3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml bottle pours mid amber with a beautiful white head that shows decent retention. It smells fresh as a daisy, bright and slightly fruity, bit of grass. There’s a bit of fruit on the taste and some sweet caramel and a metallic note. Really soft mouthfeel but a bit thin and watery, carbonation is bang on. Decent bitter finish This may be a technically great beer and it tastes fine, it’s just not that exciting to me.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A more traditional style of pale ale (as opposed to the New World styles). The hops are piquant, spicy, grassy with a touch of lemon at the edges. Very well balanced with more flavour than I expected from a mere 4.1%

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Attractive deep golden with long lasting foamy head and soft carbonation. Pleasant plummy, fruity nose. Medium sweet biscuity taste with plum, caramel, lemon and grass. Gently bitter finish. Slips down very smoothly. Very nice beer, would love it to have a bit more kick in the finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Dark golden colored with a small smooth head. The aroma is light fruity with notes of citrus and orange along with some doughy malt in the back. The malt brings some light sweetness into the taste which, however, is strongly dominated by bitterness. The body is light to medium and the Landlord has a strong bitter finish.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Sainsbury’s, drunk at home. Copper with some carbonation but not a lot of head. Malty and slightly sulphurous nose with some orange peel. Basic bitter taste with a doughy sweetness near the end. Hoppy bitter aftertaste. It’s ok, but I can’t rave about this beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Clear amber pour with a quickly dissipating head. Mostly grainy malts, grassy hops, slightly spicy and earthy. Not a lot going on, but easy drinking, and flavourful for the ABV.
