’Spritzy’ it how I would describe mouthfeel. It improved as it warmed up (served too chilled). Maliness was there - and hops came through.

500ml bottle from Asda.
Large frothy off-white head with good lacing. Clear amber body. Nose is light grassy hops, a little spice. Flavour is grass, straw, some grapefruit on the aftertaste. Mouthfeel is ok, medium carbonation, quite crisp. Nothing special but easy enough to drink.

(Bottle): Pours a clear amber, small white head. Aroma of caramel, hops and citrus. Subdued malt flavour with bursts of hops coming through along with slight hints of caramel. It’s not bad, would expect better from Shepherd Neame.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at the Seiyu supermarket, which, like ASDA, is also part of the Walmart Empire. \298. Floral, citrus hop nose, slight caramel malt, bread, cherries or grapes. Fruity, reasonably nice. Light amber-orange color, tall, fine head. Nice clean maltiness, somewhat sweet, fruity, good bitter finish. Full but not heavy. Enjoyable and well balanced. Great deal for the price of a Japanese major lager.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled 25/05/13. A proper brown coloured beer - not at all golden - with a white head. Very husky and grainy. A sweetness and a grassy hoppiness in the nose but then it’s grainy malts all the way. Substandard.
