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.

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.

Bottle 750ml. Great beer. Aroma has lots of fruit (grapefruit, apple), and also biscuit. Taste is sweet, with bitter background, and long length. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Amber, with an exuberant frothy head.

Thylacine (526) - Tasmania, AUSTRALIA - JAN 11, 2009
750ml bottle - Nice hoppy aroma. Pours a cloudy, copper colour with a good off white head. Medium carbonation. Medium to full bodied. Malty/caramel, fruity background with an abundance of hop flavours (Fuggles and Goldings) and a moderately bitter finish. Very enjoyable.

Bottle. Just cloudy amber with a dense cream head. Aroma is floral with caramel, some spices and biscuits. A little overcarbonated but very alive-feeling. Tastes slightly sweet and very biscuity with some butterscotch, hazelnuts and flowers. Bitterness is just less than balancing. Slight touch of metal at the end? - if it was there I stopped noticing it . Rich and a little rustic. Much more complex malt character than usually found in Australian beer. Pretty tasty. Second glass with farmhouse cheddar and a pickled onion, yum. Started OK and then really drew me in.

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

Smells great, heaps of hops, citrus. Lovely clear amber to bronze with a thick long lasting head. Very smooth and lightly sweet. Really like this beer.

Exceptional beer. Very good farmhouse style english bitter. Lots of caramel and the body felt just about right for the style. Very easy drinking and a very quenching beer.

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.

bluevegie (3051) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 26, 2009
750ml Bottle - Clear, bronze gold body with a lasting white head. Hops on the aroma with just a bit of malt in the backgound. Light bitterness in the taste that softens moreso as you get into it, some lemon notes, some bubblegum and loads of yeast as you get to the bottom of the bottle. First bottle took me a little while to get into but the second one a week later or so was great.

mkel07 (3103) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 1, 2011
750ml bottle. Copper coloured with some red flecks scattered throughout. Big intense head of brown foam that crackles as it settles. Caramel malt aromas with nuts and toffee mixed in. Flavour is a little thin but not to the detriment of the beer. Palate is smooth and this is a pretty good beer overall.
