There are some new Sheps beers out under newish names and some older beers that have been renamed so I hope to iron out any confusion for the beers youíll see this summer.

Shepherd Neame Goldings has been discontinued
http://www.ratebeer.com/beer/shepherd-neame-goldings-cask/45099/
and has already been retired here.

Itís been replaced with Shepherd Neame Goldings Summer Hop Ale
http://www.ratebeer.com/beer/shepherd-neame-goldings-summer-hop-ale/221972/
which has different ingredients and different ABV. Confusingly the old beer said Goldings, Summer Hop Ale on the label.

What was Shepherd Neame Whitstable Bay is now Shepherd Neame Whitstable Bay Organic Ale at 4.5% in both cask and bottle and arenít new beers. Iíve renamed them on the site.

The Whitstable Bay beers have been added to with 2 new beers Shepherd Neame Whistable Pale Ale
http://www.ratebeer.com/beer/shepherd-neame-whitstable-bay-pale-ale-cask/221975/
at 3.9% for cask, also available in keg and bottle under a different rating
http://www.ratebeer.com/beer/shepherd-neame-whitstable-bay-pale-ale-bottle/221978/

There is also now a Shepherd Neame Whitstable Bay Blonde Lager
http://www.ratebeer.com/beer/shepherd-neame-whitstable-bay-blonde-lager/221136/

I hope everyone understands and enjoys the new beers over the summer. Alternatively just beermail and Iíll try to tell you what youíve had. Iíve already made a cock up by not having the new Goldings Summer Hop Ale at Kent BF at the weekend believing it was the old beer. Otherwise donít bother and drink something else.
