Cloudy amber with a very small white head. Aroma of pine, grapefruit and passionfruit. Nice full body, with a dry feel but great balance with the citrus hops. Flavours of light caramel and the citrus. The finish is quite long and hoppy. Great bitter!

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2008 Cask at Crabble Corn Mill Beer Festival. Very malty mid brown beer. Again does not do anything exceptional, a typical best bitter 2.7/5.0
Re-rate Cask handpull at The King & Queen, East Malling. Decent UK best bitter, nice butteryness to the fullish malts, decent earthy hops n nose and finish. VEry suppable. NO less than I would expect from an increasingly promising Kent micro. Even with 2 flies in it, this was good. Really well put together beer.
