2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Morrisons 99p. Thin brown gold and virtually headless. Grainy nose with only a hint of fruity hops. Light palate, fairly well balanced if a little bland, poor finish. I have fond memories of this, so I’m a bit pissed off this is what its turned into, will try again...it’s only 99p.

UPDATED: JUL 3, 2005 (Bottle 50 cl) Orangey golden with a small, slightly creamy head. Surprisingly high in CO2. Some caramel- and toffee notes and some hops in the finish. Very light body. 180305

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Vinous aroma with biscuit and grapes. Some hopbitterness at first, immediately follwed by a biscuit-like sweetness and hints of caramel and licorice. Just a bit of bitterness in the aftertaste. Thin to medium bodied. Unexciting beer, lacks life and bite.

Not enough alcohol. Or anything else. All in all, this beer lacks uumph! It’s very nice and polite and rounded and bitter. But there isn’t enough of anything.

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.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
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]
