This beer is well known for its typical golden colour, its slightly hazy appearance and its fine head is especially characterised by its aroma which results from an agreeable combination of fresh hops and yeast. The beer's flavour, as sensed in the mouth, comes from the smell of hops: above all it is the fruity notes of muscat and raisins that give this beer a particularly attractive aroma. The aroma complements the touch of bitterness. There is no acidity, but an after-bitterness which melts in the mouth. This top fermented Trappist beer, refermented in the bottle, is not pasteurised.

First brewed in 1998 to celebrate Shepherd Neame's tercentenary, this copper-bronze, bottle conditioned beauty is an intense yet uniquely intricate offering thrice-hopped during the brewing process. This adds rich resinous notes and spikes of citrus to a moreish strong ale already rife with notes of liquorice, Masala wine, caramel and spicy orange. A frisson of dark fruit freshens the finish. Serve with smoked cheese. Thrice-hopped and bottle conditioned, 1698 is the connoisseur's choice, a beer to be savoured. Originally brewed to celebrate the tercentenary of Britain's oldest brewer, 1698 is a characteristically hoppy Kentish ale, and has Protected Geographical Indication, the same unique regional protection afforded to Champagne and Parma Ham. The ale matures naturally in the bottle and can be enjoyed fresh or allowed to settle for a few months to mellow. The natural effervescence produced by bottle-conditioning - the interaction of yeast and brewing sugars - gives 1698 fine, champagne-like bubbles that further enhance the fragrance, flavour and overall drinking experience. A silver medal winner in the Taste of Britain Awards, 1698 has been included in the International Beer Challenge's World's Top 50 Beers and has won a Gold Award from the British Bottlers' Institute.
'The classic of American brewing tradition since 1896, Anchor Steam has a bronze colour with a thick creamy head. The palate is full and malty with a beautiful bitter hop aroma - a unique beer universally recognised as a world classic that traces back to the Gold Rush era. San Francisco's famous Anchor Steam, the classic of American brewing tradition since 1896, is virtually handmade, with an exceptional respect for the ancient art of brewing. The deep amber colour, thick creamy head, and rich flavour all testify to Anchor's traditional brewing methods. Anchor Steam is unique, for their brewing process has evolved over many decades and is like no other in the world. A San Francisco original since 1896 Anchor Steam derives its unusual name from the 19th century when 'steam' seems to have been a nickname for beer brewed on the West Coast of America under primitive conditions and without ice. The brewing methods of those days are a mystery and, although there are many theories, no one can say with certainty why the word 'steam' came to be associated with beer. For many decades Anchor alone has used this quaint name for its unique beer. In modern times, 'Steam' has become a trademark of Anchor Brewing.
