Cinque Five Grain Lager

Shepherd Neame is proud to introduce Cinque five grain premium lager.

The name is derived from the Norman-French word meaning five (pronounced ‘sink’) and pays tribute to our home town of Faversham, a member of the confederation of Cinque Ports. The Cinque Ports were established in the 12th century to maintain ships ready to protect the coast from foreign invaders.

Using five grains gives Cinque a complex flavour with a deep and satisfying mouth feel, while the use of aromatic French Strisselpalt hops lends a distinctive refreshing citrus note.

Tasting Notes

Five grains provide a clean malt base, which delivers a golden, refreshing, full-bodied lager.

This is overlaid with a delicate and refreshing citrus aroma from Strisselspalt hops, grown in the Alsace region of France.
