Younger’s: Chocolate malt, some yeast character. Bit of dark sugar maybe, not sure. No fruit to speak of. Respectable bitterness, satisfying aftertaste. It was selling very well as it happens, a lot of people clearly remember it.

There are a lot of mysteries here. Why did S&N discontinue this in the first place? Why have Heineken started brewing it again (presumably at the Caledonian)? Having decided to brew it again, why didn’t they tell anyone? Not sure but it’s probably something to do with the sub-contracting of the sales and marketing of the S&N “heritage” brands (McEwan’s & Younger’s) to the secretive Jygsaw Brands outfit. Perhaps we are just part of a bit of market research to see if the stuff sells?
