On form this is just outstanding. Badly kept it is a different story, but well worth trying just to see.

When this beer is on itís hard to beat. This reminds me of an English version of Sierra Celebration Ale. Hops and big malt everywhere. Delicious at 50 degrees farenheit.

Crunchie (36) - Somerset, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 15, 2009 Landlord with its balanced hoppiness and wonderful mouthfeel is a really rather special drink. Hoppy aroma, oranges and resin, sometimes a hint of sulphur, caramelly malt. Full mouthfeel, initial malt sweetness and attacking hops, rounded and balanced, hops are prominent - there is no lag in flavour, no poor part of the palate. Lovely balanced bitter finish, malt and hops fight for attention, hops arenít going anywhere. Lovely spicy, sitrus overtones come and go. Donít want it through a sparkler, I like the natural caress. Needs a few weeks age in cellar. Hugely complex, what a yeast.

UPDATED: OCT 24, 2003 just had it at the same place as mr nuffield (although not with him sadly). very floral, slightly sulfury aroma. rich but light malty palate, with long bitter rosewater finish. love it. 5/03 i'm banging this up a couple of points cause it should be right up there in my list 25/10/03 just had the bottled version last night and it was a completely different beer - fresh enough, still quite bitter, but aroma and length of finish are nowhere near the cask version

The best bitter I have ever tasted, beautiful hoppy finish and lingering maltiness. But the head disappears a bit too quickly in this Cambridgeshire pub; it just doesnít travel too well outside Yorkshire!

Superb beer, as a homebrewer styrian goldings are one of my favourite hops and you can really taste them in this beer.

UPDATED: JAN 31, 2005 Cask @ Jude the Obscure, Oxford, UK Backlog 14 Aug 2004
This pint was in top condition. I have had this beer on many, many occasions, but never as good as this! It had a malty dishwater (perfect!) aroma. The flowery hop taste added to the experience. And, to round it off, a lovely biscuity aftertaste.
RERATE: Cask @ Peveril of the Peak, Manchester, UK 27 Jan 2005
This sample was slightly sour. (Rerated just to fit my personal logs) 5/5/5/2/8 (2.5)
