Joseph Holt 1849

75A smooth and full-flavoured, predominantly malty bitter with excellent balance.

Joseph Holt Fifth Sense

Joseph Holt Fifth Sense
73A powerful beer giving the impression of being just a bit too strong for its flavours to be fully appreciated.

Joseph Holt Humdinger

Joseph Holt Humdinger
73A quaffing beer that, thankfully, is not too much in thrall to its honey content.

Joseph Holt Manchester

75Full flavoured for the strength, but perhaps a touch too astringent in the finish. A Lowry scene features on the label.

Joseph Holt Manchester Brown Ale

Joseph Holt Manchester Brown Ale
70Disappointing: the dryness and lack of body detract from the malt and hop flavours, and it all tastes rather tired. I didn't enjoy it as much as the last time I drank it, just over a year ago.

Joseph Holt Maplemoon

75A well-balanced, tasty, dark golden ale with an enjoyable citrus prominence.

Joseph Holt Pioneer

75Gloriously hoppy in the Holt style, this bottle-conditioned beer features Pioneer hops.

Joseph Holt Thunder Holt

Joseph Holt Thunder Holt
75A tasty, well balanced strong ale described on the label as a ‘storm in a bottle'.

Joseph Holt Touchwood

75An unusual but well-judged beer with intriguing but not overbearing flavours.
