2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear 500ml bottle on 9th Aug 2013 at my parents: poured into a chalice (twice).
Good amber coat to the brew, a small white head hung around on both pours’ but not for very long.
Malt front to the nose and taste, caramel and toffee notes to be precise. Mild floral and fruit hints in the taste, but the aroma is all malts.
A bit thin body wise, but OK for a cheap supermarket beer, which is what this beer really is.

Keg at the RHCC - 24/12/12.
Dark amber with a thin off white head that clears to the edge.
Nose is malt, toffee and biscuit.
Taste follows, touch of summer fruit and light hops.
Medium bodied with a little spritz in the carbonation.
Pretty basic boring stuff.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml bottle. Poured a clear, dark copper-amber with a one finger, mostly lasting off-white to beige head. A typical pasteurised SN bottled ale - fruits, toasted malts & caramel all round. Finished with a toasted, nutty bitterness & a grassy hop note with a metallic edge too. Light to medium body, medium carbonation, relatively lasting bitterness. I’m pretty sure this isn’t the best Kent has to offer.
