Small off-white head and amber-red colour. Yeasty and hoppy(citrus, grass) aroma with a little fruit. Smooth, medium body. Taste; malty background with a yeasty and hoppy bite. Needs more balance.

Held up to the light, appears a nice clear amber. Small head fully diminishes leaving no notable lacings. Nice maltiness, and I smell a bit of coffee, too. Mildly bitter start, finishes a bit dry. Nice brew overall.

vivid orange copper colour when poured with nice head although quickly dissapates. the smell is of more of a bitter but with a few surprises. taste is sweet and slightly hopped, nice bitterness which carries through the drink into the aftertaste which lingers but is not off putting. nothing to rave about but nice especially on this hot summers day.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thin head which dies quickly but good carbonation. Color of a nice medium orange/amber. Aroma is a little weak with hops, a little brown sugar and slightly metalic. Flavor is quite nice and smooth. Medium bodied with malt and a touch of caramel. Finish is nice with a bitter finish of hops and leaves a nice smooth, creamy film in the mouth. One of the better Youngs products I have had.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Lake Tahoe clear, deep amber brew with a light orange tint. Small, frothy, enamel-colored head. Quickly diminishes and leaves no lacework.
The nose is malty and sweet with notes of English toffee, alcohol and yeast.
The flavor is laden with fuzzy fruit (peach and apricot), caramel and alcohol up front. Nice, well-bittered hop presence on the backside. Moderately astringent as well.
Full-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation.
Lengthy, moderately bitter and alcoholic finish.
I enjoyed this brew! Not what I would consider a world-class effort, but very good nonetheless!

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice looking beer with a lasting soft pillow-like head. Light aroma reminds me of an empty glass of Strong Belgian Ale, light yeast and bread. Alcohol is not overpowering. Smooth, warm palate with a nice aftertaste. Not a bad beer but not great and not worth $6 Cdn. Too mild to be exotic and too ambitious to be a session.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
pleasant malty aroma. Pours golden brown with a slight cloudiness and foamy head. Palate is thin, very slight malts. Alcohol is not well hidden, interferes with hops resulting in a confusing finish. A slightly above average beer but not worth searching out.
