COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Pasteurised.
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.

KnutAlbert (6067) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 15, 2007
This has all the elements a fine bitter should have, but it is way too shy of making any statement. Everything is on the safe side, there are (were) far more interesting bottled beers from Young’s where they play with the ingredients and make something interesting.

Gethinbeer (2141) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - DEC 4, 2006
NIce, fresh aroma but with no distinct character. Golden colour with a frothy white head, looks high in carb. Clean crsip tatse. sweet and smooth as it goes down. Bitter finish, little watery also. Nice beer but nothing special.

berkshirejohn (4443) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 9, 2006
Bottle: clear gold with an off-white head, some carbonation; earthy aroma; gently bitter with a clean aftertaste. Everything an "ordinary" bitter should be.

mansquito (3338) - Nueva York, New York, USA - OCT 31, 2006
A bitter ale that is quite bitter, but still easy to pour down your throat (that is the purpose of bitter ale as far as I know). Nice color. hops are overcome by the bitterness. Probably would have enjoyed beer more if I had it in a better place, but the bar where they had it was not to my liking.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 25, 2006
Strong fruity esters are joined with caramel malts and earthy, floral hops in the nose. Clear and lightly hazy deep golden body is topped by a generous off white head that recedes to a lasting cover with nice lacing. Earthy and dry flavour has some residual caramel and plenty of fruity esters. Medium body with fizzy and somewhat short-lived carbonation. Tulip glass. Cellar temperature. Bottle (BB 15-Jan-07, Bièropholie, Aug-06).
