COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Also available bottle conditioned.
Easy Rider is a subtle easy drinking premium strength pale ale. The initial crisp bitterness gently gives way to a lingering fruity aftertaste.

On cask at Holy Inadequate, Etruria. Fresh on but the aroma of this beer is quite skunky. Noted by other raters too I see. Golden pour which takes a while to settle, OK golden ale spoilt by that aroma.

On cask at the Stockbridge Tap. Appearance - golden with a proportionate head. Nose - lemon and grapefruit. Some breadiness. Taste - bitter grapefruit plus pith on top. Palate - light bodied with a creamy yet zingy texture and a long dry finish. Overall - a bit too bitter for me.

Yves (2312) - Turnhout, BELGIUM - AUG 23, 2014
At my home with wim. Expired march 2014! Clear blond colored beer with medium white head and medium carbonation. Herby granny aroma. Medium palate. Finish is sweet herby. Brewed because the pale rider was too strong for the uk, as what the owner of kelham tolde us during open brewer day. A pity case pale rider is mocht bitter.

Handpulled from broomhill tavern, Sheffield. After one bad pint went down the drain, got another (no quibbling from the barman). Aroma is poor, malty but also something unpleasant there. Tastes fine, run of the mill blonde.

dynamiteninja (1561) - Richmond, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 12, 2013
Bottle from ASDA Harrogate. I know the description here says bottle conditioned, but there was no indication of that on the label, and there was no sediment in the bottle. Loose, thin white head, almost non existent. Clear gold body. Fruit, dough, hops, orange peel, nail varnish, fresh raspberries or artificial strawberries, sulphur, elderflower. Bittersweet with some tang. Nutty dry finish. Good.
