The Shy Retirer Review

I don't know who is retiring or why they're shy about it, but if this is the beer that they'll be drinking in their retirement I would reconsider.

Shy by name and shy by nature, with a deftness of flavour that verges on the bland.

The Shy Retirer can and pour

Low ABV at just 2.8% which makes it very light and drinkable, but it lacks anything with regards to depth of flavour, or flavour at all to be honest.

The Shy Retirer: Taste Test

The aroma is quite delicate with grassy notes which are balanced with a touch of citrus, which is compounded at the pour which is a beautiful pale colour.

Plenty of fizz in this one give it a fine head, but the carbonation is more akin to a lager and made it hard to detect much flavour in the actual ale itself.

It's a little dry too, but it's very crisp and light which makes it a very refreshing ale to drink and very sessionable too.

The Shy Retirer: Can Notes

One name springs to mind when I think of this can design: Austin Powers.

The Shy Retirer can

Groovy 70s style font on the front with the beer name and a colour fade of pink to blue wrapped around the can give it a look that wouldn't look out of place with the funky spy himself.
