Westerham British Bulldog BB
Bottle at home. This was a pretty standard bitter. Plenty of malt, bitter hops and a pleasant mouthfeel made this an acceptable pint. It's not one I would seek out again, but it was ok.

Bottle at Monacute House. Pours golden with fluffy white head. Not much aroma, perhaps faintly citrus. On the taste it’s bitter & malty, some citrus & biscuit. Zingy hoppy finish. Medium body. Brewed with Kentish hops & English barley. It’s not bad

Westerham Double Stout
330ml bb02/2018, Middle Farm Cider shop. - Truly an uncompromising Old World recipe stout: leathery and savoury in aroma and even most of its dark fruit flavours. All roast, chocolate and powder coffee notes remain dampened by a blanket of dusty liquorice and a manure-like earthiness, sourish filter/chicory coffee underneath. Thin, but probably historically accurate that way. It takes a while to get used to it, but would be a worthwhile forefather stout to compare with e.g. North Coast Rasputin.

Westerham Hop Rocket India Pale Ale (Bottle)
Bottle bought online from Beer Gonzo and shared at the 3rd Ipswich bottle share. Pours a hazy amber colour with a bubbly white head. Aroma of sweet caramel, and is moderately hoppy. Quite heavy sweetness and moderate citrus bitterness created something a bit muddled. Medium body and sticky texture. Average carbonation. Not as hoppy as many of today’s IPA’s.

Swietny Bitter, tak metny jakby lopate piachu dosypac, niespotykane to w brytyjskich piwach. Piwa stoji niczym snieg zima na szcytach Himalajii. Piekna rosnie wnet jak ciasto drozdzowe w piekarniku. Kolor pomaranczowy, metny, zapach cytrusowy z dodatkiem chleba pszenno-zytniego. Kwaskowa nuta lekka towarzyszy po kazdym przelknietym lyku. Super.

500ml bottle (Ales by Mail)
Rich amber, small tight beige head. Nice resiny aroma, plenty of esters, and loads of caramelly malts. Fullish sweetish palate, pleasant carbonation sometimes a little high. Quirky in the mouth, not quite what I expected from the aroma. Plenty of caramel, some resiny herbal bitterness, later some earthier aspects and pencil shavings. Finish has a low throb of bitterness. Decent strong ale, but I’d like the carbonation a bit lower.

No head left; clear metallic-cognac coloured beer. Cheesy!! Molten cheese, bit vegetal, ureum. Again cheesy, faintly sweet, finish is metallic-bitterish. Very light body; long bitter aftertaste. Not great. The crude UK hops have to give all the taste - and who cares about the gluten?
