WORTHINGTON’S WHITE SHIELD

Worthington's White Shield. “Closer to cask for a fuller flavour” it says on the neck of the bottle, along with a Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) stamp of approval on it.

On the front of the bottle it claims to be “Our finest India Pale Ale for true IPA connoisseurs”. At the end of all the marketing nonsense it says it’s brewed by the Molson Coors Brewing Company, the world's seventh largest brewer by volume.

Amber colour with a head that quickly dies after pouring. Sweet malt flavour that smells like a can of malt extract. Thin mouthfeel and low carbonation.

The taste? A harsh vegemite-like malt flavour with an alcohol bite. It tastes like a first attempt at a kit and kilo homebrew. Once again, another rubbish English beer.

No wonder they're being belted in The Bashes.

 

2/10
