berkshirejohn (6372) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2012
50cl bottle from Lidl, stated ABV 3.8%. Straw with a billowing off-white head; aroma of somewhat tired malts and English hops; soft with straightforward caramel malt flavours; and with a dash of hops gives a slight spice to the finish. Not bad for a bargain basement beer.

BlackHaddock (6980) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 9, 2012
Clear 500ml bottle, The Ten Hop Beer With A Kick according to the front label: poured into an Abbot Ale glass tankard 1st Nov 2011, the bottle being best before Jul 2012. Orangey, amber colour, clear and bright, on top a lovely full head of snow white bubbles, extra bubbles can be seen rising through the body to replenish the crown. The smell is hoppy (well what did you expect?), but not overly so, those un-named varieties obviously counteract each other in the aroma department, as they did in the taste! I thought I was going to get some sort of West Coast of the US hop monster brew, this isnt anywhere near that, in fact it isnt even a standard UK hoppy IPA for hop content. It isnt even really bitter, not even at the end of the mouthfeel. Strange taste, the malts try and blend in with those aforementioned hops but dont really mix too well. Couldnt take to this beer at all, its another of Shepherd Neames cheap supermarket brews and it shows. It seems to me theyve found some old half sacks of hops and crystal malts: thinking well not waste these, lets brew another beer to fill supermarket shelves and make some easy dosh.

DruncanVeasey (8225) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2012
Unretired and retailing in Lidl at a quid a bottle. Clear brassy gold with a high, subsiding white foam. Aroma of butterscotch, typical Sheps flying saucer sherbet, some vanilla. Decent with that sourish mineral, Sheps thing; watery bitterness, rust, caramel. No hop flavours as such; just bitterness, maybe pine. Dull.

ralphdot (1086) - Billingham, Durham, ENGLAND - NOV 13, 2011
4.0% gold colour with a poor head, citrus hop aroma and taste, slightly too much hop.
