COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pasteurised bottle, can and keg (4.1% in the UK, 4,7% for export).

"London Pride is a smooth and astonishingly complex beer, which has a distinctive malty base complemented by a rich balance of well developed hop flavours from the Target, Challenger and Northdown varieties in the brew."
Michael Jackson 500 Classic Brews

zach8270 (3472) - Henrietta, New York, USA - SEP 23, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2008 [12 oz. bottle] Clear amber color with a puffy white head and good lacing. Very light aroma of caramel and possibly butterscotch. Crisp and sweet taste with a smooth hop and malt balance and a refreshing aftertaste that kind of tastes like apples. Good hints of caramel throughout. Quite tasty and refreshing.

Bottle @ Akkurat, Stockholm. Offical tasting with represetatives from the brewery.
Have had this many a times on cask. A favourable every-day cask beer. Obviously the cask is to be prefered. However the bottle is not bad. A nice touch of toffee/butterscotch.

jbrus (4992) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - SEP 19, 2004
Caramel aroma with a little butter. Amber color, off-white head, good lace. Light sweet, light caramel, light hops, bit neutral, little dry. Not complex or exceptional but nice to drink.

Canned. This canned version of FLPr is, compared to other ítinnedí ales(you know which) outstanding. No sign of metal here. Itís íalmostí as good as the cask one, although not as fresh and clean. Toffee, a bit buttery in texture, nicely malty and seemingly almost perfectly balanced bitterness.

egajdzis (5336) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 14, 2004
Draft, poured a light amber with a medium sized head and nice lacing. Sweet aroma and a malty caramel, slight hop bitterness in the taste. Overall, not what I was expecting, but a decent beer.

imdownthepub (10243) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2004
Bottled, pasteurised. Amber orange with white, sl fizzed head. I am surprised that this is listed seperately from the cask. A little too carbonated for my taste, malty with a toffee, caramel background. Slightly harsh on the hops, but nevertheless drinkable. I prefer the cask conditioned though (when it is kept well)

Sampled from 500ml brown bottle. Poured amber-orange with a 1cm light tan head. Lacing good. Aroma of malt and floral hops. Some caramel sweetness, finishes crisply with a nice hop aftertaste.

Joeh (2038) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - SEP 10, 2004
Pasturised bottle, too many times. This is a medicore distant realitive to the cask version. Somehow it succeeds in being harshly carbonated yet feeling incredibly flat at the same time. Thereís nothing horrible about it, but no thanks.

UPDATED: MAR 9, 2007 Sept, 2002: Pasteurised Bottle Well balanced and with a satisfying mouthfeel. [2.8]
Sept 2004: Pasteurised bottle. Head to head with <a href=Beer-Ratings.asp?BeerID=5995&FanOfID=4383> Pedigree and <a href=Beer-Ratings.asp?BeerID=38723&FanOfID=4383> Fiddlerís Elbow Initial aroma is boiled cabbage and boiled sweets and co2. When the co2 has burnt off the aroma settles into minimal fruit and a touch of cardboard, palma violets and dried cow pat. Taste is fruity - orange spangles. Some toffee. Sweet palate. Minimal hops. Tastier than Fiddlerís Elbow. [2.8}
March, 2007 Tasted with Pedigree [2.5], Spitfire [3.0] and XB [2.6]. Chocolate notes - crystal malt? Hop finish. Fresh, vanilla oak aroma. Creamy chocolate flavour grows into the finish. Hop awareness all the way through - not strong, but present. Hop note lingers - a pleasant soft earthy bitterness. [2.8]

nice clarity with a sweet smell to it. The taste was floral and malty but had a crisp bitterness at the end to balance it out. mmmm, beer.
