Cask Conditioned at The Wenlock Arms, Finsbury, London. Pale gold with solid creamy head. Bright well coditioned beer with a particularly nasal hop note, citrusy and full flavoured. Sweet fruity hop developing late, the Brewery is said to be hoping to revive beers from the old Black Eagle Brewery.

Beer #8 at Dartford Beer Festival, with SilkTork and Duff. The second beer from the new Westerham brewery and this one wasnt ready either. Judging from IDTPs rating that is a real shame. It was a nice pale bronze colour. Beyond that, theres not much more I can say. Must re-rate this if the opportunity arises. Cask (gravity dispense).

SilkTork (5663) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2006 July, 2004.Dartford Fest. Gravity. This was a replacement for the green British Bulldog. Sadly it was also green. Apple notes everywhere. Beyond the apples it came over as an average dry session bitter. [2.7]
Dec, 2005.<a href=http://www.beerintheevening.com/pubs/s/26/269 Intent, Rochester. Mmmm. Fresh and wonderful. Good hoppy session bitter, crammed with fresh flavours. The hops are robust and delightful, and the malt is juicy, sweet and very full. Very impressive for a 3.8% beer. Glad to have another crack at this in good condition. [4.3]
