I admit to being sentimental about this beer, as it was one of those I used to drink thirty years ago because it seemed faintly exotic. Clear mid-amber into red, not much head. Sweet nutty malt, slight floral hops on the nose. Taste is soft, mild, and sweet. A decently clean finish and palate. A good session beer to not pay attention to.

Sweet caramel aroma. Copper brown appearance - clear with light carbonation. Mild bitterneess dominated by a slightly oversweet cloying taste. Not a winner for me.

An inoffensive bitter. Not much going on to excite the palate, but an enjoyable pint of beer. Malt, some hops and a pleasant mouthfeel.

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.

Kolor bursztynowy, klarowny. Piana spora, drobno p?cherzykowa, koloru be?owo ??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 c?, nie ma go zbyt wiele.
