Timothy Taylor Landlord Pale Ale - 4.3% ABV - Purchased at The Foodery Northern Liberties in Philadelphia, PA.
A: Pours a very clear golden amber hue with four fingers of frothy white foam and lots of bubbles in the body. Sheets of lacing line the IPA glass. An impressive looking brew, almost perfect in appearance.
S: Sulphur, herbal-grassy-earthy hops, honeyed cracker, floral notes, grainy malt, orange jujube, hint of lemon, perfume. A vibrant yet classically English nose. Awesome.
T: Herbal, grassy, and earthy hops, caramel, cracker-like malt, orange pekoe tea, slight sulphur, jujube, balanced and somewhat tannic bitterness with lemony afters. A delicious, nuanced bitter.
M: Medium-bodied, silky-smooth palate, crisp carbonation, spicy and prickly hop bitterness lingers long with a balanced, drying finish. Nice.
O: An archetype EPA that hits all of the right notes. I can definitely see why Landlord is considered the benchmark for the style, and I would gladly buy this again.

Poured from 500 ml bottle into an English pub glass. Initially large off-white head that quickly dissolves down, leaving a nice light butterscotch bronze liquid, moderately bubbly and smooth on the palate. Aroma is floral earthy hops, that "forest floor" smell one can read about, with a subtle sweet grain maltiness that almost evokes "lager" in my perhaps addled mind and a grape-like fruitiness. Fairly sweet on the palate, light buttered toast and corn meal, light orange and Concord grape, with everything blurring together (in a good way). Overarching impression is one of juiciness and a front to back citric character, albeit nothing harsh or astringent. Nil alcohol taste. My example may be slightly oxidized but nothing that masks the beer's underlying complexity. Subtlety is indeed strength.

Dark amber colour with good lacing and carbonation.

The aroma is mild and of earthy floral hops.

The taste is malty and sweet with earthy floral hops and lingering bitterness. A pleasant flavour. Combining the best of English beer flavours without anything striking. Well balanced.

Overall this is very flavourful for the low avb and is a good representation of the English Pale Ale style. No one facet of the beer stands out but it's well balanced nature is its strength.

82/10

As an American recently moved to London, I'm still trying to find some go-to brews. I'm finding a lot of the bitters and pale ales just don't do it for me...mostly because I'm craving some fresh hop flavor per American microbrew standards. However, I've had some enjoyable, if forgettable beers in the process. Timothy Taylor's Landord is one of those. Not much nose...some hint of musty English hops and a little bready-fruityness. Overall flavor pretty good with balanced malt and bitterness. I get a little of that toasted bread characteristic others mention, but not that much. Overall, a pretty flavorful brew with good balance and full mouthfeel. However, like many pretty good beers in this style, I find it to be pretty forgettable. Kinda like a Sam Adams. That is to say, I'd be happy to drink some more, but can see myself dreaming about it at night.

500ml bottle, $5.49. I usually avoid English beers because I worry about freshness but I picked this up after gearing it's a good one. Light caramel color, decent head. Aroma is sort Of bready. Flavor is malty and pretty darn good. Pretty much what I was expecting from an English pale, not bad at all.

Pretty infamous English pale it seems, finally getting around to review it.

Appearance - Copper-colored beer with a white head. A mostly full cap is left by the end along with bits of lace.

Smell - On the faint side, but pleasant notes of tea leaves, honey, bread, light spices and fruits.

Taste - Nice improvement here, nice full-feeling malt profile of butter, toasted biscuit and toffee. Decent floral/herbal/citrus hop fix. Still getting some brown sugar-esque spice tones.

Mouthfeel - Very nice malt-driven feel while still providing some hop bitterness, light but ample carbonation, way fuller than you'd expect for such a low ABV.

Overall - Admittedly, I'm not the biggest English ale fan, this is probably one of the better examples I've had of a low ABV pale ale though. Flavor and mouthfeel are especially noteworthy considering the strength, plenty of tasty malt with a decent little hop dose as well, easy to throw back a 500ml of this.
