Beer Review: Seasider from Gadds'

Welcome to the Beer in Review! I am even-star and I review craft beers. Follow to see what's on tap in the UK and come back on Friday when I will reveal BEER. OF THE. WEEK.

It's Thursday and that means it's time for the BotW runner up. Because there can only be one BEER. OF THE. WEEK.

Seasider is the second beer in a couple of weeks from Gadds' of Ramsgate in southeastern Kent. It is a light amber and very fresh tasting. Bitter orange and other citrus flavours with a hint of malt in the finish.

Kent, a lovely county with a mild climate and rolling hills, was the home of hops in the UK. Not sure why the industry dried up there. Probably something to do with WWII when most of the land in the UK was appropriated for growing food crops. Fun fact: Beer was never rationed.

Also I love this photo. It's in the Traitors Gate which is the Friday night local. Those two doods in the background there. They're all "Kids today with their handheld cameras takin' pictures of our beer. who do they think they are?". But they are drinking lager so nobody cares what they think. You gonna put that crap in your face that I will trash talk you on the internet.

I am even-star and this is The Beer in Review. I post craft beer reviews usually five days a week and be sure to check in on Fridays when I reveal the BEER. OF THE. WEEK.

I also make things out of clay and paper. Check them out at Hancock's House of Happy.
