3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask half pint at the Cask and Glass, London Victoria. Copper colour, moderate white head. Typical Shepherd Neame house character in the aroma, a special combination of malty and fruity. The flavour is fairly dry, some malts with nutty and biscuity notes. A little more of the Early Bird hops would not hurt.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bit of a watery palate, hint of citrus coming through the typically dull earthiness that seems to characterise nearly everything Shepherd Neame do. Boring brown British bitter.

Cask. Copper ale with a decent white head. Biscuity nose. Slightly watery in taste, imparting a slight spice (ginger?) and some sweet malts. All a bit "bleh". Not bad, but not great.

Subtle taste of hops, malt and fruit. Very light and drinkable. Good if you’re having a few.
