3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pleasant floral aroma upon opening. Citrus and hops dominate and it had far more body than I had anticipated. Its rather complex flavours are not what I had anticipated from a relatively low strength beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from my local offie. Crystal bronze with a whipped egg white head and lace. Top, freshly-pinched hop aroma (at first) like one of my homegrown Fuggles..mingling with metal and digestive biscuit. I enjoy inhaling Shep’s beers more than I enjoy drinking them; drinks slightly rusty with sherbet-on-cardboard notes and a pleasant digestive biscuit and jellied orange-hinting quality attempting to shine. Watery, but with glimpses of character.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Copper colour. Aroma gives off a real scent of fresh hop buds. Flavour has a slight caramel, malty sweetness then refreshing hop. Very dry finish and a slightly metallic aftertaste. A 4% alcohol bitter that is refreshing and delivers plenty of flavour.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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 there’s a decent beer trying to get out as the fruitiness from wht I suspect are goldings is strong and tasty. This was surprisingly drinkable.
