I spent several years drinking in Dirty Dick’s pub in Bishopsgate, in the heart of the City of London in the early 90’s, and until I read the label on the back of the bottle I hadn’t associated this beer with the pub – now I know.
Nice bottle with the raised glass seal near the neck. I like the corporate branding of Young’s beers, they are distinguished.
Light amber pour with a small head. Disapates soon with some limited lacing. Some citrus (possibly) orange in the nose. Very mild hops and not much malt.
This is a low impact beer, and I suspect that for that reason it may not be especially popular in the USA. On the other hand I bet it scores highly in the UK. Because of the mild categorization this has huge potential as a session beer.
Relatively thin in the mouth (on purpose) with a mildly bitter and dryish finish. Slightly metallic but not in an unpleasant way, that just seems to add to the cleanliness of the beer as a whole.
Not Young’s best effort, but a solid beer.
