Back in Dubbo

... for a few days to get some quiet to recover from Darwin.

I have a flat inspection on Wednesday so I need to be in Richmond. After that, I don't know.

Around The World In 80 Beers Episode 136: Timothy Taylor's Landlord

Timothy Taylor's Landlord.

Pours a slightly cloudy honey colour. The head is thick and white, and fades to a bubbly lacing. A lot of carbonation is visible in the glass.

First Sip: Sweet malts and a lot of citrus up front, with a little nuttyness and mild hoppy, dry after-taste. Mouth-feel is medium with a little carbonation tingle on the tongue.

This is a rather nice pale ale. A little lacking in the malty goodness I expect of English ales, but still highly drinkable. And it does get more drinkable as it warms in the glass. This is the sort of Yorkshire ale James Herriot used to write about in his series of Veterinary books - the mild, malty, nutty brews of the mid 1930s. I do like this ale. In fact, I would list it as a yummy beer.
