NOTE: Most Fuller’s draught beer in the US is served from keg, not cask so US ratings for draught Chiswick should generally be placed under the bottle/keg listing.

GBBF Champion Beer 1989.
Slight change of recipe in 1999.
Chiswick Bitter is Fuller’s popular session strength ale, which derives its name from the area of London where Fuller’s 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, Fuller’s is the only brewery in England whose top three brands have won this award: a fitting testament to the skill and dedication of the Fuller’s brewers!

AWS9 (463) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 17, 2014
Cask. Decent light amber brown pour. Quite light, mild citrus. General thinness. Touch of caramel sweetness. No hops to report... doesn’t exactly go down "smooth", as there’s a slight astringency to it. Pure meh.

Drack denna på en QPR-pub i London. Den fungerade som en bra förematchöl men ingen öl att sitta och njuta av.
