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.

500ml bottle, poured into an imperial pint glass

A- pours a dark golden amber color with a small foamy white head that retains nicely long after the pour, leaving some short lasting lace behind

S- subtle but complex floral and fruity hop aromas up front, underlying malt gives aromas of biscuit and caramel, with notes of bread and toasted nuts. It finishes woodsy with an herbal tea aroma, quite complex

T- big malty bill up front with highlights of caramel and toasted bread crust, there's a nice nuttiness that kicks in mid-palate with some earthy tobacco and herbal tea, fruity and floral hop bitterness on a dry finish

M- medium body with moderate carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel and a crisp finish

O- by far the best English Pale that I've had, nice balance of bready caramel malt with herbal and floral hop, I can see why this is considered the standard

500ml bottle. BB Jan 15. Pours a pale amber colour with a pillowy off-white head which persisted. Restrained aroma of honey, fruity hops and sweet, caramel malt. Light sweetness at the start gives way to a mineral, light to medium bitter finish. Light to medium body. Nicely balanced and very easy drinking.

Been a long time coming.

A clear copper with a dense, white head with excellent retention and gorgeous lacing, this looks spectacular. The nose is awesome. A beautiful , bready, caramel, toffee note with burnt sugar, butterscotch, honey, minty hops, a little bit of earthy hops, this is fabulous stuff. The palate opens with a wonderful balance of flavors. A prominent bitterness, fresh, earthy, mildly minty and mildly resiny is coupled with a melange of malt flavors. Toffee, butterscotch, burnt sugar, honey, and a little cotton candy are all present. Drying and bitter on the finish, there's a lingering earthy bitterness that's spectacular. Medium light in body with moderate carbonation, a little higher than ideal, this beer feels great on the palate. A truly spectacular beer, I hope I get to try it fresh and on cask someday. Comes with highest recommendations.
