This is probably my favourite pint. Studying in London, this was on tap at a pub across the street from my Department which was where my PhD Supervisor hid out.

wyzzywyz22 (2108) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - APR 17, 2008
Cask, 7 stars, Thornton Hough. My first UK outdoor pint of 2008! Dark amber colour with a medium lingering white head. Some lacing. Dense hoppy aroma, flavour is more of the same with a nice grassy undercurrent and a tasty bitter finish.

sm89walt (1992) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 20, 2008
Cask - Rose & Crown, Canterbury. A handsome bronzed orange colour with an off-white head. Distinctly crisp floral and resiny aromas. The floral notes of the hops are rather pronounced in the flavour too with a clear malty undertone to back it up. Very pleasant resiny hop finish and a clean palate and soft medium bodied palate.

larstangaa (104) - DENMARK - FEB 28, 2008
Cask at pub The Chequers at High Street in Oxford (nice place - great pies). Orangey amber. Floral, raisin, bitter aroma. Soft and crisp flavoru - lots of everything - hops, malt, intensivity. Best britisk ale ever - for me. Tasted though in lovely company with my wife, a few hours before visiting The Fat Duck in Bray - full of joyfull anticipation - could perhaps distract my views?

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 22, 2008
Coppery colored, little yellow head. Sweet, slightly hopped aroma with lots of lemon, not too original one. Medium bodied. Flavor is more floral with still sweet lemon and fruits, aftertaste is still rather round with lemon. Basic cask.

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 arent going anywhere. Lovely spicy, sitrus overtones come and go. Dont want it through a sparkler, I like the natural caress. Needs a few weeks age in cellar. Hugely complex, what a yeast.
