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.

(Bottle) Pours a lightly cloudy amber with a small white head. Aroma of florals and citrus. Flavor of mild hops, not much else. Fairly mediocre English bitter.

Stew41 (1736) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - JAN 26, 2005
Pours a big fluffy head with good retention. Looks IPA like with orange / coppor hues and smells pretty close with some herbal, hoppy notes. Very malt driven palate with no bitterness or hops seen at all early but thet did appear over time. Malt notes are very nice, sweet and have a milky feel. Nice beer but not text book me thinks.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - JAN 24, 2005
Bottle. Had a big nose. Taste was slightly medicinal, but in a nice way. Slightly dirty tasting with a ferric hint. Not my cup of tea, but I can see how other people could enjoy this. Thanks to maelb and Kevin42.

I finally get to try this.... The modern bottle, painted directly on the glass, is exceptionally well designed. An orange/lemon fruity twange comes out of the caramel. Gentle aroma. Good frothing head, golden color. Lingering simple bitterness but the flavor is more pedestrian. Thinnish body. Not all that remarkable in my opinion; the aroma trumped the flavor by a wide margin. Thanks maeib and Kevin42!

Emil (6066) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 11, 2005
Hazy golden color and a big off white head. Malty aroma with a hint of hops. Bitter taste in a medium body. dry finish. Not bad.

jfm (1724) - Holbæk, DENMARK - JAN 9, 2005
Light amber color with a slight off white head. The taste is a light malty base with a light bitter finish. Rather thin.

gwoodin (43) - Birmingham, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2004
Disappointing. Low on flavour, with a slight sulphur taint. This beer has had several changes of brewer in recent years. It may be nostalgia, but "it dont taste like it used to".

bottled 500 ml. Amber medium offwhite head. More malty than hoppy not as complex or hoppy as I would like

hopscotch (9163) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 24, 2004
Crystal clear, amber ale with a frothy, khaki head. This stuff smells a bit fruity, but tastes a touch like iced-tea with fizz. It’s not offensive at all. The bottle says IPA, but my nose and taste buds say English pale ale or maybe even a bitter. This one would make a pretty good session brew.
