3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle round a friend’s. Golden honey brown, clear, with a fizzy white head. Malty smell with some oranges and clove. Taste is malty sweet, with earthy hop in the finish. Toffee aftertaste. Confused and not all that.

500ml bottle. Big floral aroma, citrus, hoppy, bitter. For me, one of Shepherd Neames best beers.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
0.5 bottle. Clear, copper color and a small, white, rapidly disappearing head. Aroma of hops, caramel, spices, coriander, and fruits. Taste of caramel, some grains, and delicate spices. Light body, thin texture, and soft carbonation. Finish is short and watery like the rest. Overall the beer does not deliver the difference promised, although the packaging is very convincing.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours dark amber, frothy head develops due to quite high carbonation. Nose has hops, coconut, a metallic hint, touch of staleness. Taste is okay; non descript hops with a little sweet biscuit. Short slightly bitter finish with a metallic hint. Watery palate. I’m afraid I didn’t taste the difference.
