2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: NOV 18, 2003 Cask, Crown & Thistle, Gravesend. A wonderful pub - great range of real ales, and a humming atmosphere; well kept. This is a ginger amber coloured beer. Some lemon flavour. Earthy hops tending towards stale. Fruity finish. Some plum - but hops come in too early and dominate. Fragrant lemon up front, then the plum is introduced. Brown sugar and yeasty fruit aroma. Comes across as a poor attempt at a Summer Pale Ale. Probably near the end of the cask.
