imdownthepub (12915) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 26, 2006
Cask conditioned at Coventry Beer Festival. Dark copper colured beer with no head. Sweet sticky malty beer, heavy with caramel, on the edges of what I would call bitter. Rather malt loaf(ish) in flavour, I dont get the hoppiness. Yeasty close out.

harrisoni (16931) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2005
Gravity cask at Lobster Pot, West Malling Badged as Sevenoaks Bitter. Copper colour with small white head that does not last. Nice malt/hop balance, bit more malty in mouth with good rich malt fruit followed by hoppy finish. Some goodish caramel and orange rind flavours and some roasted malts. Good strong bitter

chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 2, 2004
Canterbury Beer Festival, with Silk Tork. Appealing copper colour with a red/orange tinge. The aroma is mainly malty, as is the flavour, with hoppy bitterness increasing towards the finish. Well balanced, with quite a full mouthfeel.The finish is a little short and soft but, otherwise, an impressive and interesting effort. Cask (gravity dispense).
