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 (265) - 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.

Bottles in a ’beers of Britain’ pack I got for my birthday. Generic but enjoyable enough bitter, well balanced earthy hop with light malt. Slightly watery palate.

shoestring (331) - larkhall, SCOTLAND - OCT 20, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 21, 2014 Nice cheap bitter from asda. Toffee . Burnt caramel and bitter end. Nice thirst quencher and could do me a session ok at one quid a bottle. Nutty and biscuits also in there. As a few people have said, not offensive in any way, and competes favourably with the big boys (for what it is).
