"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."

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

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.

Copper in color with a bit of suds. Lightly malty (buttery diacytl hints) and a bit of earthy hop notes. Moderately carbonated and served pretty cold (for an English ale).

Cask at The Wharf. A clear amber beer with a small off-white head. Slightly unpleasant nose, garbage-like, but mostly malts, dried fruits and citrusy hops. Dry, medium body with flavors of citrus and some sweet crystal malts. Dry, bitter finish. Nothing impressive going on, but quenching and tasteful. 101020

[Cask at the Bull Inn, Bulverhythe, Hastings] Amber, thin loose cream head. Chocolate & lightly roasted malt in a lovely smooth mothfeel. A glorious relaxing bitter, I didnít know Shepherd Neame had it in them!
