Youngs’ Special London Ale (ENG)

OK, I’m going to keep this short and sweet. I took this photo on 10th June. It was the day before I visited Brisbane with a bunch of friends and rivals, fellow Poms and Aussies to see the first test against the Wallabies. Was this bottle of beer a good omen? With Ben Youngs set to start for the a very special England XV, that I predicted 3-0 win for the visiting team.

Low and behold, 3 weeks later I was proved right! However, my clairvoyant career was short-lived as I failed to predict the England soccer team’s exit from  Euro16  courtesy of the football powerhouse that is Iceland, and the UK’s exit from the EU, courtesy  of a bunch of idiots in the motherland.

Nonetheless, I’m a rugby man and that’s the result that counts.

Something special from England……

 

How about the beer I hear you ask? Brewed by Charles Wells, Young’ Special London Ale s a fine example of an English ale, nutty with hints of caramelised marmalade and a controlled bitte hoppy finish; smooth and satisfying. They say revenge is a dish best tasted cold, but this beer it’s best drunk at room temperature, to bring the flavour out. World class. Swing Low.

For a well-travelled Special Ale and some fine Internationals, here’s the Specials with International Jet Set …………..
