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 .

Clear amber brown with a thin beige bubbly head that retains well.
Nose is caramel, light pine, hops.

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!

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
