Timothy Taylor Landlord

One of my early brass bands rehearsed above The Fleece in Haworth a Timmy Taylor owned pub. I got a taste for Golden Best very early in life!
 
I'm really no expert at all but I've never found any beer to travel very well too far from its base.

I gave up beer as a student in London because the ones I knew weren't in condition and the London beers were just so different to my taste/experience at that time.

This explains why the most enjoyable TT I've had was in Dewsbury (dark mild by the way - I love a good mild).

At that time most London pubs served out of condition beer. Things are better now(I'm talking pre lockdown) but the prices difficult to swallow, perfectly reasonable for a single pint but they ought to sell a five pint carnet for a single session at half price, there would still be margin.

Beer Carnet for a St Ivel night out (5 pints) sounds like a great idea...!

Funny you should say that, after some glorious Black Sheep in Hawes a couple of weeks ago, I switched to that for the final pint last night and wished I'd stuck with the TT.

The Jolly Woodmen in Beckenham where we were has always managed so serve outstanding TT - not sure how so but it's cracking.
 
The Golden Best @Alex Jagger mentions is I think a "light mild" @Phil David - unusual style, but lovely stuff.

I've enjoyed all of the Tim Taylor beers I've had, but mainly drank them in Yorks. Decent pint of Landlord round the corner here in Nottingham, but as @Dan Vyvyan deduces, it's a pub that's serious about its beer.

As the inverse of Tim Taylor @Neil Holland, I don't like any of the Black Sheep beers. Must be the yeast I guess, unless there's another way of deriving a house style?
