Timothy Taylor's award winning Landlord is often referred to as the drinkers' favourite and having now tried it for myself it's easy to see why.
This deep golden ale pours crystal clear with a loose frothy cream coloured head that slowly disappears but clings on for as long as it can. It has a mouthwatering aroma of caramel, malt and hops with a hint of floral herbals. The taste is absolutely unbelievable; nothing like citrussy pale ales I'm used to but a more rounded caramel malty version. Imagine toast dripping with butter, a malted milk biscuit followed by a segment of orange to add a bit of bitterness, and it's something like what I tasted in Landlord.
It's full bodied and very nicely carbonated to tickle the tongue as if you've had an orange sherbet sweet. Perfectly blended to be dry and sweet with a lovely bitter aftertaste, this is pale ale Yorkshire style and it's a huge thumbs up from me.
Landlord feels like a cross between a pale ale and a bitter which puts it on my drink again list and is one Ale Be Seeing Again.
Brewed by Timothy Taylor, West Yorkshire
