COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned; occasionally on cask.
Production moved from White Shield brewery to William Worthington’s brewery in December 2010. Prodiuction moved to the main Coors brewery in Burton in 2012 to keep up with increasing demand.
Ingredients: Halcyon barley, from the northern part of Norfolk; Sugar; Northdown and Challenger hops - including a hop extract; and a two-strain yeast supplied by Bass.
"It has a clean, fresh flavour and full bodied, balanced bitterness." Michael Jackson.
An iconic India Pale Ale (IPA) brewed to the same recipe as 1830. Aromatic hops, toasted cereal notes and hints of smoke and spice kindle White Shield’s embracing nose, enhanced by fragrant fruity characters and an intricate top-note of freshly baked bread. With time to condition, William Worthington’s unique dual yeast works up a sharp sparkle, crafting a full luxurious mouth-feel that combines with warming hints of alcoholic liqueur and White Shield’s ever so subtle peppery character, to create an exquisite bittersweet finish.

omhper (19337) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 10, 2006
[Cask at GBBF] Amber colour. Heavily resiny. Sweetish and medium bodied with rounded mouthfeel. Astringent very resiny bitter finish. Unrefined, but certainly sticks out.

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - JUL 26, 2006
Bottle. Light orange pour, with a medium layer of fairly coarse off-white bubbles. A sweet, flowery hop aroma with marmalade and light carmel. Briskly hoppy, with a toasty sweetness and a lingering orange peel flavor. After the real ales I’ve tasted recently, this seems highly carbonated stuff. But I can’t say I mind: this beer seems right being a little bombastic. And while it’s entered here as an ESB, it strikes me as being properly hop-forward enough to be an English-style IPA, as the label insists. Or just stay as listed here.

yngwie (13529) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 26, 2006
Bottled. Clear, sparkling, deep golden beer with a small off-white head. Sweet and malty aroma with some alcohol notes. Too weak I think. The flavor starts off with alcohol, but soon replaced by a sweet maltyness, caramel and hops. Medium to full body, with a very high carbonation level and sweetness. Quite sugary, malty finish. Maybe the carbonation level is to blaim, or maybe my expectations were too high, but I was disappointed. (060712)

radiomgb (2247) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 23, 2006
Bottle from <a href=http://www.ratebeer.com/Places/ShowPla target=blank>The Beer Shop in London, England. Orange-amber in colour. Long lasting fluffly off-white colour head, beautiful lace. The aroma was of light citrus (lemon and oranges), pale malts and a bit of caramel. The flavour is wonderfully bitter, floral, herbal and citrus hops, light bready malts, caramel sweetness. Bitter mouthfeel, medium body, high carbonation. Finishes with a lingering hop bitterness. Wonderfully refreshing.

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 14, 2006
Poured from the bottle, a slightly hazy and carbonated amber with a thin bubbly head. A strong sweet yeasty aroma with caramal and a lingering tartness left in the nose. The carbonation is present in the mouth, disguising what is a creamy mouthfeel initially, but moves to a strong sharpness with vinous flavours.

yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 2, 2006
Tasted 02/06/2006. 500ml bottle, discounted, from Rumble’s Wellington. Beautiful bright shiny copper, pinkish tints in the light. Large off-white airy head thins and laces. Barley sugars, pear, winey, sharpish yeast notes and some warm esters. Bone dry in the mouth, fruity, and quite yeasty and tannic on the palate. Strongly bitter middle-finish. Stonefruit lingers. Lightweight and prickly. An interesting drop but a bit sharp in the mouth. Riesling on the nose, cabernet sauvignon in the mouth.

thedm (4935) - Fort Wayne, USA - APR 26, 2006
This bottled brew marked best before 9/24/99 poured a large sized head of foamy mostly diminishing finely sized off-white colored bubbles that left behind a transparent carbonated golden brown colored body. The aroma was mildly malty. The mouth feel was slightly acidic and mediumly tingly from start to finish. The flavor contained notes of mild malts and hops.

Bottle conditioned. Medium sized fizzy ivory head that mostly diminished, poor lacing, fizzy carbonation, transparent, and an orange hue. Malty, hoppy, sweet, and a fruity nose. Flavor was bitter, sweet, malty, and a wood finish. Tingly, thin palate. Light-medium body.

Fin (7379) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 9, 2006
UPDATED: NOV 15, 2011 Bottle 08-04-06. A warm golden colour, pleasantly hoppy and bitter. An excellent beer really enjoyed as had not had it for some time. A7 A4 T8 P3 Ov16 3.8 Had this again Bottle picked up at Waitrose, Wallingford, Oxon 15.11.11 consumed the same day Pours amber with large foamy sticky white head, really sticking to the glass on the way down. The carbonation is quite busy initially but settles down after a while. Flinty nose, wet pebbles, touch tinny, with some dusty hops. Quite soft in mouth, a little orange but there is a huge lengthy bittersweet rush, finish is a little dry, toffee and malts show more as this warms, good beer. A7 A5 T7 P4 Ov14 3.7
