This bottle of beer is as close to the cask taste as I’ve found. Well impressed with it

Aroma is malts, yeast and fruit. The flavor is malts, mild nuttiness, fruit and hops in the finish.

Mid amber coloured beer with a thick, frothy white head. A light malty aroma, with sweetish dried fruit note of sultanas and a touch of nuttiness. Dry mouthfeel. Bitter taste, a certain hop fruit tartness comes through as well. Then a sweeter malt flavour helps to ease the initial bitter/tart combination. The finish is long and bitter.

Bottle. I was surprised to find this at the Pinole Bevmo. I thought I was going to have to wait till I get the UK to try it. It pours a really nice burnished gold color with a fluffy, stable off white head. The aroma has some nice firm maltiness with bread and toffee with bright citrus and earthy hop notes. The flavor is wonderful with strong notes of woody and lightly minty hops backed by a crisp malt profile. The finish has strong earthy bitterness. The body is pretty light, but not at all weak and packed with flavor. A great bitter. I hope someday I can try the cask version.

Sizzler80 (502) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUN 8, 2012
Dark amber, light copper pour with a frothy white head and lace. Very active in the glass. Not much on the nose. Slight hops, malt, bread, smoked notes and slightly stale. Really nice rounded flavour profile. I find English ales quite analagous but Landlord has a nice edge to it. Berry fruity tang leading into a hoppy/smoky bitterness. It's full bodied and highly carbonated. Very nice indeed. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice bitter, one of Michael Jackson’s 500 classic. Malty side of bitters, buttery and grainy with a little floral hoppiness. Nice session beer.

500ml Bottle: Aroma of malt, hops, leaves, and brown paper bags. Poured amber/orange in color with a small, off-white head that diminished but lasted throughout as a film on top of the beer, as well as around the edges. Clear. Sparkling. Flavor is slightly sweet and lightly bitter. Tastes like it smells, of malt, hops, leaves, and brown paper bags. Medium body. Average texture. Average carbonation. Slightly sweet, lightly bitter, malt, hops, leaves, and brown paper bag finish.
