Pint from cask. Amber body, not much head. Lots of hops and malt. Very sugary, but the hops cut through.
Pours amber with a clingy white head. Soft dark fruits and caramel malt in the aroma. Taste is sweet honey/caramel malt, raisin, sugary dark fruit. Sweet, but nice. ladnewton (1964) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 7, 2016
Cask at the Old Neptune, Whitstable on 7th May 2016. Copper with thin dying off white film and almost no lacing. Malty caramel aroma. Caramel malts and berry fruits in-mouth. Nutty, malty finish with some slight vast fruitiness. Smooth, flattish mouthfeel with medium body. Scopey (14778) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 29, 2016
Cask at The Duke of Wellington, Chelsea. It pours clear amber with a decent white head. The aroma is sweet, fruity, dull caramel, bread and malt loaf. The taste is crisp, mellow bitterness, caramel, toasted grain, good fresh fruity character and tangy berry with a dry finish. Light - medium body and fine carbonation. Perfectly pleasant drinking and the best of the Shep Neame’s beers I had on the day. Mortlach (2347) - Rome, ITALY - JUN 3, 2015

Cask, clear daek amber, small creamy offwhite head. Light caramel aroma. Malty, caramel flavour, hoppy notes. Sweetish. No carb. Not impressive but refreshing. Sigmund (7537) - Tau, NORWAY - APR 10, 2015
Cask half pint at the Cask and Glass, London Victoria. Copper colour, moderate white head. Typical Shepherd Neame house character in the aroma, a special combination of malty and fruity. The flavour is fairly dry, some malts with nutty and biscuity notes. A little more of the Early Bird hops would not hurt. TedE (1332) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 30, 2015
Pint at Westminster Arms, London. Floral hop nose. Copper clear beer. Thin but frothy head. Mouthfeel is thin with clean hop bitterness. There’s a touch of malt then.........long floral hop finish. Insubstantial but refreshing. kwik-lime (1939) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 4, 2014
Bit of a watery palate, hint of citrus coming through the typically dull earthiness that seems to characterise nearly everything Shepherd Neame do. Boring brown British bitter. DandyLion (518) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2014
Cask @ The Clarendon Leicester. Bright copper colour. Tight white head. Looks good. Tastes a bit watery, sweet malts. medium bodied and nice slightly hoppy aftertaste.
