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

Nickls (2374) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - APR 30, 2010
(Old BA rate - cask) Transparent golden color; thin, white head with a few bubbles in the mix. Wonderful lacing throughout the sample. Nice mild hop bitterness, with some maltiness in the nose. Fresh and a bit citrusy. Great hop bittnerness up front with the citrus flavors given away in the nose. Like some US summer ale interpretations, with some tartness in the finish. Slickish in MF, with next to no carbonation (cask offering). Very drinkable brew, and pretty refreshing actually. Overall, this could have been a bit more balanced as the flavors didn’t necessarily meld together at all points in the sample. However, it was a pleasant surprise

sm89walt (1946) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 19, 2009
Cask - Artillery Arms, Ramsgate. Pours clear and golden in colour with a white head leaving a sparse lacing. Sharp grapefruit citrus nose with some straw aromas. Grapefruity bitterness whilst also lemon, wood, nut and some earthiness comes through on the tongue. Crisp and refreshing with a smack of hops. Soft body and low carbonation. An ideal summer pint.

Blonde pint with a thin head. Drinks a little thin/watery and quite bland. Some hops but not much else. Forgettable.

Bottle, Ale Cellar, Darlington. "They’re not scared of you.They’re scared of what you represent to them. All we represent to them is somebody who needs a haircut. Oh, no. What you represent to them......is freedom. Freedom’s what it’s all about." Oh yeah man... Pale golden colour, white head. Some hop and citrus in the aroma; these themes continue furthur into the flavour. Dry bitter finish. OK, but shame its not a classic brew to pay homage to a classic movie !
