Cask, Chelmsford, The Golden Fleece. Boring amber appearance. Descent white lacing. Plenty of amber malt. Relatively hoppy for Sheps. A lot of UK hops. Far too sweet but clean. Drinkable but just not my cup-of-tea.

Cask @ Hampton inn Hearne bay ! Not bad stuff , it tasted Americanized in vibe somewhat : hops kick it on nicely with pine floral grapefruit flavors. Resemblance to an air freshner in tang , metting Caramel richness that’s there but without textbox shepherd neame carboard malt flavours . A pretty pleasant and refreshing ale .

Cask at the Betsy Trotwood, 08/02/13. Clear amber brown with a thin beige bubbly head that retains well. Nose is caramel, light pine, hops. Taste comprises caramel malt, pine, hops, biscuit. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, some bitterness in the finish. Having had a twiggy mess from the same brewer on my previous drink - I feared the worse! However ... this was a great beer, hopped up bitter meets ESB. Would happily seek this out again!

Hand pulled pint, Basildon Rugby Club, Basildon, Essex, UK. Clear amber colour with a large frothy head, lasting laciness, Mid-white head. Aroma is malty with caramel, medium heavy hoppy, citrus Seville orange to lime, meadow hay, dry hop. taste moderate to sweet and tart with a long bitter finish. Body is medium, texture is clinging, carbonation is negligible. A nice session pint, I could happily quaff this all night.

the colour of this Ale i thought was wonderful. Good taste to it. Good use of hops in the beer, which made it in all a good standard Ale.

Not usually keen on Shephard Neame beers, although I’ve drank many of them. This is excellent well hopped with a great aroma, reminds me a bit of Old Speckled Hen
