An English IPA perhaps, or like a hoppy Yorkshire bitter might be if it were brewed by Sheps with that distinctive leafy marmalade twang. As a quaffing beer, I like it.

This beer smells of hay. Tastes very metallic, and is definitely not an IPA. It is utter shite.

This is a bitter, although not a bad one it suffers from tasting the same as lots of other shepherd neame beers. An Amber ale with a caramel aroma, fruity flavour with dry hoppy finish. It is a good example of a kentish ale, but the ipa moniker is misleading and annoying.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amber color with a medium head. The beer has a delicate aroma overall. It has a typical for a bitter bread skin and caramel notes to it. Also some herbs, zest and cat piss. Flavor is the same but with lots of water. It has a dry dough and bread malt flavor and herbal bitterness in the aftertaste. The finish is medium long. Not a bad pint of dull bitter.

I really like this one. It tastes much better than most beers I’ve tried, and with it being an ASDA beer you can usually get four bottles for £5. Bargain.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Short head. Golden to amber colored beer.
Good amount of hops in aroma, some malts and hints of honey. Hints of esters. Some melanoidins, I think. Delicate scent/flavor of hooch or whiskey.
Light to medium bitterness.
Lightly carbonated, slick texture. Medium body.
British must have different thoughts on IPA style than Americans.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
A bit watery, boring. Fresh-smooth beginning, not too deep. Easy to drink, slightly hoppy, a bit of malt but not more. The aftertaste is medium, watery sweetish with nice floral bitter hints.
