Im going down the pub for some Neck Oil! ...Grandad would always holler as he left for his second home, the Pub. A hard workingman, at the end of a day he craved his Neck Oil. This is our homage to his favourite Session Best Bitter. Get it down your Neck!
The Neck Oil is now only available in cask and being served at fine real ale establishments.

As of mid 2013 the recipe for this beer has changed and, as such, there is a new entry.

Had this from a can I bought at Craft Beer Co Covent Garden a few months ago. Slight citrus aroma and a bitter taste.

Scopey (12707) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2013
Keg at 4.5% at Dukes. It pours orange-amber with a small white head. The nose is orange, tangerine, sherbet, earthy, hay and toast. The taste is crisp, floral, orange, grapefruit, minerals and grass with a dry, citric finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Smooth, tasty and rather drinkable.

Garrold (4346) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 19, 2013
Tap at Friends of Ham, Leeds. Hazy amber. Frothy, white head. How come all British brewed, low ABV beer isnt like this? Oh, I know. Because its got some kind of taste to it! I wish my local had beer like this on...

Pretty nice bitter, not much to say really. There are generally more exciting options on at Dukes. OK.

On cask at Dukes Brew & Que. Hazy amber. Caramel and mild citrus. Well-balanced, some sweetness. Quite nice.

johndoughty (4996) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 28, 2013
Bottle. Golden and slightly cloudy. Medium head with some sweetness that lingers. Quite pleasant and distinctive considering that some bitters tend to be quite bland.

zacgillbanks (4527) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - MAR 22, 2013
Bottle from Sourced Market, St. Pancras, London. Hazy dark amber coloured with strong malty and toffee flavours with fruitiness and bitter hops on the finish.

On gravity at the London Drinker beer festival 6/3/2013. Chestnut coloured, with solid sweetish cereal malts, some leafy hops, caramel and a decent, bitter finish. Good.

I read that this was not being bottled anymore (see above) so when Cotteridge Wines said they had a couple left in the chiller I thought Id grab one. Id had it before in Cherry Reds, pre RB days, with Bish. Beavertown have certainly upped their game recently but this is perfectly good for a Saturday afternoon. Crisp and bitter. Decent session beer with a great name and a sense of history.
