Westerham Brewery – Little Scotney

Westerham Ales ‘Little Scotney’ Best Bitter and Pale Ale are brewed using hops from Little Scotney farm at in Kent, the only Hop Farm owned by the National Trust. I found these bottles at the National Trust shop at Wimpole Hall, where previously ale had been available only at the restaurant.

Little Scotney Best Bitter 4.3% is treacle toffee in aroma and toffee malt in taste, almost sour with a light floral aftertaste, but overall… Toffee!

Little Scotney Pale Ale 4% gives a brief glimpse of those sharp bitter target hops but follows with strong biscuit malts, quite unexpected for a pale ale.

I’ll certainly bring home more of their beers next time…
