Not one to ring the bells about, I found d it hoppy with this taste over powering anything else. Don’t think I would rush out and buy more but would be happy to drink if offers another. Drinking the bottled beer at 6.5?

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle from Tesco supermarket, Glasgow (£2.19):
Definitely one of the better Shepherd Neame beers I’ve tried, this one is likely the pick of the eight I’ve now tried. The beer was quite sweet with a good combination of caramel, toffee and sugars without seemingly sickeningly sweet. It’s by no means a classic beer but it was a nice one to sip away at on a cold winters night.

Drinkable, but strength is not complemented by taste. Ok, but would not buy again (if I remember).

Pours a clear brown with a fast-settling head, light aromas of caramelised apple and some earthiness. Quite gassy. Dry-sweet with an indefinite fruitiness, a little toffe, an alcohol warmth, and some herbal and earthy hops.
