BlackHaddock (6902) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2012
28th Oct 2009, I wrote this on BA: This could be the last, or one of the last reviews of a Wandsworth brewed Young’s beer. How fitting then, that the drink by date on the bottle is Saint George’s Day next year. Stranger even still, I met my wife on the 23rd April, way back in 1976, we are still together, and she cleans my pants, now that is true love! Anyway, back to the beer. Light amber with an off white foaming head which didn’t stay long. That might be because I reviewed it while eating Red Leicester cheese, sweet pickle and Hula Hoops. The aroma was sweetish, with a nutty wiff to it. Thie beer is a well balanced blend of hoppyness and a dry thirstquenching bitter flavour, to produce a fine English Bitter. I just hope it doesn’t change to much once it is brewed in Bedford.

Yep nice beer; clean tidy with a nice and unique malty taste. Not rich and not for the connoiseur but not bad at all.

Koelschtrinker (19101) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 5, 2011
Getreidig-malziger Antrunk, etwas wässrig. Âb dem Mittelteil unauffällig, minimal hopfig, etas herb, getreidig, aber nichts sticht wirklich hervor. Die Hopfigkeit wird zum Abgang stärker, dort aber wird das Bier wässrig. Ausdruckslos. Test vom 30.11.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 7,8,9,7,10,7

heavy (2808) - Split, CROATIA - DEC 10, 2010
03/10 0.5 l bottle from Vrutak store in Zagreb. It poured golden body with big loose head. Its aroma was strange, dusty, sharp and dry. Slightly bitterish flavor and very little fruity. Weak cardboard note is present. Thinner in body, watery, with pertaining finish, where only some bitterness shows up. Not so bad but just boring.

Marko (5349) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 4, 2010
0.5l bottle from Vrutak, Zagreb that heavy got and shared with me. Poured a deep hazy golden body with a thick white head. Dusty, slightly peachy nose. More of the same dusty peachy maltiness in the taste, light bitterness and herbal notes. Drinkable and fruity, watery but not bad.

floydian1 (1423) - FNQ, Australia, - AUG 21, 2010
Bottle. Dark amber hazy beer with a small white head that provides good lacing. Nose and taste is caramel malts and oranges with a medium citrus/floral hop bitterness to the finish. Nice smooth texture with a lightish body and low creamy carbonation. Eminently sessionable.

Svesse (8284) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - DEC 12, 2009
(Bottle, Huxleys, Heathrow Airport, London, 29 Nov 2009) Amber colour with frothy, beige head. Malty, fruity nose with orange and grainy malt. Malty, fruity taste with notes of orange, apricots and dusty hops in the finish. Below medium body, mainly dry. Well balanced and tasty, but lacking the complexity and earthy bitterness of the cask version.

Good, solid real ale and you can’t say fairer than that with a splendid taste
