Decent bitter on cask at the Healey full of malty yeast with bitter coming through at the end great session beer Martin243 (1209) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2014
500ml bottle served cool at home. Hazy brown with a dissipating white head. Biscuit and raisin aromas. Fruity Garibaldi biscuit flavour, a bit of spice, but ultimately dull. johndoughty (5504) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 16, 2014
Bottle. Bronze with a clear appearance. Some maltiness and well bottled. As it says on the bottle a good session beer. It does what it says. DruncanVeasey (8260) - Nr NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 30, 2013
Aroma of interest: powdered fenugreek, Sugar Puff. Skimmed, burnished bronze. Opens with thistle-like intrigue, closes with soap. Pecan and caramel along the way. Fine balance and drinkability. More flavour than should be expected from a bitter labelled best. Pleasant creamy mouthfeel. Good sappy hop. Bottle from Adderscum Co-op. Hanoi (963) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - JUL 4, 2013
Bottle: Nose is yeasty with tangy lime biscuits and malt notes. Taste is malt, cereal, leading to a well balanced hop finish with some citrus to lift the caramel. A very good session beer.

Bottle. Light amber, hazy, small to average and fully diminishing head. Moderate, malty and lightly sweetish aroma, light caramel and light fruitiness, light grassy hoppyness. Body is light to medium, malty and lightly sweetish flavor, light caramel - light toffee and light fruitiness, light grassy hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and dryish, light caramel and light fruitiness with faint roasted malt, some grassy hoppyness. Nice dryish 3,8 bitter with decent hopyness.

Slightly hazy copper-amber colour with the remnants of what was a white head sitting thinly across half of the top of the beer. Evident carbonation. Aromas of tamarind, sweet toffeeish malt, herbal bracken, and ANZAC biscuits. Full mouthfeel and then a harmonic mixture of sweet maltiness and good puckering bitterness. Excellent flavour for a beer of session bitter strength and good length. Thoroughly enjoyable and would be ideal for a session. Well done chaps. chriso (7583) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 13, 2011
500ml bottle at home on 19 June 2011, best before December 2011. Amber colour. Slightly toffeeish malt aroma. Regular UK bitter flavours on the palate - earthy malt and tangy hops. Respectable enough but I’m not generally convinced that these low ABV standard bitters are ever at their best in bottle - I may want to down a few on draught in a session at a pub but at home I’m generally looking for something more suited to savouring than quaffing. Flagged for re-rate from cask some time.
