GBBF Champion Beer 1989.
Slight change of recipe in 1999.
Chiswick Bitter is Fullerís popular session strength ale, which derives its name from the area of London where Fullerís is based. This lower strength beer is held in high regard across the South East of England and, like its stablemates London Pride and ESB, has won the prestigious CAMRA Great British Beer Festival, Beer of the Year award, in 1989. In fact, Fullerís is the only brewery in England whose top three brands have won this award: a fitting testament to the skill and dedication of the Fullerís brewers!

Rated from memory a couple of days later: had the trio of parti-gyle beers at a Fuller?s pub. Unsurprisingly, a lovely beer. Very simple and balanced, but for a 70+ year old beer it has quite a strong hop presence, best described as floral. It?s pale and weak, but the Fuller?s yeast leaves enough residual sugar for a rounded, malty body. I will seek this out again.

Cimbasso (234) - - OCT 29, 2014
Sampled from the cask at The Ship in Borough, a Fullerís pub.The colour is a darkish gold, with a quickly fading white head. Quite aromatic with scents of biscuity malts and fruity hops. Light-bodied, but the strong malt and hop flavours give it plenty of character. The malt taste is quite sweet, but the finish is pleasingly bitter. A classic lower-strength beer, this develops great flavours when served from the cask, and is ideal for everyday drinking.

GSAP (525) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 1, 2014
Sinaasappelsap is voornaamste aroma element. De smaak is licht IPA, maar stuk wateriger, maar niet verkeerd. Schuim is lekker klef en blijft plakken. Snel doordrinken anders wordt het bier erg laf.
