Very malty, nutty, with lots of toffee and caramel. Fruits that go well with the maltiness. Mmm.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
My favorite English beer, very important to drink it young.
True afficionados drink it the day it is delivered - the publican may say it hasnít settled - ignore him and offer twice the usual price. When delivered it is bright, exciting the very elixir of life with hops whizzing around in the glass in the excited bubbles. It may look like a snow storm but the taste is out of this world. I have never met a publican that once persuaded to serve it on the day it is delivered is not hooked himself - they usually donít charge double the price you have offered to get them to serve it to you. Try this once and you too will be hooked!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Enjoyed at Llywelynís Pub in the Central West End from a Cask and served into an Imperial Pint Glass.
Appearance- Amber/Orange color with Finger length of head.
Smell- I can smell a ton of malt and fruit as well.
Taste- Malt taste, bitter, and almost can compare to a Hefeweizen.
Mouthfeel- Full Bodied ale and smooth throughout whole experience.
Drinkability- Great beer! Wouldnít go back to this beer necessarily but easy to drink and good beer to start the night on.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Served via cask dispense into a íFullers ESBí large ígobletí style glass at the William Webb Ellis, Twickenham, (Feb í12).
Pours a mid amber/copper colour with a small-ish frothy white head.
Toffee/biscuity nose along with a little grass, sweet malts and hops.
Wonderfully balanced ale with all manner of flavours combining and well integrated! Caramel, toffee, sweet malts, grains and a little citrus hop bringing up the rear! Sweet tasting, smooth and easy drinking!
Mouthfeel is spot on and leaves the palate with a little hop bitterness, a nice twist on a beer that is quite smooth and sweet during imbibing!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear Copper with a short head that is creamy. Smells of fruit, bread, toffee (a bit) and some hops. It tastes a very nicely balanced beer. Some fruit and citrus hops getting along quite nicely and a bit of that citrusy hops bitterness lingering at the end. Very smooth which may (DEF) have something to do with drinking it off the Cask. Overall a great standard British Bitter. I get this ove rthe Pride most of the time but think there are plenty of the style around that are just as good or better.

Had a sample from one of the guys who got some of the last pours before the cask kicked, thanks! Poured an amber body, Sweetish aroma, honey, lemon, honey, hoppy notes too. Sweet honeyish malty taste, with light aromatic hopiness. Nice enough!

Bright, reddish gold, looks rich and enticing; delicate orange perfume; malty, some toasty notes, orange marmalade, juicy stewed fruit, a tinge of alcohol; understated bitter hops in the finish; my only quibble is that Iíve never particularly liked the (in my experience) unique aftertaste - which I can only describe as akin to the aftermath of a beery burp (not that I would ever stoop to emitting such a thing); complex and satisfying overall.
