COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle; pasteurised. Also exported pasteurised in kegs.
Production moved from Youngs to Wells & Youngs in 2007. Recipe changed from dry hopping with Target to Goldings.
Ingredients: Maris Otter and Crystal malts; Fuggle and Golding hops. Dry hopped with Golding hops.
Named after the Dorset Horn ram that lived in Youngs brewery stables in Wandsworth, and on which the company’s trademark is based.
“A pale brown, fruity, vinous, hoppy beer packed full of flavour. Full-bodied with an excellent balance between malt and hops.”

Another good, very ’British’ beer. The name gets a kick from non-beer people.

A very pretty glass of beer. Reddish-brown in color. A nice malthops balance, but on the sweeter side. Nothing offensive here, nothing spectacular

Oakes (11786) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 3, 2001
Creamy head; slightly hazy; chewy, earthy nose. A fairly candyish, cloying sweetness really detracted from everything else that this beer was trying to accomplish.

A nice ale, struikes a balance between hops and malt. more potent than one would think. An enjoyable english strong ale.

Not bad, really light bodied, and has a real thin head.

Apple Juice aroma, it looked kind of apple juicy too. much more malt then expected with a slight hop bitterness. low in body as expected

I really liked this ale. I thought it was superbly balanced. Smooth. And just a great ’beer.’ I mean, sure it’s not a Russian Imperial Stout or a barley wine. But it’s great for defining that perfect middle of the road beer ’beer.’ If you know what I mean.

Quite ordinary. Head quickly diminishes into a basic British ale. Regardless, it is consistant and goes well with all kinds of food.

A decent Brit Ale, nothing super. Deep amber; fairly quick head; very sweet and malty initially with some mild English hop bitterness in the follow. Seems to thin out a bit as bottle finishes.
