3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear dirty gold with a 3 finger off white head that has great retention. Aroma is planty and citrus hops up front, some toast, tree fruit, nice acidic goldings hop presence. Flavor is toasty, cereal and nutt malts, some caramel, nice crisp mineral and apple notes, bready and lightly fruity yeast. Light body, with surprisingly creamy feel on entry, light, but blanketing and a hair sharp carbonation. Really nice well sorted bitter.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at home. Clear deep golden pour, thin white head. Aroma is spicy, malty, English hops, a hint of caramel, cream and slightly fruity. Flavor is solid malty, nice bitter hops and very clean. Well balanced and with a thick body for the low ABV. Nice one.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. One of the prime examples of a classic bitter. Caramel, biscuit and a dry hop flavour. An impressive creamy body for the ABV.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Asda. A big sulphur nose. Amber with a big head. Not much body or character. Boring really.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
500cc bottle pours an almost clear orange gold with a lazy white thin head, aroma is of grains and honey. Taste is malty, buttery and with a lasting funky bitterness. Active and light, but the hops’ flavor and bitter is not doing it for me.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
500ml brown bottle with a label presumably picturing a landlord, poured into a pint. Appearance is clear amber with a large frothy off-white head that reduced quickly, leaving a little lacing. Aroma of caramel, apricot marmalade, honey and bread. Flavours of caramel, bread, toffee and honey. Taste is light-medium sweet and medium bitter. Palate is medium-light bodied, smooth texture and average carbonation. Timothy Taylor ’s Landlord is a decent bitter, but I would have liked it stronger and more bitter.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
500ml bottle poured into a pint glass. Freshness note indicated on the bottle.
Aroma - Ample toffee and caramel notes, faint nuttiness. Floral hops.
Appearance - Creamy, off-white head. Pale amber hue; the picture of a perfect bitter. Sporadic lacing coats the glass as the beer is consumed.
Taste - Sweet flavors (Toffee, caramel, pumpernickel bread) are balanced by floral hop bitterness. Finishes semi dry. Previous experiences have recalled a more pronounced bitterness, lending me to believe this bottle may have been on the older side. Nonetheless, an extraordinary well layered drink.
Palate - Snappy, crisp carbonation enhances the experience. Medium bodied.
Overall - If only more U.K. bitters were available in the United States, though few would have the qualities to match this one. I’d kill to try this one on cask. Easily one of my favorite beers, a desert island choice for sure.

Bottle from tesco. Good retaining head. Lots of bubbles. Sweet malty aroma. Nice refreshing taste that starts like honey then bitter taste that lasts as beer goes down.

Spændende øl med god smag. Frisk og let bitter. Absolut værd at cykle langt efter.

Dark Bottle. Pours medium amber, smells musky and with hints of caramel. No head. Taste is fantastic to match aroma - musky and malty. Great.

500ml bottle pours a pale brown color without much head. Nice mild hop bitterness that is smooth through the whole taste.
