COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Pasteurised.
Charles Wells and Young’s merged in 2006. Young’s brand acquired solely by Charles Wells in 2011.
Bursting with taste, Young’s Bitter is an easy to drink, refreshing ale with a fresh, fruity aroma that leaves a long, satisfying bitter finish. It is traditionally brewed to deliver a clean taste and is light and dry in flavour with a subtle taste of hops.
Youngs Bitter is brewed by methods unchanged for generations to modern standards using only the highest quality traditional ingredients.
100% malt brew: Maris Otter and crystal malt with Fuggle and Golding hops.

Muggus69 (1411) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - MAR 9, 2009
Date: 16/2/09 Beer info: Bottled in brown 500ml bottle 4.5% abv bb 31/7/09 Sampling Notes: Served lightly chilled in glass. Pours a picture perfect pint; creamy white foam atop a deep bronzed-gold body, weaving thick lace on the way down. Subdued nose, typically English affair with marmaladey citrus hops, hint of sweet nutty crystal malt, and bready yeast. Smooth texture, lean body and moderate creamy carbonation. Slight drying and decent bitterness. Unoffensive, if not a bit bland, body. Mild bready maltiness bolstered with a hint of toffee sweetness. Hop flavour seems restrained, slight spice and citrus. Drying finish, bit metallic, lingers a tiny bitter. Not a bad bitter, easy and quite fresh, but nothing to rant and rave about.

EFC1878 (315) - Manchester, Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - OCT 18, 2008
UPDATED: OCT 20, 2008 Bottle conditioned from Tesco. Dark amber with a nice white head. Good malty aroma with yeasty tang and hop undertones. Fruity taste with a good bitter finish. Light on the palate given its 4.5% ABV. One of the more successful efforts at producing a bottled bitter.
