johndoughty (5600) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 17, 2013
Bottle. One of this brewery’s cheap and cheerful range ( That’s not what they call it but in reality that’s what it is ). Clear bottle with an orange appearance. Some fruitiness with bitterness in the background. For ninety nine pence what do you expect? Has more taste in at than a lot of more expensive lagers. Don’t go out your way to buy it but if you come across it then give it a try. FatPhil (17334) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 11, 2010
500ml bottle (K Kamppi, Helsinki)liinis (1791) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 16, 2010
6+ Crisp citrussy aroma.
4 Mid orange, brief head.
7 Clearly the Shepherd Neame house taste at first, but there’s a lovely twist of chocolate in there too as it reaches the back of the mouth.
3 Slightly watery palate, crisp carbonation. Easy quaffer. Finish a little citrussy, but there’s no real bitterness in there.
13 Not particularly complex. The citrussy and chocolaty aspects stick out rather than providing a well integrated range of flavours. A maltier backbone would help join the two.
4,0 %alc. Very loyal to the Shepherd Neame style as they tend to be all very alike. Very easy drinking. Dark gold colour with a small white head. some brandy noticeable there. nice hops. nihtila (3999) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 13, 2016

Bottle. Light amber, small and fully diminishing head. Light to moderate malty and sweetish aroma, fruit and toffee, some vanilla. Body is light to medium, malty and sweetish flavor, some fruit and toffee. Short to average finish with toffee and fruit. Typical quite light bodied Shepherd Neame, no surprises.

0.5 l bottle, thanks hanniku! Golden to copper color. Nutty, biscuity and floral aroma with hint of rum, vanilla, tart fruitiness and pine resin. Dry flavors of nuts and cocoa with tart fruitiness and minerals. Dry crisp finish. A bit different type of Shepherd ale, but the usual crisp finish. TheCametron (2480) - CZECH REPUBLIC - APR 1, 2012
Bottle. Clear amber with diminishing white head. Nose is pale English hops. Taste is sweet toffee with a gentle bitter finish. Not bad. Very Shepherds Neamey.
