Pale in colour, fully balanced with a malty flavour and distinctive hop character, makes for an easy drinking session beer.

Bottled (Beers Of Europe). Amber colour, medium white head. Aroma is fruits, mild vegetables, some slight toasted notes as well as earth. Flavour is being quite similar. Rather watery and thin, though the elements are there.

AndrewC (349) - Canterbury, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 11, 2011
Very pale brown. Nice clean crisp bitter with a biscuity malt and and well balanced slightly lemon-meringue short lived hop. I was really surprised quite how much I enjoyed it.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - OCT 31, 2010
Bottled. A copper to gold coloured beer with an off-white head. Some grassy hops throughout with some fruits. A reasonable bittersweet balance and really easy to quaff. Plays very safe but hey ho.

Bottle.Obviously an accountant thought there was a gap in the market for a bottled bland bitter. The marketing person decided to call it Best which it isnít. Ordinary and only to be drunk if you are really desperate.Lets hope that it sinks without trace.

imdownthepub (12161) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2010
Bottled, 500ml from Sainsburys, Banbury. Amber with white head, carbonated. Took a flier on buying this as I thought I hadnít rated it. Carbonated cardboard flavours on pouring with a boiled grain background. A touch sweet, pear drop, vegetable. I got what I expected.
