Easy Rider is a subtle easy drinking premium strength pale ale. The initial crisp bitterness gently gives way to a lingering fruity aftertaste.

dynamiteninja (1679) - Norfolk, 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.

dogbomb (1051) - ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2012
Cask. Clear gold with a thick white head. Light malty nose with a hint of lemon. Bags of flavour in the mouth - biscuit at first, then a large pow of spices and citrus fruit and mellowing down with more spiciness and malty warmth on the palate. A cracking pint.

BlackHaddock (4924) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2012
July 2009: Brown 500ml bottle, just out of date by one month, supposed to be stored and served at 12C degrees, this one started off a bit cooler. Poured into a standard pint glass in my garden on a boilingly hot day. Very pale, not clear, a slightly hazey body with a thin white head. A few bubbles rising, but not many. Hoppy aroma, with some earthiness and grass thrown in. As the sun warmed the beer a citrus smell could also be detected, grapefuit and lemons, but not a sour odour, more of an aromatic savoury, smell. The citrus was in the taste from the start, as were the hops. Barley and wheat used in the brew, hence the almost negligible cloudy appearance. A good bitterness and a certain tartness in the aftertaste let you know this is a good pale ale. The label claims it is a more refreshing version of their top selling ’Pale Rider’. I can’t argue with that, because this is exactly as they say. I have had ’Pale Rider’ on draught many times and have a bottle waiting to be reviewed in the garage.

Pale amber with musty English hops and Fruity yeast nose. Biting carbonation, initially sweet with dry shortcake malt and a rounded fresh picked fruit sweetness balancing well against residual bitterness
