gegwilson (1286) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2014
Bottle from B&M. Amber with not much of a white head. Quite sharp and citrusy with bitter orange. Something of a caramel malt base. OK.

harrisoni (13894) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2013
Bottle from Sourced Market, St Pancras, been looking for this beer for some time as I didnít believe it existed. Clear amber colour thick amber head. Not as horrific as some Sheps bottle beers. Some pepper hop on aroma, some malt fruit and some sheps yeast. Bit too much toffee. Some white pepper hop on finish. Maybe a touch too sweet and a touch empty. Not as badly filtered as some previous beers. Decent hop on the finish.

Vaiz (3398) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - APR 16, 2013
Bottle at home. Clear amber pour, off-white head. Aroma of fresh citrus hops, Czech pilsener hops, slightly chemical, somewhat grainy. Flavor is a quick flash of hoppy Bohemian pilsener, followed by a watery emptyness. Quite strange short lingering flavor. Refreshing though.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2012
Bottled 27/12/12. An amber coloured beer with a whitish head. Stewed fruits and boiled sweets in the aroma. Bitter and fruity in the mouth. Obvious pasteurization yet in spite of that thereís a decent beer trying to get out as the fruitiness from wht I suspect are goldings is strong and tasty. This was surprisingly drinkable.

deanso (5487) - the Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 10, 2012
50cl bottle from Kellys Expat shop the Hague. Thin white head. Clear amber pour. Ok but missing something.

wimpyjoe (4203) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2012
Familiar sour, soapy bitterness in the distinctive Shepherd Neame style. Has a lingering bitterness.
