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.

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.

labeerinthum (567) - Milano, ITALY - SEP 5, 2016
Bottiglia. Il gusto al naso ritrova orzo e alcol. L’intensità olfattiva è normale e la persistenza olfattiva è sufficiente. Il cappello di schiuma ha una buona tenuta e finisce con un pizzo sul bicchiere. La grandezza delle bollicine è media e la carbonazione è abbondante. La consistenza del liquido è limpida. La grandezza delle bollicine è media. La carbonazione è esuberante, persistente ed insistita. Il colore è ambrato. Il corpo è pieno. Il dolce è medio. L’amaro è deciso ma non così carico come il nome farebbe supporre. L’intensità gustativa è elevata e la persistenza gustativa è buona. Le sensazioni boccali finali sono luppolate. Il finale è amarognolo e pulito. L’aroma in bocca racconta impressioni di miele, frutta secca, luppolo e resina.

Bottle at Erwin's Ponton. Might have been decent, by now it's plain horrible. Not bitter, not tasty.

josanguapo (1152) - SPAIN - JUN 17, 2016
From Hipercor Sevilla Este. In Ikea’s english pint glass. At dinner, with chicken steaks + fideos soup + magnum almendrado. Very drinkble. Smooth, with a plesant and balanced english bitterness and fresh hops. However, its still a style that lacks some punch for me
