Pours copper color with a small head. Aroma of fruits, mild hops, caramel and grass. Flavor is the same, maybe some nuts also.
Fairly average bitter, no flavours are particularily dominant and I couldn’t taste the brandy which is given in the description, I think Viscount Admiral Nelsom deserves better Ethereal (2471) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 31, 2009
Cask at Wandsworth Common Halloween Beer Festival, 30th Oct 09. Amber with a big subsiding magnolia head. Nasty waxy aroma. Strong vanilla flavour. I think this might have been spoiled as it poured with a huge head. Hildigöltur (5103) - København, DENMARK - NOV 27, 2005

UPDATED: NOV 27, 2005 Cask (handpump), at the Cask & Glass, Westminster, October 2005. Apparently, the name comes from the fact that fact that, after Nelson was killed they dumped the body in a barrel of brandy to preserve it on the voyage home. However, when they got back they found most of the brandy had gone because the sailors had been "tapping the admiral" on the way. If there’s brandy in here it must be just a soupcon as I didn’t notice it. Otherwise, its a fairly typical copper-coloured Shep’s bitter with earthy hops, distinct bitterness, subtle berry fruit and a slightly astringent finish. Chiefly noteworthy for being the second Shepherd Neame beer that I’ve rated and Silk hasn’t.
