3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle (K Kamppi, Helsinki)
6+ Crisp citrussy aroma.
4 Mid orange, brief head.
7 Clearly the Shepherd Neame house taste at first, but there’s a lovely twist of chocolate in there too as it reaches the back of the mouth.
3 Slightly watery palate, crisp carbonation. Easy quaffer. Finish a little citrussy, but there’s no real bitterness in there.
13 Not particularly complex. The citrussy and chocolaty aspects stick out rather than providing a well integrated range of flavours. A maltier backbone would help join the two.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottled 28/09/12. An amber coloured beer with pretty much no head. A sweet sugary fizzy fruity boiled sweet pasteurized nose. Sweet sweet cherry and raspberry flavours. Like a honeyed fizz bomb. Not appetizing.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
0.5 l bottle, thanks hanniku! Golden to copper color. Nutty, biscuity and floral aroma with hint of rum, vanilla, tart fruitiness and pine resin. Dry flavors of nuts and cocoa with tart fruitiness and minerals. Dry crisp finish. A bit different type of Shepherd ale, but the usual crisp finish.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Lidl, shared with Nick. Copper amber with a white head. Sweet, straightforward malt aroma and taste, very easy drinking. Lots of fizz. Some bitterness. I wasn’t sure what to make of the Nelson story. Some would find it offputting.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. One of this brewery’s cheap and cheerful range ( That’s not what they call it but in reality that’s what it is ). Clear bottle with an orange appearance. Some fruitiness with bitterness in the background. For ninety nine pence what do you expect? Has more taste in at than a lot of more expensive lagers. Don’t go out your way to buy it but if you come across it then give it a try.
