500ml bottle poured into a pint glass.

A-clear, chestnut brown. Pours a thin white head that fades quickly.

S- butterscotch, caramel malts, hint of dark fruits. great example of an English bitter.

T-roasted malts, golden syrup and hint of coffee. Nice strong choppy bitterness throughout.

M dry texture,medium body and carbonation, good aftertaste.

O. Really tasty beer, I'm impressed how much the bottled version tastes like on tap. Rich in malts and bitterness, yet very session able.

Can. This fine beer has the typical Kentish Ale-look with the golden/red-brown color. It’s quite easy to drink even though there is a lot of bitterness in it. Slight taste of some tangy butterscotch and toffee in the aftertaste makes the beer more pleasant to drink.

From notes:

Smells malty with blackcurrant and blackberry fruity notes.
Head fades. Mouthfeel was initially very fizzy - I could have poured it more aggressively; smooth once it settled a bit.

Taste: slightly sweet on the tip of the tongue, bitter hops towards back and side of mouth, fruits and berries on the middle of the tongue. Burps citrusy-marmaladey hops. This is a really well balanced beer - the tastes flow and merge and balance each other beautifully.
I loved it.
