Charles Wells and Young’s merged in 2006. Young’s brand acquired solely by Charles Wells in 2011.
Brewed using the highest quality barley grown on UK assured farms. Golden in colour with a light, dry palate & a fresh, fruity aroma. Perfect with bangers & mash or roast beef.
Matured live in the bottle for a fresher taste. Can be enjoyed cloudy, but ideally pour slowly leaving the last few drops in the bottle with the yeast. For best results store upright & serve at 10-12°C.

LED40 (121) - Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - JAN 2, 2015
Bottle from Asda. Pours dark amber with a frothy white head and cloudy appearance. The taste is mild with balanced hops, grapefruit, orange and apricot flavors most noticeable. The body is medium and carbonation is again medium with a rich velvety mouth feel which is probably the more enjoyable aspect of the beer . Overall tasty and worth a try but nothing too special going for it to separate it from the crowd. This is marketed as a "bitter" but has all the characteristics of a pale ale.

Barwa: pomarańczowa, lekko zamglona. PIana lekko zabarwiona, kremowa, średnia do obfitej i umiarkowanie trwała. Aromat: wyraźna słdowość (biszkopty, tosty i karmel) i słodycz wsparta ziołowym i herbacianym chmielem oraz estrami (jabłko, gruszka, śliwki). Smak: chlebowy posmak słody kontra ziołowy chmiel, z lekkim wskazaniem na ten drugi. Sałość dosyć słodka, z chmielową kontrą oraz akcentem suszonych owoców i sherry. Goryczka i odczucie w ustach: umiarkowana do wysokiej goryczka, raczej delikatna, ale z długim finiszem. O dziwo krągła pełnia, umiarowane wysycenie i nieco szostki posmak na finiszu. Ogólnie poprawne stylowo piwo, które jednak niczego nie urywa. Kupiłem je tylko dlatego, aby dodać do statystyk kolejny styl.

Tastes more ale than bitter. Beer has smooth slimy feel on the palate which I like.

MarkoNm (2938) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - DEC 13, 2014
Pours a clear amber color, topped with a rather small white head. Malty aroma, some grassy, fruity notes and hops. Fruity start, bittery towards the finish. Mild and drinkable.

Grima (2506) - Merzkirchen, RLP, GERMANY - NOV 21, 2014
Bottle from Auchan Market, Luxembourg City!
Pours strong yellow-orange with fine head. Smell has spicy malts, hay and flowery hops. Starts hoppy, flowery, herbal, with crispy and spicy malt notes. Middle part has spicy malts and herbal hops. Goes into a hoppy-flowery finish with some slight sweet malt notes.

slawek (253) - Kraków, POLAND - AUG 31, 2014
Murky (my fault), amber, big head. Aroma: Yeasts,flowers, herbs, alcohol (?!), old socks (old hops) Taste: Low - medium sweetness followed by medium bitterness. Flavor of bread, caramel with herbal bitterness. Nice, smooth mouthfeel. Some defects, nothing special.

A very full white head. A taste of malt and hops with a slight floral tinge. Very enjoyable and full, would buy this one again.

McTapps (6976) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - AUG 22, 2014
Bottle from Tesco in Eastbourne. Pours out in a deep amber colour with low head and medium body. Aroma of bitter hops, torf and barley. Taste of bitter hops as well, mild barley, light bread, green nuts, straw and light herbs. Well-balanced bitterness. Not a bad beer.

MichaelAwesome (6545) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - AUG 22, 2014
Bottle shared with McTapps. Nose of hops, some leaves, a bit of bread and a bit acid. Easily drinkable with a sweetish touch of caramel. Crispy, but mild finish. Not bad.

Toomio (604) - Joensuu, FINLAND - JUL 28, 2014
Ei minkään tekijäks. Vettä on, humalaa on, mutta mallasta uupuu. Korttipelin seassakin ankea.
