I am about 1/2 way through my first keg of Landlord clone. I have never used Styrian Goldings or WY1469 before. Comments have been, "Creamy mouthfeel", "refreshing", "little bit of grapefruit", nobody has had just one.
I have mad LOTS of ESBs prior to this, using WY1968, so I do not quite understand where the grapefruit is coming from. I also have never tried the original Landlord Bitter for comparison. Any thoughts?
