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.

madsberg (10457) - Søborg, DENMARK - JUL 29, 2004
Bottled: Yellow coloured. Clear. White medium head. Light hops, some herbs and malt in the aroma. Malty and hoppy flavour. Some vague fruit notes. Is light bitter in the end, but dosn’t last long on the palate. Thin body.

haddonsman (1234) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2004
Cask at the Bell Inn, Smalley. Pleasent gold colour, good hoppy nose, flavour is inferior to Pale Rider which is more fully developed blond.

JonMoore (1896) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2004
On draught at the Swan in the Rushes, Loughborough. Golden coloured. Very hoppy aroma. Hoppy and fresh flavour with a dry and bitter finish. Refreshing, but a bit thin on the palate.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 29, 2004
Cask@Catford Beer Festival. Failry light and bready/grainy. Some subtle hops to finsih, but quite light and a little watery, uneventful.

SilkTork (5275) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 29, 2004
Catford Fest. Gravity. Sweetish best bitter. Easy drinking. Inoffensive. Not a lot to say.

chriso (7428) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 21, 2004
A bit bland, with some green hop character, but not much else of note. Rather thin. This is apparently a weaker version of Pale Rider for those who don’t want 5% alcohol in a quaffing beer. Unfortunately, much of the character seems to have been sacrificed too. Tastes as if it has been simply watered down. Cask (gravity), Catford Beer Festival.

DanielBrown (3911) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 24, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 29, 2005 24/2/04 -Hand pulled at the Old Joint Stock, Birmingham (during their week-long real ale promotion). Golden appearance, with no real aroma. Creamy, tasty ale, with a slight hop taste. Rather undramatic - gulp after gulp. Creamy head and likewise the lacing. Uncomplex. [2.2]. RE-RATE, 28/3/05 - Hand pulled at the Fountain, Lower Gornal, Black Country. Nice lemony bitter, with a balanced, soft quality. Not too aggressive, but nicely flavoured and swiggable hoppiness. Much better today than when previosuly smapled. [3.5]

imdownthepub (10626) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 30, 2003
Cask Conditioned at The Anchor, Birmingham. Yellow beer with thin head. This is a thin watery tasting beer with little flavour to speak of, there is a strong green hop to pull it along though, which rescues it from really low scores.
