3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: FEB 13, 2006 This was an immensely complicate beer, when i opened it, it the aroma was like a tin of baked beans, this left slowly like the head and left a beer unlike any i have had to date, sweet like a barley wine, but malt in there, yet not burnt, and then at the finish when u think thats it, the hops the brilliant hops really great, i should rate this higher if i hadnt smelt the beans, but alroun great great beer.
Try it, one of the best british iv had anyway.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Big aroma of oranges, caramel, molasses, alcohol, dried fruits, and hops. Deep orange and amber color with a minimal but sturdy head. Sweet, caramel malts, with dried fruits, orange, cherry, a touch of tobacco, alcohol and just enough hops to keep it from cloying. Nice residual sugars, tasting like molasses. Nice balance, sweet but not overly so. Great winter warmer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Frederikshavn.
Ruby beer, fruity aroma. Rich, maly, vinous. Sour cherries, redcurrants. Quite complex, but not as outstanding as the cask version.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at home, from Waitrose Sunningdale, 16/02/13.
Pours an almost clear dark golden with a thin white head that vamooshes edgeward allied to evidence of carbonation in the form of bubbles.
Nose carries caramel, candle wax, sweet sugars, berry fruits, touch of wood, honey.
Taste comprises sweet sugars, rich caramel notes, dark ripe orange, citrus tones, touch of booze.
Medium bodied with bite, moderate carbonation, dryish sweet finish. Carbonation flattens and improves over time.
Ok but to be honest Iíd rather drink standard pride any day ! Have had this on cask in the past and seem to remember it being better than this ! Need to revisit said version! Came across more so as a barley wine to me in terms of style!

I agree with person who said it was too strong for its own good, i also sample this at the brewery and wasnít totally impressed, lacked a bit of balance or something.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled 500ml. - from the London Pride store in Ljubljana, shared with Marko.
Clear cooper coloured, small off-white head that went away slowly, sweet candy (sugary) nose. Sweet malty, weak hoppy and too exposed fruity taste. Also quite alcoholic. Alcoholic finish with hint of prunes. Another overrated Fullers.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Brilliant grassy and pine hop aroma.
Golden brown colour, low on carbonation, foamy head.
Sherry and crystal malt flavors are in good balance to the hops, very slight alcohol burn in aftertaste.
Fullbodied, nourishing and satisfying.
