COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned; occasionally on cask.
Production moved from White Shield brewery to William Worthington’s brewery in December 2010. Prodiuction moved to the main Coors brewery in Burton in 2012 to keep up with increasing demand.
Ingredients: Halcyon barley, from the northern part of Norfolk; Sugar; Northdown and Challenger hops - including a hop extract; and a two-strain yeast supplied by Bass.
"It has a clean, fresh flavour and full bodied, balanced bitterness." Michael Jackson.
An iconic India Pale Ale (IPA) brewed to the same recipe as 1830. Aromatic hops, toasted cereal notes and hints of smoke and spice kindle White Shield’s embracing nose, enhanced by fragrant fruity characters and an intricate top-note of freshly baked bread. With time to condition, William Worthington’s unique dual yeast works up a sharp sparkle, crafting a full luxurious mouth-feel that combines with warming hints of alcoholic liqueur and White Shield’s ever so subtle peppery character, to create an exquisite bittersweet finish.

McDef85 (42) - ITALY - JAN 13, 2016
Accenno dolce, maltato, quindi sopraggiunge un amaro comunque controllato. Classica ipa britannica, meno aggressiva e sopra le righe delle versioni americane.

simonblaine (576) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 18, 2015
Pours copper with frothy head. Aroma of malty grainy toffee. Taste is malt, grapefruit, very lightly hopped. Seeing as this is a Molson product it takes on the Molson trademark boringness. Meh.

Mortlach (2354) - Rome, ITALY - DEC 8, 2015
500ml bottle, gift from ippopotamo36 (thanks Alberto!). Pours light amber with a medium off-white head. Aroma of bubblegum, malt, strawberry, light citrus and peach. Flavour is well balanced but really boring and not clean at all. Medium to light body, medium carbonation. So so...

Pours cloudy amber with light white head. Aroma is of light hops and pink lemonade. Taate again of malt and pink lemonade. Not bad.

Bottle; pours clear amber with a beige head; sweet aroma with caramel, citrus fruits, and malt with some light floral notes; taste is bittersweet with caramel, malt, and some citrus notes; finish is slightly bitter with some caramel notes; okay but it seems like there is something just a little off with this one

3.8
Aggiebob (1179) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - NOV 16, 2015
Bottle. Dark gold with a frothy off-white head. Aroma is fruity - plums and grapes. The flavor is malty, fruity and has some spiciness to it. Very little bitterness for an IPA.
