Westerham Brewery - Summer Perle

Monday night beers ah the joy!

Went out to celebrate my wife's birthday in our local - The Crown, Old Oxted. They had four real ales on last night, London Pride, Adnams Southwold, Old Speckled Hen and Westerham Summer Perle.

What with Westerham Brewery being our most local brewer* it seems only right to support them. I've had and discussed the SPA previously on this site and would now add Perle to a long list of enjoyable session beers!

The first pint went down very smoothly, a clean clear light summer beer almost yellow bronze in colour, with a definite citrus taste to it and a zingy bitter finish. (maybe my tastes are changing because i'm sure in years gone by I would have found the citrus flavour not to my liking).
I had thought I might try one of the other ales but this pint deserved a second chance and the second one went down just as well!

* Mileage wise it maybe the Reigate brewery - Pilgrims, but they don't seem to supply many pubs!
