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.

ThomasE (5174) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 1, 2007
Hazy amber colour with a dense off white head. Malty, light caramel sweet aroma with a hoppy fruity note. Hoppy fruity flavor with a dry and bitter finish.

Luthor (1) - SWEDEN - JAN 5, 2007 does not count
One of my absolute favourite ales. No longer available here in Sweden, I have not tasted this jewel för a few years now. But this summer I will spend my vacation in U.K....

pivnizub (10906) - Bochum, GERMANY - DEC 27, 2006
Bottle: Amber coloured, slightly hazy, big fluffy off-white head, lacing and slowly collapsing; robust fruity (red berries) and malty/caramelly nose with a very distinctive hoppy-aromatic touch; stronger bitter flavour, quite dry, light to medium bodied; dry aromatic-bitter finish, balanced by a caramelly fruitiness. A fine stuff...........

Gethinbeer (2452) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - DEC 17, 2006
Malty aroma. Copper appearance with a crisp white head. Tangy, metallic flavour. A crisp bitter ale.

KnutAlbert (6798) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 6, 2006
50 cl bottle, shared with larsga in London. Amber beer with firm head. Aromatic, lots of flowers (bird cherry). Medical tones, quinine. Very crisp and dry finish. An interesting beer as well as a good one.

larsga (7676) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 5, 2006
Big offwhite creamy shiny head. Hazy deep orange body with carbonation. Light citric hop and softly medicinal aroma. Sweetish citric malt and hop taste with medicinal aftertaste. Nutty, malty notes. Nice! (0.5l bottle.)

joergen (29611) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 11, 2006
Bottle. Clear amber coloured with a white head. Aroma of fruits, caramel and hops. Flavour of fruits, caramel and hops.

bager (2120) - Copenhagen N, DENMARK - NOV 5, 2006
Bottled. Amber coloured with a rather large head. Slightly sweet and malty with nootes of spices and hops and flowers. Somewhat dry finish.

Cornfield (5569) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - OCT 16, 2006
Bottle: This poured a deep copper body with a sustained, creamy off-white head. The aroma is sweet toffee, fresh apples, and a sharp floral hopping. Smooth. The flavor is a skilled blending of toffee, caramel apples, crushed nuts, and a soft herbal bitterness to balance it all out. It finishes on a fruity, caramel note with an underlying floral bite. Complex and tasty.

bluekuma (97) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2006
Bottle. Bronze with a lasting foamy white head. Aroma of hops & lemons-slighty toasty. Fairly complex taste with that kind of condensed complexity common in british bottle-conditioned ales. So we’ve got toasted almonds, bubblegum, coconut, a metallic edge and a bitter, grainy dryish finish. Kind of alright then... yet somehow not quite up to it’s legendary status.
