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.

bartholos (65) - GERMANY - JUN 30, 2015
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.

jjsint (1339) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JUN 25, 2015
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.

ljthiessen (699) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUN 25, 2015
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.

northropfrye (2600) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JUN 24, 2015
Copper body white head nice lacing. Fruity aroma. Taste is well balanced on the sweet side with a touch of hops. Overall a decent bitter. Enjoyable.

Color anaranjado. Dos dedos de espuma que desaparece rapido. Aroma afrutado, a naranja, citrico. Tambien especiado, mucha pimienta negra. Efervescente en boca y bastante sabrosa, muy frutal, naranja y tambien con un toque acaramelado. Especias. Compleja. Buena ale.

Sampled at flatlanders beer festival. Mostly traditional English hop aromas and flavors. Not a lot of balancing malts...a bit thin on the finish. Average for me.

Gary (1633) - Brentford ,London , Texas, Somerset, ENGLAND - JUN 5, 2015
500ml. drunk from a pint glass. Pretty much a stereotypical Yorkshireman on the bottle label. Madonna herself is/was a fan of this beer when she was pretending to be British . nose of lemon hops , toffee , grain. large white head above orange beer. the flavours are toffee malts , dry ,spicy lemony hops , chewy . An easy to sink kinda ale that is better cask, but a solid bottled beer too.

redders1974 (288) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2015
Not quite as nice as on cask not quite as cramy or smooth but a good bottled beer non the less something intrinsically Yorkshire about it smoothnand well balanced more carbonated than the cask version.
