<i>Cask Conditioned at J.D. Watherspoon - The Shakespear’s Head, London, 4.4% ABV</i>harrisoni (19159) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 16, 2005
Hazy deep blond color; thin creamy head. The aroma is light, perfumy, flowery (very light elderflowers). Dry toffee flavor, quite strong bitterness, but nothing special.
Cask @ County Hotel (JDW) Ashford. Caramel in colour, Shepherd Neame distinctive yeast nose and citric nose. Malty caramel and fullish in mouth with slightly dry finish, slightly earthy. For a Sheps beer, I quite liked it

Cask Conditioned at a JDW. Orange amber beer with bubbly white head. It’s surprising that Sheps have retained this beer just for JDW Festivals, much more could be made of it. There is a dusty hoppiness throughout, the same flavour you get from chewing a hop bud, perhaps a little overwhelming, but it is definitely Fuggles. A light crisp base to carry the flavour, which it does well. On the drier side, very enjoyable. Fin (10820) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 19, 2008
Cask at The Penny Black, JDW Bicester, Oxon, Pours light gold with white head, soft feeling in the mouth. Simple hoppiness, light creamy vanilla, and the a nice light easy going bitterness. leaparsons (10696) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 23, 2008
