One woman's ale journey

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

Shepherd Neame Rudolph's Reward

This was another of my Christmas ale gifts and I think Rudolph did so much hard work over Christmas, he deserves a beer-shaped reward.  This is an amber ale which has a slight red hint to it, a real ginger ale.  Although it pours with only a medium head, the head is retained whilst drinking and laces the side of the glass.

It does smell faintly of Christmas - orange with a hint of spice and chestnuts roasting on an open fire.  It has the distinctive metallic aftertaste of most Shepherd Neame ales but first you get a fruit and nut hit of very refreshing ale.  It's actually one of the better Shepherd Neame ales I've tried.

Brewed by Shepherd Neame, Kent
3.8% ABV
