Young’s Special London Ale is an award-winning bottle-conditioned beer. It is an unpasteurised, living beer, matured in the bottle for a fuller, more complex, multi-dimensional, fresher taste. Without artificial carbonation, the only fizz is the natural effervescence created by fermentation.
It has been described as a “truly great example of a bottle-conditioned ale” by beer writer Jeff Evans and Oz Clarke describe the flavour of Special London Ale, "...like making love in a hop garden. "
It is a 100% malt brew combining Maris Otter and Crystal malt with Fuggle and Golding hops. Golding and Target hops are added after fermentation, which creates an exciting fresh and hoppy bouquet. Fresh yeast and wort are added at bottling to continue the maturation as a ‘live’, bottle-conditioned ale. Show Less
