On form this is just outstanding. Badly kept it is a different story, but well worth trying just to see. davidhurghada (1) - - APR 4, 2011 does not count

When this beer is on it’s 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 aren’t going anywhere. Lovely spicy, sitrus overtones come and go. Don’t want it through a sparkler, I like the natural caress. Needs a few weeks age in cellar. Hugely complex, what a yeast. Nick_GP (2) - - DEC 28, 2015 does not count
One of the truly great draft bitters. Perfect balance of hops and malt. Creamy.

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 Ralphie123 (1) - - JUN 22, 2013 does not count
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 doesn’t travel too well outside Yorkshire! blueden (31) - Essex, ENGLAND - DEC 22, 2013
Superb beer, as a homebrewer styrian goldings are one of my favourite hops and you can really taste them in this beer. Tarosama (84) - Northumberland, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2014
Cask @ The Black Bull in Blaydon. Served in clean Timothy Taylor Pint Glass, Perfect temperature, head size/retention, sweet flavour, subtle bitter finish. Truly awesome. I could drink it all night. downside_up (13) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - NOV 13, 2014
A really amazing ale. Full of hop and malt flavours that leave you wanting more. An amazing session beer that can be drunk from sunrise until sunrise.
