COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Regular.
This delicious, premium blonde ale from Fullerís is the perfect combination of unbeatable flavour and refreshment.
Brewed using a unique blend of malted barley and wheat for a delicious malty taste bursting with rich, biscuity flavours, Liberty hops are then added for a distinctive zesty character and fruity bite, whilst Saaz hops add a gentle bitter taste for a clean, refreshing finish.
In cask, Discovery is 3.9% ABV, while in bottles the strength is 4.5% ABV.
Discovery tastes great served chilled, and its light, refreshing character makes it a perfect accompaniment to many foods.

Flat and refreshing and not overly yeasty like some of its fellow British ales. The bitterness is not too flowery. A good gentle beer.

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - JAN 9, 2012
Cask at some pub in town. Gold, thick white head. There is something about Fullers, kind of soapy and malty that I like. Nice malt characteer, some fresh hops, pine. Itís nice this for an average English beer.

Cask @ Fullers. Nice head with good duration. Color is golden. Aroma and taste are malt, hops, fruits and flowers. Soft carbonated and full bodied. Oily.

Osprey87 (1946) - WALES - MAR 18, 2013
Dec 2012 - draught London Fleet St. May well have had it before. Very íBritishí flavoured beer in my books. Mild, light body with a bitter (but not astringent) finish. Certainly nice, but nothing to rave about.

Joeh (2049) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2006
Cask at the Bell, High Wycombe. Back up to join first place on the Fullerís list with Duff! Golden colour. Pale malt and a touch of fruit but generally not that full of flavour. Refreshing and clean tasting, this is similar to the Summer Ale. A good first step to real ale for a lager drinker.

bhensonb (11364) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 27, 2007
Cask at The Dove in Hammersmith. Nice malt and fruit aroma. Golden amber color with strong white head. Light fruity sweetness, finishes with malt and hop. Arguably light malt dominates.

thewolf (11205) - Kolding, DENMARK - APR 21, 2008
Cask @ Churchill Arms, Kensington, London.
Pours golden copper with almost no head, just some white bubbles on top. Aroma is wonderful, caramel, toffee and a nice fruity and flowery hoppiness. Surprisingly high carbonated for a cask ale. Flavour is lovely malty, chewy and sticky. Good dry aftertaste with a fruitiness to the hops.

yespr (31592) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - AUG 20, 2008
From cask at Charlies. Pours clear and golden yellow to orange with a small off-white head. Mild peachy hops aroma. Light tea like initial flavour with a mild peachy hops note. Vague apple note too. Light sweet accompanying the hops flavour. Lasting refreshing fruity flavour into the finish.
