Shepherd Neame

New Dawn (5% ABV, bottle)
Clear white golden with a white head that stays well. I was expecting great things from this, being an IPA fan (it’s described as Citrus IPA). While there was citrus on the aroma, though (lemon pith, if I’m not mistaken), it also smelled a little, well, clinical. It had “natural orange flavouring”, which really came through in the taste. And for some reason the ingredients also included glucose syrup, which would have accounted for the syrupy sweetness in the background. Not awful, but a disappointment, and a bottle I couldn’t finish.
