yngwie (14146) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 5, 2011
Bottle. A firm, small, off-white head sits on top of a clear, dark golden body. The aroma is on the malty side, with bread, biscuits and some pleasant hoppy fruityness. Too malty I think. That goes for the flavor too, it’s more malty than I’d like it to be. Some fruity and lightly grassy hops chime in, but I think it’s too malt forward. Medium body, quite dry. Not my kind of bitter, but an honest beer anyway. 111105

harrisoni (14138) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 16, 2010
Bottle from Sainsburys, Maidstone, Kent. Attractive deep amber colour with a rim of beige head. Smells of pasteurised beer with vague Sheps yeast. It’s another pasteurised Sheps beer. Why do UK beer companies feel they need to do this? I mean I’ve had cask beer today that tastes beautiful and wonderful and then have to drink this bollocks at home? Come on Sheps, you are better than this.
