The brewery flagship BHB is a fine session beer, the taste of which is maintained from start to finish. It is a beautifully crafted straw coloured bitter with a Czech heritage.

DruncanVeasey (7191) - NUNEATON, Top 18, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2009
Cask, 2nd Hinckley Beer Festival. Deep gold, persisting white slick. Juicy dank lemon, lime and Fairy Liquid on mouldering dishcloth aroma. Fresh-squeezed hop zest and loveliness, like JHB but less soapy and insipid. Lime, orange and lychee on Jammy Dodgers; completely clean,flavour-packed and lovely. Nothing Czech about it. Beer of The Festival.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 27, 2008
UPDATED: NOV 20, 2009 Cask, gravity, at Wellington Arms Winter Festival of Ale. Gold. Faint malty aroma. Sour taste with lots of grainy malt and a decent mid bitter finish. This was all right. 20.11.09: Cask at same location. Malty aroma develops citrus. Cardboard malt or muesli taste, perhaps with a hint of apple peel. Rated: 6,3,5,4,12: 3.0

imdownthepub (10297) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 4, 2008
Cask conditioned at The Turf Tavern, Oxford. Gold to amber with white head. Quite a watery thin bitter, light with a slight salty note. Some citric hop but all very understaed. Malt in the close, but pretty unremarkable.

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 2, 2008
Cask in Blackfriars. Aroma is slightly sulphurus, sweet pale malts and some citrus notes. Taste is similar, sulphur blends well with the sweet malts making it pritty tasty.
