Bottle. Pours hazy orange amber with decent off white head and big lace. well retained. Earthy floral aromas, grain, light caramel. Medium light body, chewy, creamy mouthfeel, carbonation is medium. Caramel, grains, hop bitterness and flavour apparent right through the refreshing finish. Tasty beer.

Golden appearance - nice carbonation. Aroma is dominated by dough / earthy smell with an undercurrent caramel malt. Lovely taste - beautiful bitter sweet. Medium bodied with a nice finish. Great beer.

JoTheO (198) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 10, 2017
Bottle 500ml. Clear copper with a thin but rather fluffy white head. Malty aroma, dry taste of biscuits. Increasing temperature adds pears and some sweetness. Pleasantly drinkable

Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - JUN 4, 2017
Poured into an English pint glass, the appearance was a burnt orange/copper color with a finger’s worth of white foamy head that slid off fairly quick. Stringy soapy lace. The aroma had some estery sweet floral hops over top of buttered biscuits, somewhat cracker-like/touch of herbal. The flavor was moderately sweet pulling the malts in front to even the keel of the overall taste surrounding the hops. Aftertaste was quaint, somewhat malty, buttery and soapy. Finish was quick and malty. The palate was between light and medium bodied with a fair sessionability about it. Carbonation felt low but expected. ABV felt good. Overall, pretty good bitter with the diacetyl controlled enough to not be distracting. Probably be a good one for Americans to give a shit before delving into the world of Bitters.

Jabic (563) - Plainfield, Vermont, USA - JUN 3, 2017
Ar: Crispy bread, doughy and slightly toasted; peppery hops, with a little dark fruit and moss; slight butter and sweet cream. Ap: Copper and crystal clear; medium light tan head with good retention, leaving an elegant layer of bubbles, most small, some medium. T: Toast and red apple; some pineapple and coconut; savory maltiness, with hints of caramel but very little sweetness; hop flavor is herbal, a little grassy and mossy; touch of butter and cream. P: Medium body with medium carbonation; finish is dry. O: A fantastic bitter; full of malt flavor and British yeast character, with hints of butter and spice and a classic ester profile; hops are present and flavorful but do not distract from the deep, complex maltiness.

500 ml bottle. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a mostly clear copper color with about an inch off-white head that stuck around for a while. There’s also a lot of lacing. The brew smells like dried fruit, candied oranges, caramel, and earthiness. Taste is similar to the aroma, but there’s also some floralness and bready malt flavors. Nice lingering bitter finish. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s smooth and easy to drink with a good amount of carbonation. I think Landlord is a good, easy drinking English Pale Ale. I’d like to try this again in the future, definitely worth picking up. I liked it! $5.39 a bottle.

cmacklin (1127) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 21, 2017
500ml bottle. Pours a clear amber-orange with a medium, frothy, long lasting, off-white head that leaves curtains of lace. Aroma of toasted malt, caramel and orange. Sweet flavour of oranges and caramel malt with a bitter grass finish. Light to medium body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. Not bad.

3.9
NallePalle (628) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAY 5, 2017
Bottle, 50 cl. Very pleasant bitter, smooth and gentle. Well balanced hops/malt.

3.6
Davros IX (334) - Hertford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2017
2016 catch up - A very good bitter. Good bitter hops and a biscuity flavour from the malts make for a very drinkable beer. A classic of the type as far as I am concerned.

3.2
FireGlider (582) - Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 23, 2017
Clear orange color with small white head. Grain aroma with bitter taste that smoothly transits to sweet caramel aroma in aftertaste.

3.2
Nordcore (1452) - Lyngen alps, NORWAY - APR 21, 2017
Bottle 50 cl. Amber, cloudy with a medium offwhite head. Sweet malt, hops and caramel. Light bitter with a dry hops and corn end.
