BlackHaddock (7092) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAR 31, 2017
Clear glass bottle: 500ml, BBD Dec 17. Poured into a UK pint sleeve at home on 30th Mar 17. Amber brown with an off-white head. I actually liked this, a little malty nose and taste with a decent hop balance. My sweet tooth picking up the light malty sweetness straight away. Not bad at all for a cheap supermarket beer, people need to lighten up when rating such brews.

nocturnale (12) - Prudhoe, Northumberland, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2016
Pours a clear dark amber, with a very thin head. Aroma is mild, cant smell anything other than a bit of sweet malt. Taste is similar, watery and metallic and with a bit of earthy hop character. Didnt enjoy this one.

An English IPA perhaps, or like a hoppy Yorkshire bitter might be if it were brewed by Sheps with that distinctive leafy marmalade twang. As a quaffing beer, I like it.

This beer smells of hay. Tastes very metallic, and is definitely not an IPA. It is utter shite.

This is a bitter, although not a bad one it suffers from tasting the same as lots of other shepherd neame beers. An Amber ale with a caramel aroma, fruity flavour with dry hoppy finish. It is a good example of a kentish ale, but the ipa moniker is misleading and annoying.

peponi (1803) - Hannover, GERMANY - AUG 17, 2015
Aroma: herbs and caramel. Appearance: golden color and white head. Taste: medium bitterbess (herbal), light caramel notes, herbs everywhere, dry. Palate: medium body and medium carbonation, bitter finish. Overall: Average EPA.

Swaroga (2213) - Warszawa, POLAND - AUG 10, 2015
Amber color with a medium head. The beer has a delicate aroma overall. It has a typical for a bitter bread skin and caramel notes to it. Also some herbs, zest and cat piss. Flavor is the same but with lots of water. It has a dry dough and bread malt flavor and herbal bitterness in the aftertaste. The finish is medium long. Not a bad pint of dull bitter.

nodley (1) - Hull, East Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 18, 2015 does not count
I really like this one. It tastes much better than most beers Ive tried, and with it being an ASDA beer you can usually get four bottles for 5. Bargain.

SangreSani (468) - Głowienka, POLAND - MAR 22, 2015
Short head. Golden to amber colored beer. Good amount of hops in aroma, some malts and hints of honey. Hints of esters. Some melanoidins, I think. Delicate scent/flavor of hooch or whiskey. Light to medium bitterness. Lightly carbonated, slick texture. Medium body. British must have different thoughts on IPA style than Americans.
