Production moved from White Shield brewery to William Worthington’s brewery in December 2010. Production 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.

AleRider78 (2088) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - APR 30, 2018
2014 rating. Pours a huge foamy white head and leaves thick dirty lacing. Has a light amber coppery appearance. Aromas are fairly tame, a bit malty with some mild herbal hops. Flavours of earthy and herbal hops. Much sweeter than expected, but also not as hoppy as wanted. Pretty smooth mouthfeel and easy going down.

Aroma: Medium berries, Medium-light earthy. Light cherries. Appearance: Clear, copper body. Small, off-white head. Small to fine bubbles, Good retention. Flavour: Medium dark molasses, licorice, berries. Medium bitterness. Medium-light earthy. Dry finish with bitterness, licorice. Mouthfeel: Medium body. Medium carbonation. Overall: Amazing aroma, but the flavour of licorice/molasses is stronger than what I expect of the style. 500 ml bottle. 12C. English IPA

tmrmwel (2915) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 28, 2018
Bottle, eleven months before bbd. Pours clear golden, with a big, dense, creamy head. Aroma is roasted malts with bread, toffee and caramels, as well as earthy hops with marmalade and herbal notes. Medium body, with soft to average carbonation. Flavour is bitter hops with pine, orange peel, marmalade and herbs, as well as malts with cereals, caramels and honey. Lingering hoppy finish.

GastonZgaga (23) - SLOVENIA - MAR 27, 2018
UPDATED: MAR 27, 2018 IPA, nenasilna, pitna, zelo primerna za vroče dni. Nekaj manj okusa in arome, a zato toliko bolj session. Če je cena ugodna, lahko poleti nadomesti Adnams Innovationa, ki pa ga, roko nae, ne doseže.
