Roosters Yankee

£2.29
4.05
23

North Yorkshire-based Rooster’s Brewing Co. has been brewing exceptionally clean-tasting and hop forward pale ales for over 20 years and is one of our Sommelier’s favourite UK breweries. The easy-drinking Yankee™ is a classic pale ale that showcases the American Cascade hop.

Hoppy aromas of lemon, pine and florals are prominent on the nose. Similar flavour notes are accompanied by more fruit notes like pineapple and pears as well as biscuity malts and caramel sweetness. A viscous texture and medium body are finished off with a dry and subtly bitter finish. Excellent.

  1. Middling greatness Review by Dead Derek
    Rating

    As others have commented - not as good as their "Baby-Faced Assasin", and possibly disappointing for that reason. But: it's still Roosters, so it's still great. The packaging alone is worth your money. (Posted on 13/03/2017)

  2. Not bad... Review by Klaud

    ... but not a patch on their Baby Face Assassin. (Posted on 24/01/2017)

  3. Good, but not as good as others Review by James
    Rating

    A good ale, but prefer Roosters Baby Faced Assassin, which is a bit stronger (Posted on 23/01/2017)

  4. Solid offering Review by Wethers
    Rating

    The weakest of the Rooster offerings and probably my favourite. had it on tap in Leeds and it was even more delicious (Posted on 09/01/2017)

  5. Aroma more interesting than the flavour Review by Jo
    Rating

    Clear golden colour, some carbonation, very thin white head with little retention, spicy and hoppy grapefruit, lemon, rose and slightly malty aroma, quite thin crisp mouthfeel with little carbonation, hoppy, bitter lemon flavour, slightly bitter aftertaste, preferred it on cask.

    This is a nice solid american style IPA - not anything to really write home about but nice classic flavour (Posted on 01/09/2016)

  7. Very nice Review by Ed

    This is a classic American style pale ale - fruity and tasty! Can't really go wrong with this one. (Posted on 30/08/2016)

  8. (Doodle) dandy Review by Llamaman

    A nice crisp pale ale with a pleasant bitter finish. Moderate ABV makes this an excellent choice for a warm sunny afternoon... (Posted on 16/07/2016)

  10. Nearly forgot to drink it - it smells so amazing! Review by Beer In The Bay
    Rating

    Wow, what an aroma! Floral, hoppy, zesty - such a wonderful way to start any beer. This was my first experience (since they came back into fashion) of enjoying a craft beer from a can, will buy more of these for certain. (Posted on 27/04/2016)

  11. Perfect for summer Review by JohnH
    Rating

    Pours very fizzy with a loose foamy head that quickly disappears. Light and refreshing, like a toned down but still flavourful IPA. Citrus and some floral notes but not too strong. Could easily drink several cans in one go.

    Will need to get some more when the weather turns sunny (Posted on 18/03/2016)

  12. Excellent north of England brew! Review by David_86

    Great to see North East beer at this standard! A good pale ale and shows cans can be as good as bottles (Posted on 05/12/2015)

  13. Yorkshire via Chicago Review by Gramercy Riff
    Rating

    Does exactly what it says on the can....an American style extremely refreshing pale ale (more of an IPA really). Great stuff from North Yorks!! (Posted on 19/11/2015)

  14. A bit boring Review by Andrew

  15. Crowing... Review by Ady Gray

    Cascade hops? Can't go wrong there then...and Roosters haven't. Light, fresh, fruit overtones. Lovely stuff (Posted on 21/07/2015)

  16. Buy a few... Review by Broonzy
    Rating

    Like other reviewers, I can't beleive this is a canned ale. Smells incredible, light, tasty and moreish. I'm genuinely gutted I only had one of these in my fathers day case. (Posted on 24/06/2015)

  17. Great New Brewery Review by Ay Pee Horne
    Rating

    I've supped all of Yankee's newly canned ales and they're all delicious. The common theme is that they all smell out of this world. The nose on every can of theirs is sensational. Anyway, this is a fruity little citrus session ale which is crisp and refreshing. (Posted on 09/06/2015)

  18. Heaven in a can Review by Markiemark
    Rating

    I just can't believe that something this good can come out of a can! I don't know what I expected but this beer is just spectacular. Much more of an IPA than a simple pale ale but then just fantastic flavours. An all of that out of a tin can, I just don't know how they do that. Try it now you must (Posted on 07/06/2015)

  19. Roosters Yankee's Dandy Review by Roddenberry
    Rating

    Roosters Yankee Pale Ale on my little tasting session next. Flowery and hoppy on the nose, pours to a large head that quickly halves. Somewhere between gold and amber in colour. Hoppy and bitter on first taste, subtle flowery notes and wonderfully bitter and dry with a slight metallic note on the after taste. Gorgeous beer. (Posted on 09/05/2015)

  21. Myeh Review by Cannybrew
    Rating

    Looks: a golden yellow well carbonated light brew with thin white whispy head short lived. Smell: bright, fresh, grapefruit. Taste: drier and flatter than expected. Bitter, cut grass. Bitter again. Feel: long mouthfeel and as you guess, bitter. Overall: myeh (Posted on 24/04/2015)

    Finally a decent entry from a Yorkshire brewery (bar Thornbridge) Lovely light refreshing, great session ale (Posted on 24/04/2015)

  23. Yankee Doodle Dandy Review by wvari
    Rating

    A light, golden bitter. Some carbonation which carries the floral hop and fruity aroma forward. Made for a cracking lunchtime beer with my duck salad. Has more of a fruitiness than the usual pale ale citrus.. lovely stuff! (Posted on 16/04/2015)
