SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - JAN 1, 2011
Handpump at the brewery. Deep amber color with good clarity and a small but lasting head. Light toffee, dry, burnt caramel and very light hops in the aroma. Bitter flavor with light toasty malt and burnt caramel for balance. Medium bodied with lower carbonation. Finishes a little minerally and chalky, drying in the end.

Clear chestnut cognac brown. Off-white head. Aroma is alot of butterscotch and caramel malts. Taste is more or less the same, nutty, some slight citrus action. This is a good session beer.

evergreen0199 (3276) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2009
Cask at Rickmansworth WSpoons. An amber coloured pour with a small fluffy white head. Aroma is quite sweet and fruity. Tastes of caramel, dark fruit, a bit sweet, slightly bitter. Quite pleasant but I am not really a fan of Shepherd Neames beers generally.
