I told you all about the Pale India Ales last year when we released 'No Tomorrow', well I was wrong and Tomorrow has arrived. This year's offering is "India", an 8.3% pale ale brewed with all East Kent Goldings from the 2008 crop at Brooke Farm. First run out was a cask at the Dover Winter Beer Festival back in February and it was pretty good. Next is the Planet Thanet Easter Beer Festival and the Chambers Beer Festival, both on the weekend of the 10th April.
In the meantime there is a store of bottled India and it's ready and on-sale. For a paltry £2.50 you get 330ml of smack-in-the-face Kentish hops - there's no fuss and bother about this one, it's bitter, bitter, hoppy and bitter. And it kicks like a mole, to paraphrase Count Arthur.
It does drink extremely well.
