Cask @ The Horse & Groom. The pour’s chestnut brown with a tiny white head. The nose is light wood, some berry, hints of caramel and straw. The taste is more wood, red apple skin, bubblegum sweetness and hints of fruits. Solid malt presence, smooth dry finish. Very still and soft, low carbonation. Drinks well. Overall, one of the better sheps beers I’ve had. OK.
Deep yellow, hints of caramel, very dry. ok beer. Cask at The Miller’s Arms in Canterbury lilywhite67 (4) - - APR 6, 2017 does not count
Have had far too many of these over the years. One of Britain’s oldest beers, can suffer in hot weather but, when on form, a clean, light, hoppy Kentish beer with notes of strawberry and orange. The perfect session ale. minutemat (5396) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2017
Cask pint @ The Millers Arms, Canterbury. Pours clear amber, small off-white head. Aroma of fleeting, light, faintly sweet malts. Taste is typically very light, thin bodied, overly watery, very light sweetish malts. Marginally adequate table beer but difficult to warm to. allmyvinyl (10486) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 16, 2017
Cask at the Guildford Arms. Pours clear amber with a thin white head. Aromas of light malt, faint strawberry. Taste is biscuit and more strawberry jam. Thin finish. AshtonMcCobb (6498) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 13, 2017
On cask at the Guildford Arms.
Appearance - copper with a nicely proportioned head.
Nose - a bit of strawberry syrup over malt biscuits.
Taste - yes, Jammy Dodgers all the way.
Palate - light to medium bodied with a crunchy texture and a finish that could be fresher.
Overall - has some high points but a little unbalanced.

My Bottom Line:Ambro206 (362) - ITALY - APR 10, 2016
Rocky minerals meet fruity caramel accents, a simple profile which watches over a fledgling hop aftertaste.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam tops the clear amber, lacing nicely.
-Mouthfeel is a tad watery.
-The mineral water flavour is on the dusty side too.
-The very low carbonation (under average for a cask on a handpull) doesn’t help these flavors to shine.
-When the water profile appears to be the main contributor to your beer’s flavour, there is a problem.
On cask at Ye Olde Pumphouse, Hastings.
Bevuta dal cask del pub del birrificio.
La birra si presenta ambrata con riflessi ramati. Schiuma con bolle un po’ grossolane, niente di strano considerato il servizio.
Al naso un pizzico di mela verde e frutti rossi. In bocca si apre poi ad um ventaglio ampio che spazia dal biscotto al amaro erbaceo, sottile e gradevole.
Molto equilibrata. Un po’ di astringenza finale. Carbonazione pressoché assente, corpo medio/leggero. Buona beva.altonbrownd (5898) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - OCT 31, 2015

Mörkorange öl med ett stort och långvarigt skum. Smörkola, frukt och gräs i såväl smak som doft. Mjuk och rund munkänsla. En fruktig sötma smyger sig på i avslutningen.
