2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours amber with a small white head. Aroma of malt, caramel and light fruity hop notes. The flavour is the same and has a pronounced metallic kick in the flavour too. Not quite there overall and I wouldn’t go back for another one considering the high quality of other bitters available.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle conditioned at 4.5% abv. Clear gold, decent white head with some lacing. Medium body, prickly carbonation, mouthfeel, some malty sweetness and fruity hop flavours. Pleasant if unexciting bitter.

Solid beer really. Does what you’d expect and there is nothing wrong with a good quality bitter such as this from Young’s, you can’t really go wrong with it unless you are really foolish that is and drink 10 pints or so. I suppose all I can say is that it is not that exciting as beer goes.

Very light, but decent flavour for such a low ABV. You could drink this all day, but it would get a bit samey. Light fruity malt with a light hop finish

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Golden brown with an off white foam. Aromas are light weetabix malts with grapefruit. Quite dusty with some woody notes and hints of cardboard. Flavours are biscuit and weetabix malts with some nuttiness. Dry and hoppy with grapefruit bitterness on the finish. OK.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Beer info: Bottled in brown 500ml bottle 4.5% abv bb 31/7/09
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.
