The Young’s Ones

youngs-bitterHere are a couple of bottle-conditioned beers from Wells & Young’s that are worth trying.

Young’s Bitter (4.5%).  The cask version of this beer is a very pleasant 3.7% session beer (see A bit of a pickle).  The bottled version – a bit stronger – is also very pleasant.  It has a slightly sweet smell and initial taste, and it takes a while for the bitterness to kick in.  It’s a light, uncomplicated beer.  The bottle notes claim it is perfect with bangers and mash or roast beef, but I drank it on its own.

Young’s Special London Ale (6.4%).  Although bottle-conditioned, and quite strong, it didn’t seem to have any sediment, and poured very clear.  It has a hoppy smell and a fruity flavour – and not as sweet as I expected it to be – quite bitter, in fact, which was s very nice surprise as I don’t go much on strong sweet beers.  The bottle notes claim it is “perfect with cured hams or smoked salmon”, but I found that it went well with some Lindt dark chocolate.
