Description

Pouring a deep, golden colour with wafts of sweet honey, Humdinger is a multi-award winning speciality ale. The enticing scent comes from the Mexican aroma honey which comes through in subtle undertones and balances impeccably with the traditional bitter notes and malt. Humdinger first came to life after winning a top brewing competition in 2004.

Full of character and flavour, the use of fine English malt and citrus whole hops lead to a well-rounded, lightly hopped and satisfyingly refreshing ale. It’s lightly carbonated, smooth and brewed at 4.1%, making it an ideal choice for a laid-back evening or day session.

A Humdinger indeed.

    A very nice beer, I’d rate this among my favourites.
    Slightly fruity with a very subtle honey finish.
    It certainly lives up to its name.

  2. Edward G Lunn (verified owner)

    Can’t fault this one. Didn’t like it as well as Manchester Brown Ale but good no doubt.

  3. Michael Shelmerdine (verified owner)

    A lovely beer, enough flavour to make it it interesting without becoming over powering. A good drink to have sat in the garden.

  4. benhardman (verified owner)

    A fantastic easy drinking beer perfect for at home or in the garden. The honey is very subtle but works really well with the bitterness

  5. jojo564 (verified owner)

    Beautiful beer, refreshing and drinkable. Well rounded taste. A favourite.

    First time we have ordered this, it was recommended by our son, Delivery was good, well packaged, would definitely buy from Holts again. The beer is a good colour and full of flavour, goes well with all food, beef stew, cheese and onion sandwiches, and of course a good curry Well done Holts, keep safe and well all

    Refreshingly crisp beer – easy to drink, a must for the fridge door.

    Easy to order, very prompt delivery and great beer. Got the beer before I got the email telling me my order had been dispatched!

    Honey with a slight bitterness, what is there not to like?

  11. Mon cher colonel (verified owner)

    Consistently good beer, really well balanced. At £12.50 a case as part of the special offer, it’s was a no brainer.

  12. David Alan Lockett (verified owner)

    Great ale, great delivery service to the isle of man, slurp

  13. John Sharpley (verified owner)

    Probably my favourite beer, a subtle flavour and so easily drinkable. Always to a high standard and a great deal with free delivery on promotion. Arrived much quicker than expected.
