4.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
UPDATED: MAY 7, 2006 Nov, 2005 JDW, Rochester. Creamy and sweet best bitter with a quiet and dignified hop exit. [2.9]
April, 2006 <a href=http://www.beerintheevening.com/pubs/s/14/146 Anchor, Faversham . A beautiful marmalade sweet best bitter with a dusty hop edge lingering in the swallow. The sweetness is soon balanced, leaving a sweet memory. This is an impressive ale - spicy and full bodied. Dark cherry flavours. I enjoyed this more and more as the pint progressed. A bloody great beer - every mouthful a pleasure. [4.4]

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 it’s very good. A7 A5 T7 P3 Ov14 3.6
