COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

A smooth and fruity beer, bursting with refreshing flavours of citrus fruits combined with rounded, malty notes. This crisp and citrussy beer is brewed using a single hop variety, Earlybird to give a light malty beer with fresh floral aromas.

stevoj (2016) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 4, 2012
Wonderful peaty aroma, with some apricot. Color is orange./amber/golden. Nice mild bitterness on the tongue. Soft carbonation. Flavor makes up for somewhat watery feel in mouth.

wimpyjoe (3561) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2012
Clearly a Shepherd Neame brew in its distinctive hop malt style. Fairly dry in the palate.

BlackHaddock (3500) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2012
March 2011: Clear 500ml bottle, no best before date found. Poured into an Abbot Ale glass tankard: lovely amber coloured body, clear and clean looking. On top sat a white head of bubbles, slowly subsiding. Citrus and hoppy aroma, nothing heavy, but an aroma none the less. More hop than malts in the flavour, tangy and fairly crisp in the mouthfeel. Another average bottled beer from Shepherd Neame, they seem to make hundreds of them!

suprchunk (2101) - Crestview, Florida, USA - MAR 12, 2012
Copper colored pour. One finger off-white head. A little bit of lacing as it quickly falls. Skunky aroma, some malt, and a bit of perfume. Very hoppy up front, that quickly gives way to a dry maltiness. Thin and doesn’t finish all too well.

JorgeLee (1153) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 5, 2012
Bottle from Sainsbury’s. A bitter with a copperish colour and a sweetish spicy hoppy aroma. Taste is malty, with some light fruitiness and brief hoppy finish. For a supermarket own label this is ok - definitely tastes like a passable traditional bitter (or more specificaly a Shepherd Neame beer) - but nothing special.
