one of my favorites from shepherd neame, which i guess i designed to showcase the wonderful local kent goldings hop. what you get is a great session beer full of delightful hoppy flavors. almost like an english style pilsener.

light bronze in color, it pours with a beady thin head that stays till your done. zesty citrus aromas, with some caramel and a marvellous noble hop scent. medium bodied, with a gentle carbonation, its fruity, with a little orange present, subtle malts and a long bitterness that has a geat taste and pleasing finish. not as bitter as saaz or cascade, but still has the bite you want and goes extemely well all together. ive drank this fresh, and a little past its use by, and it hasnt lost anything over the time which is an exception to most beers.

a fantstic beer to drink at any time. kentish ale is not necessarily the best or most complex of the genre, but never fails to be an enjoyable drink worth trying if you ever see it around.
