3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUN 8, 2004 Bottled
Very welcoming hoppy aroma. Nice lacing starts almost yellow. Colour is copper almost amber. Flavour starts as lightly hoppy but finishes quite quickly. Gives weak but tasty hoppy aftertaste. Very drinkable. (7/4/6/3/13 3.3)
Hazy amber with creamy and steady white head. Sweet floral aroma. Watery, sweet malty, slightly herbal and grassy. Too thin. (5/3/5/2/10 2.5)

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: OCT 22, 2006 (Bottled) Hazy light amber color with a medium, cloudy head and nice lacing. Mild, but pleasant aroma of woody, flowery hops and honey. Mellow, woody-hoppy, dryish flavor with not much maltiness, and a quickly fading finish. Smooth and creamy, although quite carbonated, light to medium-bodied palate. A decently pleasant, yet very easily drinkable brew with a delightfully low ABV.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
the epitome of average english pint. pleasureable, if forgettable. all the youngs beers have a more astringent flavor, (assertive would be a more complimentary word) than their london counterparts, but are still nice drinking. the other youngs beers are more representative

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
One of the better lower-alcohol English bitters. Very pale golden. Thin head bud decent foamy lace. Hoppy aroma, slightly bready. Mild flavor but tasty--ever so slightly sweet with a nice hoppy finish.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pale bronze with rich, stable head. Intense flowery hop aroma. Sweet and bold, yet with watery mouthfeel. Feels like a strong ale with added water. The finish provides a small blast of flowery hop bitterness, but on the whole this is a disappointing effort froma usually good brewer.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Had in bottled form. Pours with no head in a light copper colour. Has a hoppy nose and is quite highly carbonated. Weak and unoffensive hoppy taste. Standard stuff.
