(Bottle) Pours a reddish-brown body with an average creamy yellowish-beige head. Aroma of nuts, caramel, and light fruitiness. Flavor of caramel malt and hops with a bitter finish. Maria (10212) - Thisted, DENMARK - APR 1, 2007
Copper with a nice red hue and a nice head. The aroma is malty and the flavour is nicely balanced with notes of fruit, malt, flower and a bit of nuts. It has a nice hoppy bitterness that develops further in the finish! Brewosk (137) - Illinois, USA - MAR 22, 2007

[201-20070204] 1pt0.9floz. Medium yeast in aroma. Dark amber body with a couple large slow bubbles and pours a big quick light tan head. Flavour is heavy on the barley malt and toasted caramel, almost burnt and a little smokey. Medium body, light raspy or gravelly mouthfeel. Good togetherness, very English.

I certainly didn’t think this beer was spectacular in any way. I was expecting a bit more bitter. As it warmed it became better. Fairly average.

Ehh, not a big fan of this beer. It has a little whang that I didn’t care for. Why drink this high calorie beer when it is only 4.15? Hell if I know. ford9719 (371) - Vilseck, GERMANY - FEB 22, 2007
Bottle. Poured a dark murky reddish color kinda of thck. Aroma of barley and roasted malt. Taste is smooth with a hint of chocolate finsh. shigadeyo (3739) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 19, 2007
Since the Young’s "Ram Brewery" has closed and many of the Young’s beers are now considered "retired", my friend Rob and I had a Young’s beer tasting on 2/08/2007 so that we could try all of the Young’s brews we could get our hands on before they’re gone...
Tasting Notes: Young’s Dirty Dick’s Ale pours a clear amber color with a frothy off-white/beige head. The carbonation is lively and vigorous like a thunderous rain storm. The aroma is malty and the flavor has toffee and toasted malt undertones to it with a mild level of bitterness. There is also some complimenting creamy/buttery notes in the flavor as well. The finish is dry and mellow. The mouth feel is smooth and creamy. Overall this is a solid example of a nice English bitter...

hmmm...nothing huge sticks out in my mind about this one and its been quite some time. had decent flavor but wasnt super lasting. OldMrCrow (2437) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 13, 2007
Pours a deep yellow-orange with a nice head. Strong fruity aroma of cherry, apple, and toffee is echoed in a sweet malty flavor, again very fruity, plenty of caramel up front, just a bit of Fuggles bitterness on the finish.
It’s a passable beer that defies easy style catagorization -- I’d call it an ESB --- but it’s just not one I’ll miss very badly.
