Tasting Summary

These comments are the opinion of the individual reviewer and represent what they thought of the beer on a particular day in a particular pub. If a review is less favourable, it may be because the beer suffered somewhere in the supply chain between them and the brewery.

IanAcceptable26 Aug 2006 Earthy yeasty aroma. Yeast flavour in mouth, bit of earthy caramel and then tingly bitter finish. If it wasn't for the finish, it wouldn't have any flavour. Disappointing.

IanPoor02 Jul 2006 This was brown water with some beer type flavouring. Compared with the first 2 pints I had in the Golden Ball and Conningbrook, this was poor. I can see why someone would rather drink lager than this.

IanGood19 Nov 2006 Yep, this had all the usual characteristics, Sheps yeast aroma, some nice full caramel malt and some pretty nice tight hop. Fine session bitter.
IanAcceptable02 Jul 2006 Only half a mile from the Golden Ball, but this lacks the malty depth of the first pint I had down the road. Decent caramel on aroma, some hop. Thinner in mouth. Faint hop on end. Drinkable, but the Golden Ball pint beats this easily. Hops are still good though towards the end of the pint
IanAcceptable02 Jan 2006 Not quite as fragrant and hoppy as it can be. Some yeast, some caramel and some flowery hop. I had two pints without really noticing
IanGood14 Jul 2005 Amber brown beer. Sheps yeast and floral hops on nose, some caramel in mouth with yeasty tangy hop and acid finish. For the first time in my beer drinking life, I can actually say that I like this beer. Good for a session

Stephen HarrisAcceptable23 Jan 2013 I was weaned on this beer as a teenager. It was full of character, with a farmyard whiff (courtesy of SN’s old yeast strain) and a bite of Kentish hops. That was many years ago – and pretty much none of it now applies. Perhaps the most positive I can be is to say that this beer is ‘easy-drinking’.
