Bright and biscuity. A smooth malt flavor with just the right carbonation that's very old world.

Perfect balance between hops and malt. Fruity, great bitterness, some caramel. Amazing Ale. Hope to have on cask one day.

L - Amber color with a foamy head, lots of carbonation bubbles and a head that dissipated quickly.
S - Grainy malts.
T - Very similar to the smell with hoppy flavors coming out.
M - Light body with a crisp dry finish.
O - Easy drinking and well rounded.

Poured into a Duvel tulip. No freshness date.

A- Pours a medium amber color with a 1/2 inch off-white head that retains well before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a half sheet of bubbly surface foam. Not-so-resilient lacing slides quickly down the glass.

S- Nice cereal grain malt aroma that reminds me of fresh oatmeal. And it's not sweet like fresh wort but rather has more of that straight grainy smell.

T- Flavor mirrors the aroma with a husky grain taste, slight earthy hop bitterness and biscuity malt. Extremely drinkable yet very flavorful and well-balanced.

M- Small hop bite with medium carbonation and a body leaning toward the lighter side.

O- As far as the English Pale Ale style goes, this is quite outstanding. It would be tough to find a beer more tasty than this while still residing within the traditional style guidelines.

Referring to this beer on tap in UK, not the over-carbonated bottles you will occasionally find in US.

Appearance - Sold amber colouration even heading towards dark amber. Streaming CO2 and a modest head of light foam that has low retention.

Smell - Funky malty smell which is bready like a half baked baguette or Dutch Suker Bole.

Taste - The flavour is pretty much exactly the same as the smell, an odd dough like flavour similar to half baked baguette and suker bole and also some mild hop bitterness that is almost invisible.

MF - Thin and mild to the point of being pretty dull. It is not bad just not exciting and a little poor for the style. Light bodied and boring.

Overall - Pretty solid and decent enough but not a particularly exciting beer.

500ml bottle (BBE October 2015) into a nonic glass

Look: Very dark amber, almost coppery - fair amount of fizz in this particular bottle, so the head dissipated pretty quickly.

Smell: Quite fruity with a hit of hops and malt. Other than that, not really a lot to get hold of.

Taste: It's a fairly hoppy ale, and the hops are well up front - doesn't quite mask the citrusy flavours, but these are more noticeable in the aftertaste anyway, at least for me.

Feel: the initial fizziness didn't last long, leaving little in the way of noticeable carbonation. It's not a heavy beer by any means, and sits nicely between full-on pale (blonde) ales and porters/stouts. Fairly dry and hoppy finish, but not overbearingly so.

Overall: being a Yorkshire ale I feel I should stand up for Landlord but really there's no need to - it's a popular draught brew in several pubs hereabouts and is a deserved reputation as a good, solid pint. One of my favourites if I'm drinking out.
