex!l

Floral and complex with well balanced malt. Slightly lacking in body and perhaps a little tarte but easy drinking nonetheless. Each one as good as the first.

Sampled on 17/11/06 at Market Porter London SE1. Always a good standby at this tickers pub. The handpumps were full of rebadged bland beers. So if you like beer, go for this instead.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma gives toffee rich fruits with citruis hops balancing it all out. Taste has a similar kind of balancing going on which gives a great very drinkable bitter.
