1pt 0.9oz bottle from Bayville Package Store, Fenwick Island, DE...amber pour, white head...aroma of malts, hops, floral...taste is hops, citrus, grass, bit metallic...really good, but the aftertaste was like wet sponge...I think I got too much sediment off the bottom.

Excellent beer! This must rank as the best Youngs beer i’ve had (close with double choc stout!). Its strong without being overwhelming. To me, it’s perfectly balanced, and finished with delightful toffee flavours. It look so inviting, with its dark golden colour.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cellar temp. Metalic aroma. Clear and copper with a frothy white head. Slightly sweet and rather malty. Finish is very mild bitterness with a residual dry malt extract like effect. As average as average can be, but take this with a grain of salt: it is 5 months past it’s best before date. Must be a long ride to Kentucky.

aroma of malts and hops and banana’s. light brown almost amber color with a thin head. the flavor is great with a malt/hop combo that left me wanting more. palate was very smooth and left a slight bitter after thought. I must be careful with this one, could polish of a lot of these quick!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Olala! Extremly dry and bitter finish. Quite pale color. Hops dominate in this tasty pale ale. Could easily be mistaken as an IPA.

Aroma: Lovely hops with that malty note just there to beg the next whiff...
Appearance: Amber with a huge white head which lasts and lasts
Flavor: Just intriguing, starts with a malty sweetness to replaced with English Hop flavors
Palate: Very light on the tongue, almost dances along to a delightfuly sharp bite in the finish yummm
Overall: For me with this beer characterises the charm of old world style beers... time just makes the magic deeper and better... get a few.. taste them as the bottle ages...
