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.

The Griffins Head, Chillenden, Kent

Jack WilliamExcellent07 May 2019 Very tasty. A premium price from Sheps as it is labelled a “craft beer”.

Chequers Inn, Doddington, Kent

WittendenGood06 Apr 2019 My first experience of Shep's Cask Club malarkey.Gentle citrus and grass.

White Hart, Canterbury, Kent

Jack WilliamGood16 Aug 2017 A very well kept, tasty blonde ale. No evidence of the provenance on the pump clip (as expected with Sheps) but certainly distinctive from the normal Sheps stable.

Jack WilliamPoor21 Sep 2014 Landlord spotted our faces as my son and I winced at the taste of this rather good looking beer - clear and with a reasonable head - but on the verge of sour. To his credit he immediately took the beer off and replaced the pints apologetically. End of the barrel - had been good earlier apparently.

HSBAcceptable05 Jun 2014 The pump clip claims American Craft Beer brewed by Samuel Adams. None of which would appear to be correct.
ChrisEGood05 Jun 2014 A pleasant refreshing beer but no wow factor.

The Compasses Inn, Sole Street, Crundale, Kent

AndrewGood29 May 2014 Nice refreshing pale gold beer. Grapefruit and green leafy hop bite

The Jamaica Wine House, City, Central London

Stephen HarrisGood27 May 2014 Pale golden colour. Nice hops. Quite bitter.

Henry Addington, Docklands & Isle of Dogs, Greater London

Stephen HarrisGood18 Sep 2013 Golden and a bit hazy. Soft mouthfeel and an interesting, light hop taste that is heading towards lager territory.

The Northern Belle, Margate, Kent

Philip PirripNot Tried11 Jul 2013 Says "American Craft Beer" on the pumpclip. Has Kent become the 51st state of the U.S. then? Or 52nd if Puerto Rico joins too.

Parrot, Canterbury, Kent

Martin the MildmanGood04 Aug 2012 A good clean tasting hoppy beer with American hop taste. Fruity finish. My score 15/20.

The Swan, Maidstone, Kent

AlenomoreExcellent31 Jul 2012 Still in good nick.
AlenomoreExcellent29 Jul 2012 Not sure of the brewing credentials of this ale but it was a top class brew. Very refreshing.

The Royal Oak, Mersham, Kent

ChrisEExcellent20 Jul 2012 A collaboration brew between Sheps and the Boston Beer Company to provide a pale summer ale with a mix of American and English cascade hops giving a strong flavour of grapefruit. I had the very end of one cask, followed by a pint from a fresh cask, both were very good.
