1698 Bottle conditioned Kentish Strong Ale is a living product which continues to ferment in the bottle, this creates a natural sediment just like real ale as it ferments in the cask in the pub. Only local hops and malted barley and water drawn from our artesian well are used to brew 1698 Bottle conditioned Kentish Strong Ale. Hops ared added three times, hence it is " thrice hopped ".

    Keg at The Bishop’s Arms, Göteborg. Deep golden to amber colour. Nice hoppy aroma with notes of toffee and sherry. Rich malty flavour with notes of toffee, caramel and some oak, but a little too sweet for my taste.

    500 ml translucent capped bottle. Poured in an English tulip pint a clear mid-brown coloured ESA with a generous three fingers beige pillowy foamy head that had a very long retention and tons of micro bubbles. Sustained carbonation. Good lacing. The aroma is moderate roasted malts, some hay and grassy hops. The flavour is toasted malts, caramel, brown sugar, dried fruits, nuts and a light floral hoppy bitterness. The mouthfeel is clean, a bit oily and quite smooth. This medium bodied ESA has a long caramel sweety finish. Not very impressive but easy drinkable.
