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.

I expected this to be a run of the mill biter-but it wasn’t.It has a wonderful bitterness that is not overpowering.Pours with a big head. and a slight trace of lemons. A lovely session bitter.

BlackHaddock (3500) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2012
28th Oct 2009, I wrote this on BA: This could be the last, or one of the last reviews of a Wandsworth brewed Young’s beer. How fitting then, that the drink by date on the bottle is Saint George’s Day next year. Stranger even still, I met my wife on the 23rd April, way back in 1976, we are still together, and she cleans my pants, now that is true love! Anyway, back to the beer. Light amber with an off white foaming head which didn’t stay long. That might be because I reviewed it while eating Red Leicester cheese, sweet pickle and Hula Hoops. The aroma was sweetish, with a nutty wiff to it. Thie beer is a well balanced blend of hoppyness and a dry thirstquenching bitter flavour, to produce a fine English Bitter. I just hope it doesn’t change to much once it is brewed in Bedford.

Almost a full body and flavour is achieved throughout a 3.7%. An undertone of burnt wood flavour in the malt is pleasant.

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.

Yep nice beer; clean tidy with a nice and unique malty taste. Not rich and not for the connoiseur but not bad at all.

Smooth, light bitter. Overall its average, but English bitters are above average.

Embrouille (2823) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 19, 2008
Bottled 50cl. 4.5 ABV. The nose is of candied fruits and hops. Nice. Hoppy flavor with hints of candied fruits, wild strawberries, breakfast cereals and honey. Good bitterness. Nice lacework. Nicely balanced. Some licorice in the finish. I enjoyed this beer.

Swaroga (1271) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 8, 2012
50cl bottle. Filtered and golden with medium white head. Nose ; malts, dairy, grassy with a bit of lemon zest. Sip ; low to medium density with creamy body. Just a bit more carbonation then what I call traditionally ’low’. Really nice fluffy body. Full of air and still easy to drink. The taste is overall dry and malty with skunky, lemon zest bite until the end. Little bitter hops are there too. Overall it’s a good beer. Extra points for the great body.
