"An easy to drink, refreshing cask ale with a fresh, fruity aroma that leaves a long, satisfying bitter finish. It is traditionally brewed to deliver a clean taste and is light and dry in flavour with a subtle taste of hops."

UPDATED: FEB 4, 2006 Handpump @ ’The Porcupine’, Charing Cross Rd, London, UK. Light amber colour, good lace. Yeasty, otherwise a bit solventy aroma. Taste: grainy, fruity, very pleasant hop aroma towards the end. A bit teasing on the palate.

Mild, earthy hops and light caramel malts greet the nose. Somewhat hazy, copper-orange coloured body with low white head that diminishes to ring. Toffee and caramel malt character with some leafy, earthy hops and moderate finishing bitterness. Medium-light body with low carbonation and creamy texture. Sussex Brewery, Emsworth.

The Yacht - Greenwich. Handpump. A very nice pint by anyones standards. Makes a grest drink. Flavour. The malt is defined and delicious and the hops are not overstated byut are certainly there to clean away and balance (that’s the word) the clean, juicy and sweetish malt. World class really. I have had this beer many times. The experience depend son the pub and the condition this one was great. High score.

Smelt lovely, looked lovely in the glass. A bit too bitter in my taste, but I had this immediately after another, sweeter, less bitter beer. It does have a bit of a complex taste though, and was enjoyable to sample.

harrisoni (12660) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 5, 2005
Cask at Queen’s Head, Chislehurst, Kent Copper coloured beer with a strong hop aroma and enough malt to make it rounded and balanced. Great session beer and lots of flavour for its strength

Cask. Light amber in colour, white head and very nice lacing. Aroma was of apple skins and floral hops. The flavour was of apples, melons and floral hops. Creamy mouthfeel, medium body, light carbonation. Finishes with a lingering bitterness. Quite enjoyable.
