COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Kentish Ale is our flagship beer based on a traditional ale with pale and crystal malts, fuggle and golding hops. At 5.2% and bottle conditioned this complex beer is packed with flavour and makes the perfect accompaniment to a picnic lunch or a quiet wind-down at the end of the day.

Big fluffy white head, reduces to a nice light head on top of a crystal clear copper beer. Citrusy, doughy, caramel, spicy and plenty of malt. A refreshing beer, toasted malts upfront, earthy hops, grassy and resinous. A light, easy drinking beer. A good bitterness finishes off well, a good malty chewy beer. Full of light fruits and a little floral. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Stew41 (1736) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - SEP 28, 2012
For mine this challenges Holgate’s ESB as a top flight locally made English style beer. Masters the art of subtly yeah lacks no punch with Burton-on-Trent style powdery minerals, soft broad malts and a perfect balance of old world hops. Just goes to show good beers don’t have to belt you over the head with resiny hops. Lovely wide palate structure.

Dredd (689) - Bentleigh, AUSTRALIA - JUL 5, 2012
Pour is cloudy caramel with white head. Aroma is mainly caramel notes and flavour profile is brown sugar and bread with some bitterness at the end. Not bad, but suspect it sat on a shelf somewhere too long.

Brenhophead (557) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 27, 2012
750mL bottle. Pours clear golden with a nice big white head and a subtle floral aroma. Spicey/grassey in the flavour with a slight caramel backing. Very nice considering i dont normally go for English pale ales.

imaragingbull (570) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - DEC 30, 2011
Bottle at brewery poured into glass. Cloudy light copper orange with ok head and lace. Decent earthy and floral aromas mixed with a nice caramel and stonefruit. Nice complex malt character and decent bitterness, however finishes with an unpleasant residual yeast character. Ruined it somewhat for me.

floydian1 (956) - FNQ, Australia, - NOV 10, 2011
Green bottle (750ml). Pours clear copper-brown with a decent cream-white head that lasts. Heaps of English hops on the nose (flowery perfume, citrus with oranges dominating) on top of biscuity malts. Smooth refreshing palate with a perfect balance of caramel maltiness and dry hop bitterness. Extremely drinkable with a medium-light body and lowish carbonation. The large bottle size is justifiable for this style. Rather reminded me of a fresh pint of Timothy Taylor Landlord served in an English pub - for which there is no higher compliment.

vanvenlo (1232) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - JUL 13, 2011
14-Jul-2011 - on tap at Beer Deluxe - Light ash malt and candy fruit aroma. Deep amber colour, with light good haze, ordinary head and suds lacing. Unusual fruity candy ash malt flavour. Ash malt and medium bitter hop finish, with lingering ash malt and light hop aftertaste. This beer is not my style but they seem to have pulled of a mix that works for me.

Murky amber colour with poor head and fair lacing. Spicy malt hop aroma. Bitter malt stone fruit flavour. Smooth palate.
