Gadds' Brewery : Seasider ABV 4.3% "amber ale"
Ramsgate based Gadds' brew distinctive Kentish beers, using years of knowledge, experience and understanding – they say they've been around long enough to know what they’re doing, and not so long as to be old fashioned. From them comes Seasider, a mellow, easy drinking amber ale brewed with a little crystal malt and a lot of Goldings hops. Nothing flash, just a very decent malty body and a balancing hop flavour.
