Sigmund (8010) - Tau, NORWAY - OCT 28, 2017
500 ml clear bottle, from a Sainsbury Local in Whitton, London. ABV is 4.5%. Copper colour, large white head. Typical Shepherd Neame aroma of lightstruck hops, not unpleasant though. Also toffee notes. The flavour has also toffee notes, but is not very sweet. Hints of citrus. Moderate hops. Nice enough to drink.

PanMarek (465) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 22, 2017
Dark, clear golden pour with thick, bubbley relatively quick foam. Medium/ light body with little fizz. Bitter finish. The nose is bready malt with good fruity hops. The malts tend to overwhelm the hops, but they come through in the end.

BeerViking (5125) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2017
Pours golden-brown, peppery hoppy nose with a hint of ginger, crisp and dry-bitter with that typical Sheps twang.

mR_fr0g (13977) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2017
Bottle at home picked up from Watford Sainsbury’s. A very clear copper coloured pour with a lasting off white head. Aroma is big harsh skunky grassy hop, onion, sileage, fermented grass, hint of brown bread. Flavour is composed of nutty mlats, iron, blood, rusty penny, nutty twiggy malts. Little chalky in the finish. Palate is semi sweet, thin, highish chalky carbonation. Not very good.
