easily drinkable, well balanced beer, that I preferred to its more illustrious brother. White.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pint, bottle. Cloudy copper orange, fizzy, floral, and bready on the nose. Rose petal, caramel, bread dough, chewy, some grass and mustyness. Bubbly yet a touch thin in the finish. Got more interesting and flavorful the further I got with it. Very drinkable.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml bottle. Pours golden. 1 finger head dissappears, little lacing. Taste is soft, light with slight malty finish. Full mouth feel which expands in your mouth with big bubbles. The taste lingers. A nice light easy drinking beer.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Golden with a small head. Slightly bitter with a medium body.Is this really a Burton Ale as its says on the bottle? I just thought it was pretty boring. Not in the same league as White Shield.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from B&M Bargains, Barrow-in-Furness. Golden with a thin head. Hoppy with a pleasant pale ale light citrus fruit aroma, texture and taste which is slightly dry. Fizzes somewhat in the palate.

Perfect pour before the head disappeared before my eyes. Light gold with pure white head. Other than that, it’s JUST beer.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle from B&M. A golden ale with a quickly fading white head. I had high hopes for this given the reputation of White Shield. Boy was I disappointed. Very fizzy and lacking in flavour. It could almost be a lager. A little citrus and marmalade, but not much. Poor.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Huge, dense & fine head, as yellowish whipped eggwhite, stable, over clear orange-copper beer, lively carbonated. Honey, fresh herbs and parsley, slightly caramel nose. Again honey and indeed, herbs. Faintly fruity, some exotic fruit (no doubt the hops, but nowhere comparable to APA, IPA, etc.) Raspberry flowers. Very light body, highlighting the carbonation even more. Creamy feel from the head; little in the matter of palate. Palate - the Achilles’ heel of English brewers. Still, pleasing ale.

2.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dark yellow appearance, looks light and a little bit watery. The character is very chary. The story is almost entirely in the upper half of the mouth with some honey, vanilla, and a hesitant dryness. It’s a beer for hot nights but nothing for the armchair.
