As the days get shorter, and nights get darker, it is the perfect time to enjoy Shepherd Neame’s Late Red Autumn Splendour Ale.

The crimson copper-coloured seasonal ale is a complex, full flavoured brew, forging the perfect balance between rich, dark malt flavours and a citrussy hop finish.

It blends pale ale malt and gently-kilned crystal malt with UK Cascade and Goldings hops. To enhance its taste and aroma, the brew is triple-hopped, with a late copper addition of Cascade and Goldings.

The brand has undergone a complete redesign to give it a more eye-catching, contemporary look. The red square pump clip is now illustrated with a traditional autumnal scene of a Kentish oast house by a field with harvested rolls of straw.
Late Red (ABV 4.5%) will be available from Monday, September 1 to Wednesday, December 31. It is also available in 500ml bottle (ABV 4.5%).
