2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12th April 2010. Clear amber beer. No head, low carbonation. Semi dry palate. Dry malt and then some balancing bittering hop that is orangey. Mildy bitter aftertaste. An unremarkable US beer reproduced in all itís unremarkableness in the UK. What was the point again?

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
[Gravity cask at Back of Beyond, Reading] Amber. Tastes of green leaves and earth with a slight tingle of spice and a hefty, mouth-numbing bitterness. Felt it had more than a hint of the Shepherd Neame Fremlins Bitter about it, which made me wonder if either Sheps copied this for their own festival beer, or if Sheps actually had more influence over this brew than Goose Island (I havenít tried the original Honkers Ale, so canít compare on that basis). Either way, I disliked it.

Hand pulled cask at The Moon And Sixpence (JDW) Hatch End. Copper brown with a healthy off white head. Good resinous spicy styrian goldings with caramel/toffee malt base. I tried this a few times and found it rather variable.

Pint at JDW Newcastle. Interesting and tasty ale, sweet banana and malty flavours with a grainy earthy background and a lightly bitter straw like finish. Decent.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask at Victoria Wetherspoons, London. An amber coloured pour with a slight head. Fruity aroma. Tastes of caramel, malt, slight hop taste, pretty bland really. Maybe this was not a good sample but I was expecting so much more.

Cask handpull at County Hotel, JDW, Ashford. Great condition. Lovely head. Yes cheese yeast aroma, itís ok, got great character, but not sure I like it that mcuh. Decent best bitter, good hop on finish. Itís like Sheps Kentís Best but a bit hoppier, good lasting bitterness. Plenty of yeast character.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask at JDW Hounslow beer fest. Coppery with a largeish medium-fine light beige head and loads of green hops on the nose. Lots more green herby hops in a chewy malty body, then a bitter astringent finish. Itís nice, but perhaps a bit too reminiscent of the other Sheps beers.
