3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: NOV 27, 2006 This ale seems to taste of everything - it’s sweet, lemony, hoppy, malty and burnt in taste, but above all strong - it’s 5.4% and tastes it. Similar to Neame’s Autumn Ale Late Red and nearly as good. Man this ale is good!

This is Kent in a bottle i can almost see the hop sheds.... lovely malty nutty hop aroma as soon as you open the bottle beautiful malt flavour suggestion of rich fruits, good bitter hop finish. good mouthfeel but head retention is average.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Beautiful dark amber beer with a lasting frothy head. Malty aroma with some lemon and burnt caramel. Interesting flavour and feel to it. Tastes a lot like the Spitfire, with more malt and hops in the flavour. Average.

Bottle (present from brother) Amber with fast disappearing white head. Sweet malty caramel notes. flat carbonation and thin however a bit smooth texture. Little bitter finish! Very ordinary British!

3.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Overall, I found this to be a solidly above average beer. It has an appealing red tint with a foamy head, pleasant aroma and great taste. It has a smoky quality and slight bitterness with a strong yet balanced aftertaste that is reminiscent of quality barley malt.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
’Kentish strong ale’. Clear, cherryish red body spiralling with spritzy bubbles. Fruit and a little vinegar in the nose, but flavour-wise an appetising balance of bitter hops (E.Kent Goldings) and a honeyish creaminess in the aftertaste.

3.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma: spicy hop and crystal malt
Flavour: Bittter with lingering malt and piney hop flavour. Mineral character and candied orange peel as it warmed in the glass.
Appearance: Reddish copper. Head disappears disapointingly quickly.
Mouthfeel: Medium light bodied with assertive carbonation
Overall: A very good best bitter with complex malt and ester profile. Sadly lacking in aroma. Otherwise an outstanding beer

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, fairly standard brown colour with sweet and malty aroma, little bit bubbly but taste was very rich and fruity and malty, some bitterness and hops, and rather pleasant all things considered.
