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.

Labled as an IPA,(bought in Selfridges,Manchester) but for me has none of the known qualitys of this type of beer.As a beer in its own right though...its really good.Nice golden colour and sweet aroma with a lovely chocolate mouthfeel.I would be quite happy to drink this all night.

pours a golden/ruby colour with a large head which diminished quickly. Aroma is hoppy, with alcohol and a touch of fruit and caramel. felt a little thin to me (although i suppose it is only 5.6%) with a bitter finish.

Ungstrup (32175) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 26, 2005
[Bottle conditioned] A hazy amber beer with a small off-white head. The aroma contains quite a bit of alchol, but also some hops. The flavor is powerful with strong notes of alcohol, caramel, and bitter hops. The end is quite bitter.

Sigmund (6115) - Tau, NORWAY - MAR 7, 2005
500 ml bottle, bought at Selfridge’s, London. This bottle conditioned "original" IPA has a slightly hazy deep golden colour and a fluffy head. The hops are what it’s all about in the aroma and flavour - lovely citrussy aroma with hints of oak and leather, flavour has a distinct resin-like bitterness with notes of grapefruit on a subdued background of dusty malty sweetness. Interesting beer.

Mungo (2471) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2005
Botle conditioned. First thing to strike me is a faint ’homebrew’ aroma. Malty with nutty sulphurous yeast aromas. Not sweet with a slight hoppy 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 (1854) - 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.

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.
