From Top to Bottom

Worthington White Shield is an all time English Classic Beer. This IPA (India Pale Ale) has been delighting drinkers everywhere for many years and while the label has changed the beer has not and even the label now appears to be returning to something closer to its traditional design. I first got to know this beer in Cambridge where it was the favoured drink of my supervisor despite his passion for having long conversations with the college wine waiter about the college’s wines. Around this time I remember reading an article in one of the Sunday colour supplements about Percy Shaw the inventor of the reflective cats eye road stud that so characterises night driving in Britain; according to the article he lead a very modest life with two notable exceptions, his Rolls Royce and his regular delivery of a crate of White Shield! If you come across it give it a go, you wont be disappointed but pour it carefully, the beer continues to ferment after bottling and contains a sediment of yeast. Enjoy (but leave the Rolls in the garage)!
