WittendenExcellent24 Feb 2013 I hadn't had this before:tastey malts with intriguing farmyard hops, without the astringency of Master Brew. Dark amber. Reaffirms my faith in Sheps.

IanExcellent26 Feb 2010 Crazy, I come all the way from Kent where I canít find it, to Liverpool, where I can. I almost missed the pump clip at the end of 6 handpulls and had to squint to see who the brewer was of this amber ale. Of course, once I saw what it was, I ended up drinking a pint and a half of it. Deep amber in colour, with a lasting cream head. Itís a decent amber with that rich slight roasted maple syrup pecan nut flavour which I like so much. Some Sheps yeast. Now almost obligatory hop all over it. Canít believe it. Theyíre turning out good stuff. Great malts, really good hops on the finish, like earthy really fresh hop. Brilliant.
