    A very acceptable strong bitter.
    Review by Chazon 16/01/2017
    It is a few years now since my last regular annual re-acquaintance with Bateman's XXXB in its native Lincolnshire. Since then the three times I've found it 'down south' the taste has been variable: 1 excellent moreish pint reminiscent of Gales HSB, and 2 totally unspectacular pints. Admittedly I don't rate many 'red' beers, but XXXB was one of my favourites. So I can't/won't comment on how good a clone this kit produces, but the result was a very acceptable strong bitter, equal or better than many commercially brewed ales.
    This was my first attempt at an extract recipe kit, and the extra 'fuss' involved (over something like a Young's American Ale kit) was well worth the effort.
    A fellow reviewer warns about not leaving leaving the fermented wort (ale) on the lees for too long. Well my ferment took only four days to get down to a SG of 1010, and being surprised by this and as a precaution I left it for another couple of days - no change in SG. I decided to rack it off the lees then and leave it for another two days whilst I visited my son, because I didn't have time to bottle it before going,
    A friend commented that it was the best home brewed bitter he had tried.

    The Best Smelling Boil Ever
    Review by ralphon 23/02/2016
    I have yet to test one against the real XXXB but that is mainly because its such a pleasure to drink that I can't bring myself to buy beer. Amazing head retention, fruity but bitter, making it sweet and yet dry, simple but pronounced hop profile,very well balanced flavour. This will impress your friends when you give them some it's just a shame it doesn't make a bigger batch.

    A Brilliant homebrew
    Review by Steveon 09/03/2013
    This is a wonderful beer that I have made several times now. It is so good I keep coming back for more.

    The taste is both malty and hoppy with a strong treacle aftertaste from the dark malt.

    Following the recipe exactly I acheived a 5.8% finnish with the Nottingham yeast.

    You have to keep your eye on this one. It takes up to 14 days to ferment out fully accordng to the instructions supplied, but on three occassions now I have found that the beer had gone off by 14 days and had to be thrown away. Use of a hydrometer to check the must is essential and bottling slightly early after 12 days fermentation is strongly recomended to avoid the strong musty taint that occurs when a must goes off.
