500 ml. bottle, golden orange colour with a white head that fades soon, but leaves a good lace. Smell of hops and citrus, mineral, limestone. Sme rough edges in the (buttery) palate but it feels very good and refreshing. Taste of citrus, hops and minerals. Good one.

Young's number one seller is as classically made as you'll ever experience, atleast where it concerns Bitters.

It evocatively tastes and feels fresh and mineraly, claiming drinkability and balance from the very beginning; Yet, it almost feels like this character can be easily overlooked if one is to - for one reason or another - dispense insufficient attention to it. This grants this beer immense versatility, as it does not challenge for constant pontification but rather leaves the burden of choice to the drinker, to make this brew as complex as he / she desires.

If you're so inclined you'll delight in the balance of the honey sickle and toffee aromatics and the traditional buttery and sulphury back notes; Or at the very elegant and bittersweet, flinty finish.

This is just one of the beers that is perfect to have at the pub with the mates as it doesn't ask for too much attention and slakes the thirst just fine without boring the palate or mind.
