2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle Red/Amber colour small white head, some malts and hops in the aroma and there is also some in the mouth, some bitterness but overall for their flagship beer whilst there is little to fault this, it’s about as bland and unexciting as beer gets.

Very good Shepherd Neame pint. A slightly stronger and darker version of Masterbrew. Brown in colour with that coppery Neame taste. Again, a beer for any occasion!

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Brownish-red color with a small head that fades quickly. A very slight skunky aroma that turns sweet. Flavor is malty too with caramel notes, ending in a moderately bitter, dry nutty finish. Light to medium bodied.

UPDATED: OCT 25, 2013 rated same night as Shepherd Neame’s Asda brew, Gentleman Jack.
More malty etc, but I genuinely slightly preferred ’Jack’
Not stunning, but sessionable and enjoyable all the same.
Rerated aug 2013. Can . 4.2 abv. Lovely head retention. Lovely look and full mouthfeel . Had few and wanted more. Kept them for another day.
> maybe overrated - brought down a wee bit

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Reddish amber, clumpy off-white head. Some fruity malt and wood in the nose. Robustly bitter finish, but little else of interest. Especially on top of a Church End Poacher’s biitter. Completely unremarkable.

Bottle. Deep amber colour with a creamy small white head. Scents of toffee and some malty sweetness. The taste becomes dry and hoppy bitter. Medium carbonated. It has some citric tones.
