The colour is copper; the low head is airy and off white.

The smell is mild with some notes of smoked ham, bitter hops and a hint of yeast.

The taste is creamy with some American-micro-like hoppy flavours (Fuggles?), the malt is a little bit roasted. The flavours develop into a generous bitterness with a medium-sized body. The aftertaste is bitter with citric/chemical notes.

The carbonation is mild with medium sized bubbles.

This beer is actually the same beer as the previously Shepherd Neam's Best Bitter, replacing the latter and renamed as such. Tasted by half-pint at the Cask and Glass, a Shepherd Neame's house nr. Victoria station, London.

A: pale copper hue with great clarity; the beer head is thin but tightly foamy with some retention. Looking very fresh and on form~~
S: citric-fruity hops (EKG?) dominates the nose, imparted with a light wave of floral fragrance on a lower layer of damp/muddy hint of Fuggles hops. Balanced, fresh.
T: a good malty input makes a slightly sour-sweet (pear+plum) fruity overtone, leading to a moderately bitter and hoppy aftertaste, while the bitterness from citric hops lingers better than the hoppy aroma or flavour in the mouth.
M&D: smooth and softly carbonated, the texture is ideal for a fresh bitter served on the handpump. An easy-drinking session best bitter, though there's not much in terms of flavour to keep one's interest forever~~
