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. Iím pretty sure this isnít the best Kent has to offer.

I was expecting to hate this having had it on cask a few times and always found it to be anything but Kentís best. ...but itís actually not that bad. It spells of hops; green hops; good hops. It tastes of bitter biscuits. Itís astringent. Itís just like the kind of beers I drank in Wye in the late 80ís. A no frills bitter in the old-skool style.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Draught at Bishopís Arms, Vasagatan, Stockholm, 6 Feb 2008. Labeled as Bishopís Arms House Ale) Amber colour with frothy off-white head. Fruity, malty nose with nuts and dark fruit. Malty taste with dark fruit and decent amounts of earthy hops in the finish. Light body, mainly dry. Nothing exceptional, but a decent, easy drinking bitter with a balanced hop character.
