This is the second of the Great British Ales pack. Unlike the Fraoch, I have had this many times. Shepherd Neame is one of my favourite brewers and Spitfire is an excellent beer. It is so good, i could never do it justice. It is malty, hoppy, spicy and leaves a wonderful bitter aftertaste that leaves your pallette wondering where the hell the next mouthful is?
The beer is named after the excellent Spitfire plane from world war two. The bottle has a clever slogan at the bottom that says "The bottle of Britain" which is pretty amusing considering the orgin of the name.
