Delicious youngs ale, full of hoppy malts, beautifully created for a delightful all round taste, recommended by the aleman ;)

DIBBLE (102) - Worthing, West Sussex, ENGLAND - APR 9, 2015
Bottle conditioned. Yeasty, hay aroma. Clear golden beer with a lacey white head that fizzles fast to a thin film. Taste is full but light in tone, hay, delicate crisp apple, with a bright lively mouth feel. Slightly dry finish. Refreshing and moreish.

UPDATED: APR 25, 2009 Golly gumdrops! My first sip of this beer, I have to say, was a disappointment. But by the end I wanted more. A ’cracking’ brew to ’crack’ open, in the bizarre language of beer ’bloggers’. I doubt Lady Crabapple would like this one, but I thought it was a marvellous beer, sharp and light.

Dark gold. A little yeast in the aroma with the old fashioned malt. A pleasant retro touch. Some citrus, some malt, followed by some medium hops. Probably because it was a lovely, golden, warm evening here in the Shire, I particularly relished this beer.

Docela dobré ale, světlá barva, sametová chuť. Pěna slabší. Lahváč z pivoňky.

MichaelAwesome (5920) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - DEC 19, 2013
Bottle shared with McTapps. Citeus and some light hops in the dominance. Easy to drink, maybe a bit thin but with a nice, crispy finish.

Jamedra (708) - Hostivice, CZECH REPUBLIC - JUN 11, 2014
Láhev 500 ml. Aroma je sladové s kvasnicovým nádechem. Pěna je jasně bílá, hrubší konzistence vysoká a mizící. Barva samotného piva je zlatá a lehce kalná. Chuť je sladová s jemným nádechem citrusů, finiš je středně hořký a držící. V ústech pivo působí plně, má velmi silný říz a je dobře pitelné. Jedná se o zajímavý ale, který bych si dokázal představit jako hospodské pitivo.
