Landlord by Timothy Taylor’s is one of the most popular ales in the UK. But how many calories are there in a pint of Landlord? How strong is it? Is Landlord gluten-free? Or vegan? What beer is similar to Landlord? Let’s find out.
There are 222 calories in a pint of Landlord (568ml). The cask version of Landlord is 4.3% while the bottled version is 4.1% abv. Because Landlord is brewed with malted barley, it cannot be gluten-free, though the bottled version is low in gluten. Landlord is not vegan as it is clarified with isinglass.
In this article, I will be answering the above questions more thoroughly. I will also talk about beers that are similar to Landlord, in case you fancy something slightly different.
The Timothy Taylor website is superb and gives you all the nutritional information you require. There are 39 calories per 100ml for the cask version and 38 calories per 100ml for the bottled. Usually, it is the other way round, as bottled ale is often stronger.
As I mentioned earlier, Timothy Taylor’s Landlord is unusual in that the cask version is stronger than the bottled version. The cask is 4.3% while the bottle is just 4.1%. Granted, the difference is minimal, but it is still pretty rare.
Timothy Taylor’s Landlord is not gluten-free. This is because it is brewed with malted barley which contains gluten. There is currently no gluten-free version of Landlord, though there may be in the future. Greene King has started to brew gluten-free versions of its most popular beers.
According to the website, none of the beers brewed at Timothy Taylor can be classified as vegan. They all use isinglass finings to clarify the beer and remove sediment. Check out my article on vegan beers to learn more about isinglass.
I really like Timothy Taylor’s Landlord, but it isn’t the most exciting beer in the world. It’s almost always well kept, has a fine taste, and is a great session beer. There are many beers similar to it, but most beer drinkers would rank Landlord in their top 5 or even top 1.
Fuller’s ESB is a great shout for a similar beer. Then you’ve got Old Speckled Hen, Marston’s EPA, Samuel Smith’s Organic Pale Ale, or Wild Hare Pale Ale from Bath Ales. You’ve also got Abbott Ale, Hobgoblin, Doom Bar, St Austell Tribute, and Fuller’s London Pride.

While England may not have the international acclaim of Germany or Belgium when it comes to beer, I genuinely believe that our beer culture is massively underrated. Check out my article on the subject to see what I mean.
