Britain’s oldest brewer Shepherd Neame has just announced the latest addition to its range of 5 litre mini kegs – New Dawn Citrus IPA.

New Dawn Citrus IPA was created last May for Cask Club, Shepherd Neame’s contemporary cask ale initiative which saw a new beer released each month.

Brewed with Mandarina hops sourced from the Hallertau region of Germany, New Dawn also has dried sweet orange zest added during the brewing process. It is a straw-coloured beer with a mellow smooth bitterness, hints of orange and a refreshing citrus hit courtesy of the Mandarina hops and orange zest. It offers a sweet, slightly drying palate, and is ideally served lightly chilled.

Due to popular demand, it was decided to make the beer part of Shepherd Neame’s permanent range, and 500ml bottles (5% ABV) were launched in May this year. This has now been followed by 5 litre mini kegs, available from Shepherd Neame’s online shop and brewery shop in Faversham.

Other mini kegs currently available include Spitfire Amber Ale, Spitfire Lager, Whitstable Bay Pale Ale, Bear Island East Coast Pale Ale and Bear Island Triple Hopped Lager.
