One woman's ale journey

A beery boozy journey with delightful snacks along the way and a book in my hand.

Beer Advent Calendar - Door 18


I recognised Shepherd Neame's Spitfire straight away from the RAF symbol on the lid when I ripped open door 18.  It's rather fitting that it should be door 18, as my dearly departed next door neighbour was a Battle of Britain pilot and he would have been 18 years old in 1940, however, he flew a Hurricane as I was reminded every year when I gave him a birthday card with the 'wrong' plane on it.  This one's especially for you, John!

One of the better Shepherd Neame ales, Spitfire is 4.5% ABV in a 330ml bottle and is described as:

This 4.5% Kentish Ale was first brewed by Shepherd Neame in 1990 to commemorate the Battle of Britain which was fought in the skies above Kent some 50 years earlier.  A premium amber ale which has a lingering malt and hop flavour and is a well-balanced, thirst quenching and popular drink.
