Timothy Taylor Landlord has a very thick, spongy, beige head, a clear, extremely bubbly, amber appearance, and heavy lacing rings left on the sides of the glass. The aroma is of sweet, toasted bread crust and toffee, and the taste is of toffee, slight caramel, sweet, medium-roasted malt, and a mellow hop bitterness, which picks up in the aftertaste. Mouthfeel is medium, slick, and soft, and Timothy Taylor Landlord finishes semi-dry, refreshing, and very drinkable. Overall, I really like this. NOTE: bottle labeled only as "Pale Ale", not "Strong". RJT

Derbeth (198) - Kraków, POLAND - DEC 12, 2013
Amber colour, white head that does not last long. Aroma is not very intensive, of malt and fruit. Medium bitterness. Light body, lively carbonation (too high for me). Average.

ianwelby (333) - SCOTLAND - DEC 11, 2013
Dark-gold beer with a thick, frothy head. Light aroma of caramel and toasty malt. Flavour is an initial tangy-sweet hit. Quite dry and bitter in the finish. Quite drinkable.

M_Sack (280) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - NOV 29, 2013
Bottle. Deep, clear copper with a long lasting small white head and good lacing. Aromas of subtle caramel and a hint of lemon blossom. Nice up front bitterness with an ever so slight pine beginning, followed by citrus and a deep caramel backbone. Dry, bitter finish with limited carbonation. Enjoyable.

Cristobal37 (230) - Canyon Lake, California, USA - NOV 4, 2013
A good pale ale in the British pub tradition. Tart and dry but this one has a great creamy sweet aroma. Taste the hops subtly. Tastes really fresh and paired well with grilled chicken and spinach. Comparable to other fine British pale ales.

BlackHaddock (3183) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 21, 2013
500ml Bottle: BBD end of Jun 14, poured into a UK pint sleeve at home on 20 Oct 13. Prefer a well kept cask Landlord to the bottle, but this was OK. Light brown to light amber in colour, clean and clear: on top a decent white head than stayed. The smell was a mix of light malts and fruity hop notes, as was the taste. Semi-dry feel to the whole pint although the malts do try and add some sweetness. Honest and fine, a good bottle of Pale Ale.
