2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, now at 3.8%, brown with an aroma of light citrus and spice, a bit watery, though with earthy and lightly tangy fruit malt. Very typical of a Sheps bitter - you’d easily guess it’s one of theirs.

I hope this is the right one. Drinking it in Prince of Wales in Clapham with a hastily written hand written sign on the front. Let's go for that one anyway. It's yummy. Nutty, chocolatey, caramel. Subtle. Really nice. I'll have another one.

500ml bottle from Rhythm and Booze - A good looking beer, deep russet with a pillowy white head. Nose is a little metallic, lots of caramel. Taste is equally metallic, a big malty kick. Nothing to write home about.
