Bottled. An amber beer with a thin fof-white head. The aroma has notes of malt, caramel, and a bit of yeast. The flavor is sweet with notes of nuts, malt, straw, and a bit of caramel, leading to a very dry finish. Thanks yespr for sharing.

harrisoni (13883) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 9, 2010
500ml bottle from Tesco drunk from the bottle on the train from Canterbury to Ashford. It’s odd. Just as you have a brewery pigeon holed, it moves. Classic copper amber colour and when it open it, it throws a bubbly beige head. Fresh hoppy aroma and that is what stuns me, It is just so hoppy. The bottling does not stop the yeast house character coming through. Finish is slight metallic bitter. It’s a decent bitter, not overly hurt by the bottling and if anything the carbonation makes it more bitter than on hand pump. Yet this house yeast carries through. I like it more than I was expecting.

yngwie (13778) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 9, 2013
Bottle, as Master Brew Kentish Ale. A clear, copper-colored beer topped by a small, dense, off-white head. The aroma is slightly butterscotchy, with toffee, bread and grass, cheesy hops. The flavor is less butterscotchy, but it’s still there, the hops playing a more significant role. Dry, medium bodied and with soft carbonation. There’s a metallic touch in the finish, along with bread and grassy, cheesy hops. Sure drinkable, but very boring. 130309

Bottle, 4.0%. Mild grassy hop aroma. Clear shiny copper colour. The flavour is mildly hoppy, mostly aroma hop. Citric, piney and grassy hop flavour along with a bit of bitterness.
