19th November 2016 – Review by Rob
The drinkers’ favourite, a 4.3% classic pale ale with a complex citrus and hoppy aroma. A recent survey revealed that Landlord has the highest proportion of drinkers who call it their favourite ale. And it has won more awards than any other beer, winning both CAMRA’s Champion Beer of Britain and the Brewing Industry Challenge Cup four times.
Landlord is the classic pale ale, traditionally brewed using the finest Golden Promise malted barley, whole leaf hops and pure Knowle Spring Water.
Landlord is a beer best drunk between 11º-13ºC – Keep out of the fridge!
Landlord is a full flavoured pale ale with a complex and hoppy aroma.
This is a very nice and smooth pale ale, weak enough at 4.1% to be drunk as a session beer all day long. It does not have a huge depth in flavour, a good 4/5 star beer and a beer that should be drunk certainly.
But Champion Beer of Britain? Good beer – yes, but I’d feel a tad ashamed in presenting this as the finest Britain has to offer, although this is more than a solid pale ale, there are so many more exciting Great British beers out there. I can see this offering getting slaughtered in a world beer competition.
