500ml bottle from a Sainsbury’s Local. Bright golden-brown body. Bubbly ring to the rim of the glass. Aroma of caramel malts and fruity hops. Caramel malty taste added by herbal hops followed by a bittersweet ending. Quite ordinary leaving a soft and clean impression (shared with Finn, hotel room, London 01.11.2012).

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.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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!

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.
