“Pint Mugs at Three O'clock!”

Tasty Kentish beer with a good balanced flavour of...

Has to be kept well to be good. A bit too easy to...

After reviewing Shepherd Neame’s wonderful Bishops Finger I was reminded that I really ought to give one of their other famous brews a mention. Here is my opinion on Spitfire, another Premium Ale from the Kent brewer. ~~~THE BREWERY. A long time ago (in 1698 to be exact) brewing started at the...

“Heir of the dogfight”

published 29/08/2003

Full-flavoured and refreshing ale

No longer bottle-conditioned

What is it about Faversham? I can't seem to escape the place. According to family legend, my dad worked on a pig farm there as a youth. At various times, my grandmother, brother and uncle all lived in this unassuming but historic north Kent market town. My mother still does live there. Filial...

“Not a Fighter”

published 02/09/2005

Complex yet esay-drinking

None

I had to work down in London last week so obviously promised Mrs P that I wouldn't be scooping up every night. With a straight face, I told her I wouldn't be heading off to the pub at every opportunity and I certainly wouldn't be pouring copious amounts of Youngs and/or Fullers down my neck...

Satisfactory

It’s from the Shepherd Neame brewery

Not one of their best.

It has been a really hot and sultry day today (well, at least it was the day I wrote this!!). While there have been some people out there devoted to the appreciation of grown men and women thrashing a white, furry ball around the lawn, I have endeavoured to avoid the continuing ravages of...

“A fine real ale”

published 24/07/2003

Tastes gorgeous

can sit a little heavy on the stomach

The Shepherd Neame brewery is steeped in history and has been brewing fine tasting ales for many years. One of these that I have had the pleasure of drinking is the Spitfire Ale. This a lovely smooth, dark, malty brew, which unlike some of the other strong real ales does not have a nasty...

“Beware of enemy infiltation”

published 29/08/2005

Tasty beer

Not always easy to find

The jocular advertising campaign to steer people away from lagers to Spitfire consists of a line of pints of real beer with a lone glass of lager trying to push through from behind. The caption? "Beware of enemy infiltration!" I first found Spitfire in a Wetherspoon pub in Birmingham. It was not...

“As good as they cum.....”

published 01/08/2003

As good as they cum.....

Affects my libido

This is a classy ale- a dark malty brew that is easy on the palatte- smooth, full flavour, not too gassy and, doesnt have the nasty after-taste (frequently associated with many so called 'ales' (it has been matured in wood over a period of time- which gives it its distinct flavour) Unfortunately...
