Cask handpull at The George, Egerton, Kent. My god, a Sheps beer with hops!!! Good fullness in the body and good hop bitterness and sting on the finish. I would have stayed for another but I had pubs to visit.

rosenbergh (6474) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 18, 2010
500 ml bottle. Finland.
Clear golden colour with small to average off-white head. Floral fruity slightly skunky hoppy bitter aroma with some maltiness. Floral bitter hoppy flavour. Stronger hoppiness than normally in English Bitters. England failed in WC, was this the reason?

Pasteurised - maybe split?
500ml bottle (Kuikka, Helsinki)
Big hoppy waft on opening and pouring. Perfumey and some husky malts in the aroma - very much the shepherd neame fingerprint. Mid gold, small tight head. Crisp carbonation, and quite a thin palate. Retronasals quite grainy. Quite mushroomy body, lots of malt, grainy, but a great wave of hops too. Finish is mostly bitter and biting noble hops, lots in the range between EKG and Spalt. Enjoyable bitter for a session, not too emasculated by pasteurisation.

ralphdot (981) - Billingham, Durham, ENGLAND - NOV 13, 2011
4.0% gold colour with a poor head, citrus hop aroma and taste, slightly too much hop.

joe19612 (1801) - camberley, Surrey, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2010
Bottle from Lidl Camberley. Pours a very pale brown colour with a large white head. Good floral and hoppy aroma, with a malty bitter taste with a dry finish.

BeerBaboon (1516) - FINLAND - NOV 11, 2010
Golden with white, frothy head. Grassy, floral hop aroma with notes of toast. Soft carbonation and mouthfeel. Surprisingly little bitterness here. I was expecting more. The flavour is a bit on the hoppy side. Some fruit is in the mix.
