I expected this to be a run of the mill biter-but it wasn’t.It has a wonderful bitterness that is not overpowering.Pours with a big head.
and a slight trace of lemons. A lovely session bitter. BlackHaddock (7329) - 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. Mullo (102) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - SEP 22, 2004
Almost a full body and flavour is achieved throughout a 3.7%. An undertone of burnt wood flavour in the malt is pleasant. EFC1878 (315) - Manchester, Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - OCT 18, 2008
UPDATED: OCT 20, 2008 Bottle conditioned from Tesco. Dark amber with a nice white head. Good malty aroma with yeasty tang and hop undertones. Fruity taste with a good bitter finish. Light on the palate given its 4.5% ABV. One of the more successful efforts at producing a bottled bitter. mecafilo (219) - Perugia, ITALY - OCT 10, 2015
Bottle @ home. Pours with a clear orange colour, big rocky beautiful white head. Aroma is medium to heavy malty, with notes of bread; slightly hoppy, with the usual notes of English hops; a little faint, but it’s normal with this style; nevertheless clean. Taste is medium sweet, slightly bitter, slightly sour, liquid bread basically. Medium to heavy body, creamy texture, soft carbonation. Solid beer, doesn’t surprise much but it doesn’t disappoint, either.

Good, solid real ale and you can’t say fairer than that with a splendid taste masterful16 (8) - Wimbledon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 17, 2011 does not count
Yep nice beer; clean tidy with a nice and unique malty taste. Not rich and not for the connoiseur but not bad at all. Excalibur123 (493) - Soria, SPAIN - APR 30, 2017
Vierte bronce muy trasparente con pequeña corona de espuma de buena retención; aromas a cereal, ligero lúpulo, galleta y pan tostado; en boca entrada medio ligera con equilibrado amargor, largo pos gusto amargo y seco, cuerpo y carbónico medios; cerveza fácil de beber, refrescante, trago corto en un buen exponente de este estilo inglés de cerveza.
