Muggus69 (2279) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - OCT 9, 2008
Notes from old review... Served at cellar temperature in Duvel glass. Another Shepherd Neame beer, and somehow I’m no longer excited of the prospect. The nose on this one seems more standoutish, toffeeish malt in there but more hop dominant; a bit of citrus, orange and lemon, almost seems like a soft drink. Bit less stale perhaps? Clear copper body with foamy white head and lace. Initial flavour is quite nice; nutty toffee malts, zesty lemon and orange hops. Body drops off quite quickly and left with a lingering dryness that isn’t too appealing, kinda soapy. Not bad, not great, there’s something off putting about it.

Aroma has some caramel malts and fruity hops. Clear, amber-copper coloured with a lasing, white head. Taste is sweet and more bitter towards the finish.

LordCorkscrew (1774) - Ronco Scrivia (GE), ITALY - JUN 30, 2008
Bottiglia trasparente da 50cl... non guasta! (miracolo); versa color ambrato chiaro con poca schiuma ma molto aderente e compatta bella bella. Laroma floreale ma piuttosto dolce, quasi zibibbesco, con una nota sbruciacchiata tenue. Il sapore non male: inizialmente eccessivamente dolce, sviluppa un buon amaro che si stempera presto e lascia sentori di cannella e marron glac.

wheresthepath (2230) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 11, 2008
[500ml bottle from Asda High Wycombe] Shared with Jim. Like a German pilsner mixed with a bitter. Horribly fizzy, dry and sour. Not good at all.

Rune (11814) - Troms, NORWAY - MAY 9, 2008
I managed to reach Sainsburys at Tottenham Court Road just before closing time. After a long flight from the north the first beers are a real pleasure to drink. Typical Shepherd Neame taste with nutty and sweet caramel malt, finishing with a note of plain hop bitterness. Beady aroma. Clear dark amber body under a thin, but lasting white head. Clean, foamy and thin to moderate palate. Alright as a starter for a week England (29.04.2008)

UPDATED: SEP 21, 2009 I love this type of hoppy drink, but too often they are way too flat like this one. amber colour, thick white head. strong hops, acidic, but smooth like it says.
