Shepherd Neame Brilliant Ale (5.6%)

Brilliant AleBased on a recipe originally brewed between 1825 and 1855, Shepherd Neame continue to impress with their Classic Collection.
Pouring a light, bright sunshine straw, Brilliant Ale smells of honey sandwiches eaten in the garden, sweet airy and warm.
Te beer begins with a hint of Shepherd Neame today, a big digestive bran slap, but it’s almost immediately enveloped by a soft sweet caramel and pear juice that’s delightfully delicate.
The hops are crisp and fresh too.
A light citrus sharpness, garden foliage bitter freshness and a finish that’s as prickly as sucking nettles, honey rich and more-ishly dry.
I’m really looking forward to tasting where this collection goes next.
