Cask; Regular. Replacement for Best Bitter.
"This is an ambient bitter, successfully merging the biscuity sweetness of English malt with the fruity, floral bitterness of locally grown East Kent Goldings and Target hops, to give a clean, satisfying and moreish drink."

Lovely clear dark amber ale with an off white head. Quite a strong bitter flavour but its actually pretty refreshing. Not sure its the best Kent has to offer but its definitely up there.

Cask at Ship & Whale, Rotherhithe. Copper amber colour, foam off white head leaving some lacing, aroma of malt & slight hop. Taste is malty with fruity earthy notes and light bitterness. Smooth, light to medium bodied, medium carbonation, quite OK.

Leighton (10847) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2013
Cask at Tom Cribb, Shepís, London. Pours clear copper with a sturdy, white foam head. Classic twig and berry nose, fuggles, some toasty bread. Light sweet flavor, mellow leafy bitterness, light dirt, faint tangy berries. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Light sweet finish, some ashy leaves, dirt, burnt brown bread toast. Fairly bland, though not offensive.

Cask (Caseyís Canterbury)
Loads os sweet black tea in the aroma. Deep orange, small spongy off-white head. Some tobacco too. A touch minerally retronasals, some marmite, some spice, some sourness. Dry, almost astringent bitterness. Finish dry. An odd one, not bad, but a bit watery.

Fin (7379) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 11, 2012
Cask handpump at The Lamb, Farnham, Saturday 10th March 2012 Possibly the beer in the most spankingly good condition of the day. Pours a sort of copper colour amazing clarity. Ok its really just a nice session strength beer, little furry on tongue, steady bitterness, clean with a little dryness at the end, but itís very good. A7 A5 T7 P3 Ov14 3.6

JorgeLee (1180) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 6, 2012
Cask at the Coach and Horses W1. A typical english bitter, good session beer, deep copper/brown colour, malty flavour, less hop, finish perhaps unremarkable. Quite malty for SN, not having the typical hop/spicy house style for me.
