Timothy Taylor Landlord - Bottled (England)
Timothy Taylor "Landlord" Strong Pale Ale
150 years of brewing experience is behind Timothy Taylor's famous "Landlord". From Keighley in Yorkshire, England; the brewery still uses fresh spring water from under the Pennines in all of it's beers. Along with "Landlord" it produces Best Bitter, Golden Best, Ram Tam and Dark Mild and these can all be found on tap at various pubs in around Yorkshire. We reviewed the bottled "Landlord" and this is slightly different to the cask version in flavour and alcohol.
Timothy Taylor must be doing something right because "Landlord" has won more awards within England than any other beer.
A beautiful amber colour is presented once poured, with a slight off-white head. The aroma is quite strong with citrus almost orange marmalade with a hit of the malty caramel beneath. The flavour is predominantly caramel/toffee with a nice malty bitterness to finish.
Would recommend this beer as both a session beer and with it's moreish bitter qualities can be enjoyed as a standalone.
Very much looking forward to tasting the version from the tap. Timothy Taylor's "Landlord" is a serious contender...
