allmyvinyl (7733) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 23, 2016
500ml bottle from Lidl. Pours clear amber with a short-lived white head, sounds like a euphemism for gay sex. Aromas of grassy hops, butterscotch. Taste is sweet and watery. Thin finish.

berkshirejohn (5512) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 11, 2015
50cl bottle from Lidl, Maidenhead. A pale amber pour with a loose white head; typical Shep aroma of grassy yeast; thin malty body with a touch of vanilla; and a grassy bitterness. A pleasantly drinkable budget beer.

SilkTork (5467) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - SEP 25, 2015
500ml clear glass bottle, filtered, from Lidl for £1.09. 3.8% abv. There’s little of interest here, but it’s cheap and drinkable. There’s some barleysugar and peanut malt with a touch of vanilla, banana and finishing with a powdery bitterness. Force carbonation is crisp and gassy.

Little aroma. No carbonation, settles to little head over clear still amber body. Ok mouthfeel but again little taste, watery consistency. Nothing to bring you to drink again.

StueyD (1549) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - MAY 28, 2015
A mid copper brown coloured beer with a thick off white head. A light, dusty malt aroma, with a background hoppiness. Dry mouthfeel. A dry biscuity malt taste with mild caramel, then a light bitterness, citrusy and a hint of grassiness. The finish continues the fruity bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Light golden summer beer with no head and light carbonation. Light biscuity nose, slightly stale. Taste is non-deScript thin fizzy biscuit with watery finish. Palate is watery. In conclusion, watery (but gains a point for being refreshing).

BeerViking (3589) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2015
Bottle from Lidl, amber with a fast-settling head, sweet caramel with hints of vanilla and toasted lemon. Body has sweet lemonade notes over the usual Shep’s hoppiness.

ManVsBeer (6866) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 22, 2014
Bottle from Lidl. Golden-amber with a thin head. Has a slightly sweet aroma with some hop evident. It’s a touch thin in its body but easy drinking, although not high on character.

500ml bottle from Rhythm and Booze - A flat looking orange body, no head. Nose is a bit metallic, with the taste very bland, and little mouthfeel. Not very good.

DruncanVeasey (7999) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2013
Split with KJ. A whole bottle would just, like, get me totally wasted. Slim haloed amber. Aroma of grain, honey-coated cereal and softly mildewed hopcone. Metallic rusty Weetabix flavour with bog standard weak orange and berry Shep hop. Hint of fennel. Whatever.
