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.

T: Slightly sweet upfront. Caramel and crystal malts followed by pleasant moderate hops bitterness. Strong notes of toffee. Citrus and grassy hops profile. Notes of grapefruit and red grapes. Finished by a dry and grassy bitterness

M: Light to medium body. Medium carbonation. Caramel bittersweet aftertaste

O: Very drinkable. Very pleasant and easydrinking British Ale

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.
