Bottled, Pasteurised. Amber beer with white head. Sweeter than the cask with less hop and bitterness. Malty, biscuity with a dry finish.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear amber colour with small off white head. Malty nose with a slight sweetness along with a hoppy bitterness. Flavor is initially malty with a sour touch, then becomes more bitter into a fairly long finish.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Smells like an old shoe, amber color, low lathery head. Stale hops arriving quickly after a thin, weak malt body departs. Pretty normal British ale...actually below average when you get down to it.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: FEB 1, 2006 I do not know why English like these kind of beers, no bubbles no flavor but a sawer flavor at the back of the tongue, it is like a tea with a beer taste. But this was not that bad.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle - 500ml. Nice hazy amber body topped with a thin white foamy head. Good hoppy aroma with herbal and woody notes. Its hoppy taste (Fuggle) is well balanced but could be stronger. Very refreshing Bitter.

UPDATED: FEB 24, 2005
Bottled. Filtered and pasteurised. 3.7%
Feb, 2002: Bottled beers, while not quite reaching the heights of a well kept cask ale, have a consistency which is reassuring. This bottled Young’s is a decent casual beer with a fuller flavour than the 3.7% alcohol content would suggest. [2.8]

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pasteurised bottle from Morrison’s. Definitely better on draught. Good hop aroma, little bit too carbonated for my taste. You can taste the hops in the finish, but not like the explosion with a good fresh draught pint of it.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Almost a full body and flavour is achieved throughout a 3.7%. An undertone of burnt wood flavour in the malt is pleasant.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Weak floral aroma with some metallic hint. Copper colored with no head. Flavor has obviously more of a bitter than aroma. Somehow bland palate and weak taste of malts. Hops come up nicely bitter, although this beer could have better balance with fuller body and more malts. Hopping leaves nice and lasting dry affect in mouth.
