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.

Claretsdrinker (2) - Croydon, ENGLAND - SEP 16, 2007 does not count
Well kept cask-conditioned pint at The Claret Free House, Addiscombe, Croydon. Light, golden, immensely quaffable ale. A dry citrus taste of hop is followed by a dry finish.

maeib (8664) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - SEP 15, 2007
Cask conditioned - handpump - Wig and Pen, Northampton. A light gold coloured beer with a white head. The aroma is lovely fresh hops with grapefruit and orange notes. The taste also has nice citric accented hops and a little biscuit malt. A very nice beer, particularly the smell.

scotty (1052) - SCOTLAND - MAR 28, 2007
Bottle, Eskview Wines (?) Musselburgh. This is ok, a bit hazy, but light gold with a good white head that leaves a nice lace. Nose is fruity and slightly malty, the same can be said of the flavour. I feel it’s a bit on the sugary side but it’s easy drinking stuff. Similar to its big brother Pale Rider.

Nekronos (3633) - Xalapa, MEXICO - JUL 8, 2006
Very nice, but a little normal in flavour, the malty is good but it has some bitter features. Blonde in colour and foam.

StueyD (1145) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - MAY 7, 2006
A very pale yellow gold coloured beer with a weak white head. A light hop aroma with a hint of malt towards the end. A dry citrus taste of hop, followed by a smooth light, malt flavour. The finish is fairly dry. (Cask - The Fox & Hounds, Heacham, Norfolk).

yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 23, 2006
Tasted 23/02/2006. 500ml bottle from Rumble’s, Wellington. Think Kelham Gold, with a little more guts. Looks the same, though laces a little better. Slightly more melon fruit and some lolly-like malt character on the nose. Then a herbal bitterness through the middle. I suspect that Kelham Gold may be from the same mash but watered down to a lower strength. Again, another extremely well made beer with no outstanding characteristics. nb: Either these beers are no longer bottle-conditioned or they have the least amount of conditioning yeast I’ve ever seen...
