A limited edition cask ale which proved a huge hit with drinkers when it was launched by Shepherd Neame back in 2019 is now returning for summer 2022.

Full-flavoured and smooth, Summer Storm (4.5% ABV) is a modern IPA boasting tropical and citrus fruit notes courtesy of a combination of English Target hops and Amarillo, Centennial and Citra from the US.

Shepherd Neame’s Director of Brewing Mike Unsworth said: “We launched Summer Storm in August 2019 as part of our Cask Club initiative, and it was one of our most popular releases, so we decided to bring it back again this summer.

“It’s a New World-style sessionable IPA bursting with tropical and citrus fruits combined with a mellow bitterness and slightly spicy backbone. The flavour and aroma hops give a slight hop haze to this light amber beer, which really delivers on taste.”

Aimed at attracting a contemporary new audience to cask ale, Shepherd Neame’s Cask Club initiative sees new limited edition cask ales introduced throughout the year in participating pubs, celebrating modern styles and flavours, with exciting international collaborations and classic seasonal favourites.

Summer Storm is available now at selected Shepherd Neame pubs across Kent, London and the South East.
