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 isnt. Ordinary and only to be drunk if you are really desperate.Lets hope that it sinks without trace.

imdownthepub (13872) - 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 hadnt rated it. Carbonated cardboard flavours on pouring with a boiled grain background. A touch sweet, pear drop, vegetable. I got what I expected.

downender (8294) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 28, 2010
Bottle from Sainsburys. Amber with slight carbonation. Light cereal malt aroma overwhelmed by a strange mushroom soup edge. Flavour was similar: sweetish malts and wet cardboard. Another poor British bottled beer.

joe19612 (2762) - camberley, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2010
Bottle from Sainsburys. Pours a amber orange colour with a thin white head, the aroma is a bit skunky. The taste is watery with fruit flavours in the background, with a sweet dry finish.

scotty (1172) - SCOTLAND - FEB 23, 2010
Bottle, guest beer at my local Morrisons. This was much better than Id expected, good malty palate with enough hops in there to keep me interested, a good session brew. Nice!

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 18, 2010
Bottle 50 cl. Pours a clear amber with an off-white head. A little nuts in the nose and perhaps a whiff of floral British hops. Light in body, caramel and nuts and a metallic touch. Very subdued bitterness. But a pleasant little drinker. 180110
