Ramsgate Brewery Gadds’ No. 5 (4.4%)

Gadds' No 5I’ve been happily working my way through a mixed case from Ramsgate Brewery and this is another winner.
No. 5 is a Best Bitter and it’s very good.
It pours a rich conker red with a light fluffy head and it smells of red berries and twigs and caramel sweets.
The malting is a big and round and friendly, all overflowing biscuit tins and chewy fudge, mixed nuts and raisins and just a touch of fresh pipe tobacco that really feels at home next to the black tea, nettles and bramble jelly of the hops.
There’s even a hint of liquorice root hiding right at the back that adds a subtle richness to the honey softened, sharp and bitter finish.
Cheers.
