tjthresh (1867) - Greenfield, Indiana, USA - AUG 13, 2005
On tap at Barleyís. Notes of baked goods, oatmeal cookies, and light hops. Copper orange. Poured with no head. Little evidence of carbonation. Bready/biscuity caramel malts. Floral/perfumy hop flavor. At bit on the thin side, watery, with little carbonation. All said, this was a very ordinary beer.

HogTownHarry (6201) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 12, 2005
Bottle (500ml) Poured a very lively, bubbly, copper-gold with a large, creamy, foamy off-white head. Oodles of very tiny bubbles which lasted forever. Aroma is mild - a nice ESB with moderate roast malts, a little hop sting, a little candyish and a little fruity. Taste is surprisingly fairly bitter after the sweet nose, with a mixed citrus bitterness. The mouthfeel is very lively and a bit astringent - while this is a bit malty and mild, it still has a hoppy finish. Not as hop-tart as the ESB which Iíve had on cask in London a few times.

ChillCoat (1029) - Concord, California, USA - AUG 10, 2005
Bottled. Clear copper color with a frothy white head. Aromas of malt and oranges. Sweet malty flavor with notes of toffee and caramel.

trokini (1025) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 8, 2005
I donít understand brewers sometimes. This is a good beer, but their ESB is much better. Unsurprisingly, this beer is very similar to the ESB: same look, same head, similar aroma. But, the London Pride lacks the bittersweet bite of its cousin. This version is sweeter and malty, but without the hoppy finish. A good beer, but the ESB should be called the pride of London.

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - AUG 8, 2005
Bottle: Poured a clear amber color with an average sized creamy, off-white head that slowly diminished. The flavor had a nice balance of hops and malts with pine, citrus, and caramel all detected. The flavor was great, again with a well-balanced hop/malt mix. Light bitterness at the end. Medium body with lively carbonation. Another nice one from Fullerís.

scotty (1088) - SCOTLAND - AUG 6, 2005
Lovely gold/brown colour, head fades quickly though. What a FANTASTIC nose, bursts with fresh hoppy fruit and sweet malt...lovely. Palate is superbly balanced, clean and very refreshing, as it says on the label this is "outstanding". Definetely a premium ale, great brew. Tesco Galashiels.

SudsMcDuff (6834) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - AUG 6, 2005
This beer, when first opened...wow, the aroma was superior, and when poured the look and smell was justified when i took the first sip, nice clean solid bitter sweet taste, good, but on the lower end of some other fine fuller brews.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - AUG 5, 2005
Classic English bitter. Pours thin with a small head. Aroma is bitter hops and slightly caramelized malt. Palate is thin, but coats the tongue. Flavor is a tangible representation of the aroma. Great brew; really enjoyed this one.

1FastSTi (3344) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 2, 2005
Pours to a clean golden colored body with a thin white head that has decent sheet lacing. Tons of visible carbonation. The aroma has tons of sweet malts, dough, spicy hops. Very nice. The flavor is tea, lemon, sweet malts, nice light bitter hops. I donít know how this doesnít rate higher. Itís really smooth. This could be drank in the gallons. :) In fact, I wish Iíd have bought a 6 pack of this instead of a single. The palate is really smooth and slick but not watery. Medium bodied. I recommend trying this. Do it... Do it...

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - JUL 31, 2005
Light amber color with a thin sheen as a head. Aroma is pepper, sweet sugar and mint. Taste is almost like iced tea, with the leaves still in there. Hoppy but not my cup ío British tea.
