(cask @ Coopers, Rochester) A respectable offering , as most of Nelson’s stuff is , despite a homebrew like quality in the character of their beers.
the pump clip statted ’IPA’ ... so a subdued best bitter ovbiously. It was fruity ,with peach and madirian like hop notes but the customary caramel butterscotch maltiness sandwitches and outshouts any respectable hop activity . Though a nice enough glass of ale really.

UPDATED: OCT 19, 2007 Chatham is famous for some good stuff - i.e. Charles Dickens, HMS Victory and some bad stuff - Chavs. This beer falls into the latter category. Pretty disgusting really. Very thin and watery - not a lot of taste, fairly sweet. In short dishwater.

Cask conditioned at Catford Beer Festival. Sweet and malty bitter with an ash finish. A standard ordinary bitter.

Cask (gravity dispense), Catford Beer Festival 2006. Coppery colour. In common with a number of other nelson beers I’ve tried, its more malty than hoppy with a touch of sweetness. Pronounced toffee and caramel aroma with a touch of smoky malt. More of the same on the palate. This makes for a comparatively flavoursome session bitter, but the downside (for me at least) is that its not very bitter at all. Smooth and easy drinking but not entirely to my taste. Pretty well made though.

harrisoni (17278) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 10, 2006
Cask gravity at Catford BF 06. Deep copper with thin white head. Actually this is a pretty good malty session bitter. Got a good finish of dry malt.

Cask: Copper with a small head. Mild fruity aroma. Sweet nutty caramel start with a fruity finish. Meidum bodied drinkable session bitter.

UPDATED: APR 6, 2004 Cask, Admiral Halsey, Greenwich. Crude sweetness. Watery. Flop bitterness. Not a good beer. [1.8]
Elephant, Faversham. Hard to belive this is the same beer. Dark amber bitter with an assertive earthy hop bite which dominates a gentle caramel malt base. Fresh, tasty and in excellent condition bringing out some rasin and sultana flavours. Best beer I've had at this much improved pub.
