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.

McTapps (5213) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - SEP 15, 2012
Bottle shared with MichaelBruch. Watery taste combined with some bitter, boring, characterless flavours. Hints of sour mash.

MichaelAwesome (5202) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - SEP 15, 2012
Bottle shared with McTapps. Bitter and watery ale. Tasteless and nothing saying with nearly no aroma in.

imdownthepub (11146) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 3, 2012
Bottled, 500ml from Asda, Brighton Marina. Amber with white head. Largely a toffee, pasteurised beer, some maltiness, wet cardboard, touch of sweetness. Fairly bland.

sm89walt (1792) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 26, 2012
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. Iím pretty sure this isnít the best Kent has to offer.

NathanMcC (8) - Essex, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2012 does not count
Chestnut brown colour with a nice white head, floral scent with a slight hint of caramel, nice bitter sweet taste with a lovely roasted malt hint

50cl bottle from Tesco, Hastings. Amber with a billowing white head; typical shep aroma with some caramel; straightforward malty flavour with a touch of toast; light earthy hop finish. A straightforward bitter.
