3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled@8BeerQuickPicnicSession (thanks to the craziest bartender in the world!). BBE way past (2004), thanks, wherever you managed to dig this up from! Pale nutbrown colour with creamy mediumsized slightly off-white head. Aroma is quite much fruity and flowery hops along with some grass and yeast. Also some slight skunked notes, which may be due to beer being old. Flavourwise the beer is fruity and flowery hops with some slight yeasty notes as well as mild alcoholic sweetness. All in a nice balance. Both were a bit surprised how well the flavour has kept. Smooth!

A light golden brown colour with a thick white head. A citrus nose with a hint of hops. A hoppy flavour with a dry citrus finish. An award winning ale. (Bottle).

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Bottled) Amber-coppery colored with a small, somewhat lacy head. Quite mild, hoppy aroma. Sweetish, fruity and aromatic-hopped flavor with a bitter finish and some alcohol presence. Quite carbonated, medium-bodied palate. A pleasant and complex-hopped ale, but nothing to die for.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled, Pasteurised. Light copper colour with thin white head. Nice crisp malting giving a smooth mouthfeel, when you overcome the carbonation, the beer then flows into a full bitterness that warms with alcohol.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled.Very much in the Shepherd Neame style, amber with ginger tinge. White clumsy looking head. Big grassy hop presence in the glass. Dry, slight bitterness. Nice beer but nothing out of the ordinary. #Late mail, Improved in smoothness the warmer it got.

A little gem of a find. One of the less known of the Shepherd Neame portfolio of brews, but a real treat. Smooth and tightly bound malt and hop flavours with some zesty citrus tang to finish. Can certainly feel another one coming on soon.
