Honey and nuts aroma. Light body. Sweet taste, but it could show more honey. Good, but nothing that special.

allmyvinyl (2802) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 7, 2013
500ml bottle at home. Pours clear dark yellow, little to no head. Aroma has that dirty sweetness honey has, plus a floral note. Quite thin, but an easy enough beer to quaff.

dogbomb (926) - ENGLAND - JUN 5, 2013
Bottle. Dark honey (apt!) with a very light haze - thick white head. There’s a lovely whiff of honey in the nose mixed in with citrus fruits and a light peach. In the mouth and it’s like someone has drizzled honey over a fruit cocktail and soaked it in bitter. Surprisingly yummy with a nice amount of carbonation to keep the flavour fizzing through the long palate.

wimpyjoe (3492) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 20, 2013
Copper coloured ale with an amber glow. Doesn’t hold its head. Sweet tasting with notes of honey in its aroma. Has a slight biscuit malt flavour.

laiti (5441) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 14, 2013
50 cl bottle @ HBF. Rated on 21.05.2010
Aroma has honey, English hops and hints of hay. Flavour has somewhat artifical honey notes, hay, English hops, caramel and toffee. 10 cl of this stuff was definitely enough. It seeems that Joseph Holt is not one of my favourite breweries.
