"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."

yespr (40454) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JUN 1, 2008
From cask at Charlies. Pours cloudy orange with a lacing white head. Light malty and bitter aroma. Flavour holds a mild citrus fruity note to a somewhat vague malt base. Goes into a solid bitterness in the finish and ends quite dry. Crisp and clean bitter.
