Cornella Brewery's founders fell in love with beer in the UK and when they first launched their brewery, their focus was on the kind of real ales Spencer and Matt enjoyed in Manchester's many many pubs. So in some ways, Sick Kent is a return to their roots but while it was originally only meant to be a limited-release, it seems country Victoria caught up with the Cornella's brewers and the beer's surprising popularity saw it graduate to their core range.

Per its namesake, it showcases East Kent Golding (EKG) hops and originally, those hops were sourced from the brewery's long-time collaborator, Skull Gully Hops. Alas, that hop farm is no more, but Sick Kent endures and remains a lovely display of the 200-year-old variety which is widely regarded as the quintessential English hop. Here its signature earthy, herbal characteristics are at the fore in Cornella’s best bitter, while the beer has crystal clarity and a deep golden hue that hints at the sweet, toffee malt flavour that follows.
