Sigmund (6895) - Tau, NORWAY - FEB 12, 2002
UPDATED: MAR 11, 2005 (500 ml bottle). Exquisite aroma, beautiful colour, very bitter aftertaste (perhaps too bitter?) Rerate: I regret part of my first comment: The flavour is NOT too hoppy - its just an acquired taste. And the aroma IS exquisite!

Ruprekt (20) - Canterbury, ENGLAND - NOV 10, 2006
I like to call this ale The Bothie as its the classic English allrounder. Hoppy, refreshingly bitter and has that distinctive Kentish fizz. Is there any occasion where this wunderale cannot be de supped with pleasure? Is there? The answer is no.

davidm (2069) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - DEC 26, 2010
Bottle 500ml. Great beer. Aromas of burnt caramel, nuts, flowers, pine, and a hint of butter. Taste has a sweet start, with lingering bitterness, and very good length. Palate is silky, with a medium body. Amber, with a frothy head.

Tom303 (122) - Northumberland, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 17, 2013 I really like this. Amber/golden colour. Aroma is sweet/toffee and a touch of typical shepherd neame pungent hops coming through. Taste finishes quite bitter and dry but there is a bit of fruit and sweetness to start. a bitter bitter with a nice balance overall. Fairly lively carbonation. A fine mellow easy drinking ale with plenty of flavour.

Danev76 (505) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 7, 2014
Slightly bitter aroma. Cloudy amber colour with excellent head. Nicely balanced between bitter hop and malt, smooth finish. Light body with medium carbonation.

djoeye (4000) - Troms, NORWAY - OCT 27, 2013
Bottle 50cl abv4, found at Isrenna Ica, and Matservice Eurospar Langnes, Troms. Offwhite head, down to a 2mm layer on the beautiful and lively amber body. Rich scents of malts and hops. Good hoppy taste with grass, barbecue notes, and bitter. Mouthfeel very seriously balanced. Ending with bitter, grass, leaves, metal, smoked wood. Overall a rich tasting beer.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - DEC 22, 2000
A good ale, nice nose and a moderate spicyness, some fruit tones, but then thats not a plus with me.

rauchbier (3815) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JUL 30, 2002
Bottled. Chestnut brown, good head and condition. Big hop resin aromas, lots of hop flavour and bitterness in the mouth but low on malt and quite thin and steely. Mainly hoppy in the short finish.

UPDATED: JUN 18, 2007 Another great Neame beer. Golden in colour with that coppery distinctive Neame taste. Spitfires younger brother - Very drinkable; an ale for any occasion!
