2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
50cl bottle from Asda, High Wycombe. Amber with a thin white head; typical Shep aroma, dry and chalky, with perhaps a touch of citrus; some sweet fruit flavours, but otherwise itís hard to distinguish this from Spitfire; and an orangey biscuit finish.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Deep gold with a slight white head and a touch of carbonation. Tired hops, a touch of wet cardboard, bready malts and a slightly redeeming, bitter finish. Not for me, another indifferent bottled English beer.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml bottle on special offer at Asda, Irvine for £1.25. Brewed by Shepherd Meane this bares (IMO) little resemblance to an IPA. Too gassy, little flavour (grassy, biscuit) and poor hoppy finish. Not on my íto try againí list.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
500ml bottle from Asda.
Large bubbly white head, clear dark amber body. Nose is grassy, slightest hint of spice. Flavour is biscuit, grass, little hops and not much bitterness. Aftertaste doesn't hang about. Nothing to write home about.

More like a Bitter than an IPA. Strangely I pick up some spice in the aroma, cinnamon. Otherwise lightly fruity, some digestive biscuit.

Bottle. Clear bottle. Golden with a small head. Some citrus is present but apart from that theres nothing much to say. There certainly wont be queueing outside the store for this one.
