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.

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.

UPDATED: SEP 24, 2004 Bottled.
Amber colour. Hoppy nose, with tones of sweat. Fully flavoured, richly hoppy making it a bit salty. Notes of citrus. Chewy. Finishes salty.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Mild aroma, spicy, malty, with distinct ginger aroma. Very carbonated and jumpy on the tongue, with an even balance of hop bitterness and roasted malts. There is some sweetness hidden behind the hop bitter, and almost has a syrup-like sourness.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A bitter and dry beer. It is an example of a classic English ale. It is not my favourite style, but this beer is one of the better examples.

Overpowering bitter dryness crushes wild honey and shy malt...Silky pollenated flowers sprinkled with watery chemicals...A cask feel is threatened by bubble-riding, simple megahops...

A long lasting soft head in a very hoppy ale with balanced sweetness and a deep long lasting aroma. Lots of flavors here, lingering in my mouth, making me satisfied and happy.
