3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, 0.5l, Stavanger. A refreshing ale. Mediums-bodied, unusual aftertaste - lacks some strength

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Decent pale ale with a good hoppy character. A slightly touch of diacetyl suits it well. Quite drinkable.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
50 cl bottle. Dark golden color. Nice off-white head. Fruity, floral, sweet malt/caramell. Banana in aftertaste. Dry bitterness, a bit syntethic. A strange beer, but not bad.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Orange-golden crispy clear colour. White head with a small tan. Creamy. Aroma brings a slight feel from hops, flower, malt and grass. Same goes with the flavor. A very small hint of biterness in the end.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, Fishers, Oxford. Redish copper, white cap of foam. Hard candy aroma, a bit of bready malt. Nice earthy hops, light tawny malt, bright carbonation. Unassuming, but a pleasurable glass. One of the nicest Iíve tried from Shep so far.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden with a nice head. the aroma leads my thoughts towards a field of summer flowers... The flavour is smooth and has a nice bitterness and hints of flower and honey. The overall impression is a light, refreshing ale with personality.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Clear deep amber with a solid offwhite head. Spicy hops aroma. Flavours are balanced, some maltiness prevails through the bitterness. Some toffee character, otherwise quite neutral. Watery texture. Drinkable, but not over-exciting.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
A good solid ale. Amber colour but a quickly disappearing head. Nice saltiness on the finish. Good without being exceptional. What I expect from a UK ale. Donít know about the organic line though. Canít say I care.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
500ml bottle. Pours an amber colour, ferocious carbonation leads to a big fluffy white head. Aroma is hoppy, flavour is a bland bitterness, finished off with a thin watery palate. This is an inoffensive but instantly forgettable beer and you can do so much better. I was given this bottle as a gift, I certainly wonít be buying one for myself.
