Bottle from Lidl, Sowerby Bridge. Copper with a thin head. There’s some small grainy pale malts in its aroma and taste which are more stated in the former. It has a fairly crisp drinkable texture with a low to medium bitterness. themightyjag (625) - - DEC 28, 2014

Clear dark Amber body, thin white head disappears very quickly. Nose is toffee, a little fruitiness. Flavour is malty, biscuit, metallic finish. Thin mouthfeel, lots of rough carbonation. Standard traditional English bitter fare.

500ml bottle from aldi. Pours clear copper, thick off-white head. Aromas are light lemon and toffee, some metallic notes. Taste is more of the same, watery and thin. Bitter finish, but lacks body. BeerViking (5087) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 10, 2014
Bottle, reddish brown with an off-white head and that absolutely typical Sheps sweetish hop aroma. It would be perfectly drinkable if it wasn’t way too gassy, although the only thing that distinguishes it from pretty much any other Sheps bottled beer is the toasted caramel note. StueyD (1586) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - OCT 29, 2014
A mid amber brown coloured beer with a frothy off white head. A strong fruity aroma on opening the bottle, zesty lemon and a sultana, mixed peel type smell. Medium dry mouthfeel. The taste start off with a bitter hop flavour of zesty lemon, this is ten followed by a slightly sweet, malty taste that brings on the dried fruit flavour and a caramel element that tempers the hoppiness into a short and slightly weak finish.

Bottle from Tesco, Wokingham. Poured a clear, bright amber colour, with a thin white head and some lacing. Aroma of straw, candy sugar and some faint malt character. Taste is very synthetic, in your run-of-the-mill Shepherd Neame bottled beer way. There’s some malty sweetness, cream soda and boiled sweets. Finish was the typical Shepherd Neame yeast, light grassy hop and force carbonation.
