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.

Buen ejemplo de bitter inglesa con algo de diacetilo que le va bien. Buen aspecto, amargor medio, refrescante...

jamaty (1731) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 7, 2015
Dorada - ámbar. Espuma duradera. Escaso aroma, indefinido. En boca tiene una textura agradable y carbonatación que se hace notar, para realzar un sabor realmente bien equilibrado. Dulce al principio, con tono frutal, algo cítrico para acabar con un final seco y un amargor agradable a la vez que frutal. Bastante rica y muy bebible. Ale notable.

0.5 l bottle from local supermarket. Golden colour, almost no head as expected. Taste has some dark tasting malts with bitter hops. However, the taste is not that impressive. Typical to bitters. I tried to cool it not too much, but still I found this a bit uninteresting.

veceo (1076) - CROATIA - MAY 10, 2015
Hazy deep amber color, big white head that quickly disappeared. Some lacing. Taste and aroma of flowers, grapefruit, malt and orange. Light to medium body, average to high carbonation. Sweet, light bitter finish. OK.

Kohtuullisesti vaahtoava bitter briteistä. Tuoksu on todella kevyt, hieman mallasta ja viljaa. Suutuntuma mukavan raikas ja melko pehmeä, parasta tässä oluessa. Maku on myös aika mitäänsanomaton, jonkin verran maltaisuutta ja pähkinäisiä makuja. Jälkimaku menettelee, miellyttävän kuiva ja tasapainoisen katkeroinen. Mukavan raikas ja tasapainoinen perus bitter, tähän on hyvä verrata tyylin muita edustajia.
