Charles Wells and Young’s merged in 2006. Young’s brand acquired solely by Charles Wells in 2011.
Brewed using the highest quality barley grown on UK assured farms. Golden in colour with a light, dry palate & a fresh, fruity aroma. Perfect with bangers & mash or roast beef.
Matured live in the bottle for a fresher taste. Can be enjoyed cloudy, but ideally pour slowly leaving the last few drops in the bottle with the yeast. For best results store upright & serve at 10-12°C.

janubio (467) - SPAIN - SEP 20, 2013
500 ml. bottle, golden orange colour with a white head that fades soon, but leaves a good lace. Smell of hops and citrus, mineral, limestone. Sme rough edges in the (buttery) palate but it feels very good and refreshing. Taste of citrus, hops and minerals. Good one.

CanCrusher (709) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - APR 15, 2013
Bottle 0,50L. Clear orange colour with (for the bitter) big white, long lasting head and lively visible carbonation. Aroma is the weakest point of this beer, but you can still get some malts and fruity hops on the nose. Moderate bitter taste - I would expect more bitterness. Medium to full body with oily texture.

Ferris (6232) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 6, 2013
Bottle - Malt forward but subtle with some grains. Clearish copper with a nice foamy head. Quick hit of bitterness and some fruit, spice and a nice mild bitter finish. A bit of a hop bite. A good bitter, that actually delivers on the bitterness. I would order again.

ciaranc (1039) - Dublin, IRELAND - FEB 4, 2013
Pours a slightly hazy yellow with a foamy white head which doesnt last. Blast of phenols on the nose, with some straw in the background, not great. Very watery body. Dry mouthfeel. Not much happening in the flavour, tastes like a pale lager. Some honey in there too. Finish is non-existent.
