no better beer for any occasion. Full body with a sweet caramel arouma. Draws a nice head off a tap and goes down smooth. My personal favorite for a real pint of beer for a real improtant occassion.

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

Dry, medium palate with soft carbonation. Small, off-white, short lasting head. Light to medium orange-red color. Heavy malty, wort aroma - very pleasant. Had some other aromas I couldn’t quite ID. Light sweet/bitter start to finish. Really tasty.

Like most brews from Young’s, Ramrod is another great offering from the UK. Not as bitter as one would generally expect for this type of Ale, but it is very well rounded, has a nice blend of hops and malts that deliver a very pleasant experience.
Brew is characterized by a rich copper-reddish hue, complete with a very even, creamy complexion, mid-sized head that leaves consistent lacing along the glass. Aroma is very enjoyable but lends itself much closer to a mild ale than that of bitter. Taste too is quite mild and lacks the hoppy kick expected

Pale brown in color and very flavorful. Hoppy and fruity aroma. Nice white head when poured. Little malty but doesn't make it bitter. Very enjoyable.

Always a favorite of mine dating back to the early nineties, seems to be as redoubtable as ever.

A reasonable pale ale, nice dry hops almost like a whiff of the legendary jynnan tonnyx... Not too complicated, but satisfying for all that; a good brew to accompany one of the woodier Virginia flake pipe tobaccos (such as Esoterica Tobacciana’s Stonehaven.)
