A very good bitter indeed, however, I much prefer Fullers ESB. This one tastes a little flat in comparison. Similar characteristics to ESB though. Another good session beer.

50 cl can, Shelburne. Copper colour, thin creamy head. Balanced hop nose, sweet caramel flavor. More carbonated in the can than tap as could be expected but a good rendition when one canít get to the UK.

Poured a copper colour with a small white head. A malty aroma and a bitter flavor. A pleasant, clean, watery finish to this drink, left me wanting more.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is the first beer that I drank in London. Truly a pleasent way to start off an excellent trip. Nice and bitter taste with a bite, but a pleasent one. Pale colour, but a lot of flavour with a nice and rich palate. Bitter ale is good and this is one of the better ones (also one with more alcohol than the others).

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle 50cl. POured clear dark copper amber with a smooth off-white head that diminishes with time. Sweet aroma of hops and malt, hints of oak and caramel. Complex flavour of predominantly warm malt and sharp hops, but with a oily citrus fruit hints on the roof of the mouth. Sharp oaky bitter in the finish. Oily yet agreeable palate. Brilliant example of a fine English bitter.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Perfect clear copper color with thin off white head. I love the bready-pale malt aroma of this beer. I really canít smell any hop aroma. Tastes much as it smells with bready and fresh pale malts. There is also just a hint of hops hiding behind the malts. Nice beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught. Pours light copper/yellow with a white head. Aroma is malty, a bit earthy, sweet, and with a hint of English-style hops. Flavor is similar, with maybe a bit of metallic finish. Overall a solid English ESB, although not quite as good as Fullerís other ESB, "Fullerís ESB".

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, Copper coloured beer with a thick white head, though this was probably as a result of careless pouring, as half of the head ended upon the table. Suprised that I hadnít rated this easy to get beer. Aroma was quite malty and hoppy which to be honest transferered itself rather convieniently over to the taste, good tasting beer which has a nice balance, good bitterness and is very drinkable hops are present throughout.
