UPDATED: SEP 7, 2010 1) Faversham Spoons. Tawny amber with white halo. Lime and leafy hops on the nose. Surprisingly earthy citrus hop with a gnaw of chlorophyll. Bit soily. Clean, abrupt and bitter on the end. Good balancing vanilla, tea and honeyish malt. Lemony, earthy, solidly hopped. Touch of malt nuttiness. Tasty.

Handpulled cask at JDW Ickenham. Light amber with a short lived white head. Pleasent but so ordinary considering its champion status. sm89walt (2065) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - NOV 27, 2008
Cask - West Gate Inn JDW, Canterbury. Light, reddy brown with a thin, readily dissipating ashy-white head. Quite a bitter fruit aroma along with tobacco and cedar. A spicy, piney, grapefruity flavour profile with a, lip-smacking bitter finish. A soft mouthfeel and a rounded session bitter in all.
