Bottle @ home. Clear reddish color, medium sized white head. Aroma is malts, light metal. Taste malts, bitter. Don’t get anything else. Decent body and carbonation. Ok beer.

Smagt som cask ale. Meget maltet, sødlig lidt træagtigt, faktisk meget tør i smagen.

Light trade style country best ale, session brew, extremely quaffable. Red chestnut colour, a light taster of the headier County, still Ruddles but much lighter in aroma, taste and body. County without the silage, Range Rover to the Landrover Defender that is County, Barbour jacket without the muddy wellies. Rugby watching session brew.

Butelka 500 ml. Ladny miedziny kolor z biala-zolta srednia piana. Zapach fenomenalnie uderza po otwarciu butelki.cytrusy chmiele orzechy karmel. W smaku troche gorzej - piwo wydaje sie plytkie i wodniste. Jest fajna goryczka w koncowej fazie ale brakuje czegos... Piwo slodowo -gorzkie niezle jak na niskie ABV.

Bottle from Drinks Express, Low Fell, Gateshead. Amber coloured with toffee, marzipan and slight burnt toffee and currant flavours followed by a smooth bitter sweet finish. Pretty good considering the low ABV.

PlutonowyMan (513) - POLAND - OCT 25, 2015
Kolor bursztynowy, klarowny. Piana spora, drobno p?cherzykowa, koloru be?owo ?ó?tego, nie pozostaje zbyt d?ugo w szklance a mimo to przyzwoicie j? zdobi. Aromat: s?odowy, chmielowy z wyra?n? karmelow? nut?. Smak to ponownie karmel, toffee, chleb z rodzynkami, wyra?na s?odowo??. W Riddles Best jest wyczuwalna delikatna owocowa kwaskowato?? co troch? wzbogaca odczucia smakowe. Goryczka wyra?na, sucha, w kontrze do s?odyczy karmelowej. Wysycenie wysokie, pasuje. Alkohol, no có?, nie ma go zbyt wiele.

500ml bottle at home, given to me I might add! Poured light chestnut, nose is malts, taste is vanilla and malt. Drinkable but nothing special.
