I'm sure most of you are thinking that we've finally reviewed a Young's beer with a normal name. Umm, guess again. Half liter, tall bottle. RamRod. Can you get more phallic? No, I think not. It's my understanding that this is Young's flagship ale, and it's like they're saying "Beer for Men with Large Penises, just like our bottles." They even have livestock on the bottle, for the Welsh and Scottish drinkers (although it should be noted that it's a ram, which is a male sheep). There's a nice balance between the hops and the malt, although the malt was more prevalent to me, and overall an enjoyable beer. Now if I can just get past the fact that it's a penis marketing campaign, all will be fine.
