1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pale amber with a thin somewhat lasting frothy beige head. Smells of bread, malt, cherry and a light chemical staleness that is common for all beers from Shepherd Neame. I’m sure the clear glass doesn’t help keep the taste or smell any fresher. Medium to light thin to oily body. Tastes mass produced but still reasonably drinkable. Chemical, malt, biscuit and a bitter-sweet finish. Some citrus hops are noticeable in the nose and taste but not enough.

Bottle. Fair aroma, with a nice malty taste, quite bitter. Easy drinking bitter but doesn’t quite have enough hop character to make it interesting.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle courtesy of Mike. Thanks. Pours golden with a frothy off white head. Syrupy citrus aroma. Similar taste. Notes of grain, syrup, light spice and metal. Leaves a unpleasant taste in the mouth long after the beer was finished. Somewhere between bland and nasty.

Why am i doing this? I was having a nice evening up unitil now. Aroma is dreadfull, skunk, chive, onion, diacetyl, bit of veg broth. Fucking terrible. Clear light amber, orange coloured pour with a thin white head. Flavour is tangy apple, light caramel ,nutty, veg, skunk, mineral. Palate is thin, watery, moderate carbonation. Terrible.

Brewed by Shepherd Name for them - and it tastes just like their Kent’s Best beer. I’m not a fan of that either. Kind of dull.

have had this a few times and its a good solid summer beer that will stand up against other supermarket beers not over hoppy and it has a nice fruity taste through out the beer perfect for a hot summers day

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle from Sainsburys, Bicester, August 2013 consumed at home in garden Sunday 17th August 2013 Pours clear warm gold with white head. Oh how I despair over some English hops and boiled sweet beers. Described as fruity yet bitter, what utter shite, it’s got a metallicy twang taste of ’Happy Shopper’ boiled sweets and is just utter rubbish. The fact that it looks good and the rose bush was happy with the watering are the only positives I could draw. A4 A4 T3 P2 Ov7 2.0
