3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: APR 14, 2016 500ml bottle from Asda, Folkestone. Amber with a thin white head; fruity apricot aroma; sweet, light and fruity with apricot and marzipan flavours; dry and bitter finish. Not bad. (9/26/2008 6/3/6/4/14=3.3)
Cask at the White Hart, Holyport. A bright amber pour with a thin cream head; malty aroma; biscuity malt body with a touch of citrus; followed by a short lived bitterness from some Kentish hops, then more biscuit to finish. A pleasantly quaffable pint of bitter. (4/14/2016 6/4/6/3/11=3)

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled: Brownish colour. This is exactly what it says it is, a typical best bitter, a drinker’s beer not an entry for Extreme Hop Hammer of the year. When I’d finished I quite fancied another one, which is just as it should be.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle Conditioned. Good ruby chestnut brown coloured beer. Bit of caramel and nut but the astringent, unsophisticated hop, dominated. I’ve had this before and it was better. Overall disappointing

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: NOV 28, 2006 Named after that fat old Bulldog Winston Churchill (brewed in Westerham near his Chartwell home), this beer is pretty good. Sweet, light and fruity in a hoppy kind of way. God bless you Sir Winston - Up yours!

Cask, Jan Primus. Floral aroma of british hops. Hazy, orange coloured with a lasting, thin white head. Taste is a bit carbonated, light-moderate bitter. Very refreshing. Light bodied. Some caramel malts and mainly floral hops. Some orange as well. Nice.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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!
