Very ordinary Sheps light bitter. Light hoppy nose, a little sweet malt, slight peppery hop finish, but where’s the spice? This is a travesty when compared to the draught ale of the same name.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
500ml bottle as a gift, 3.8%. Clear dark amber, sparkling, decent foamy off-white head. Aroma is honey-ish syrupy malt, musty, lightly metallic. Body is medium, pretty high carbonation, spritzy and quite foamy. Taste is tangy, metallic malts, thin and watery, soft bitterness. A slow drinking bitter due to metallics and over-carb. Really not that drinkable, gassy. Not for me.

Bottle from Lidl Wrekenton. Pours chestnut brown, flavours of nuts, berries but a little faint. It's ok for a cheap beer but not too exciting

Bottle. ( Clear ) Typical signature flavour. Some spiciness but lacks body. Pleasant but not really a Christmas beer.

Bitter is the word. A nice flavour but not very full, bitter on the taste and on the palate.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma has a lot of sweet caramel notes with a hint of sugariness and may be a touch of spice. Flavour loses most of the good elements of the aroma and leaves a lingering watery bitterness. This is an OK beer but in no way outstanding.
