Several years ago this great Younger's Style bitter ale from Rogue was available in my location and I loved it. I can't get it anymore. It wasn't as hoppy or yeasty as Rogue's Brutal Bitter, but darn near as good, plus it sold in 12 oz bottles, whereas the Brutal Bitter was in 24 oz bottles. Both are great bitter ales in the best British tradition... and brewed in the US to boot.

A- Clear light brown color with an orange tint and a medium off white head. Head fades quickly but leaves some nice lace on the glass.
S- Caramel malts and East Kent Golding hops. Spot on in the nose for an English bitter.
T- Taste is spot on too, nice notes from the hops and perfectly balanced out with biscuit malts. Finish is dry and crisp with a final slight bitter note.
M- Light in body and decent carbonation. Very clean and crisp an easy drinker.
O- Outstanding take on the style, the 4.8% ABV is well hidden and this would be a great session beer for an evening out with friends. There is a nice story that goes along with the name of this beer too.
