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

So this is supposed to be a pale ale? Well, it dosenít look or taste like one, but it is good nonetheless.

Pours a clear copper with a frothy white head that leaves a lacing on the glass. Scent is surprsingly malty with a modest hop presence. Taste is fairly complex with a good malt backbone and a rich variety of hop flavor. Very good, though perhaps not as good as their ESB. RERATE: Sorry, didnít fill out the overall impression section. First time thatís happened...

Bottle. Pours a light copper color. Aroma is rather malty, with a bit of a hoppy presence as well. Seems to be a bit malty up front. Hoppy kick as well. Seems to be pretty well balanced. Nice session beer.

pootzboy (1597) - Hawgville, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 27, 2004
500ml bottle: poured a decent copper-gold with a smallish tight cap. moderate carbonation...aromas of spice, apples some pine. prickly mouth feel from over carbonation for the style (IMHO)...Hop pronounced.... malts take a back seat but deliver a distinct sweet biscuit taste that is not overpowered by the well balanced pine, woody hops. A smooth and mildish character in a standard for the style.

On opening:sight "pop"in the bottle malt and some sweetness. on the pour:great colour,opaque gold,white head, huge lacing.The nose is mild..malt,fresh dough,and a tickle of sweetness. On the taste:This is a mild beer.Sweet malt,caramel,a very background flavour of wood,the middle you can feel the hops coming on,still it is sweet.the finish is sweet unless you are very patient,the the hops finally come through to give it a nice dry finish. Mild on the mouth,easy to drink,very good body for style,a real fine beer.

jcc83 (137) - Athens, Georgia, USA - OCT 19, 2004
Pours an attractive amber, with a substantial white head. Aroma resembles the hoppiness of an american pale mixed with the sweet maltiness of Fullerís ESB, and the flavor follows suit. Excellent crisp hop bitterness, beautifully balanced by sweet, toasty malts. Good substatial mouthfeel as well. I like it. A lot.

ToolHead (266) - KÝbenhavn, DENMARK - OCT 15, 2004
50 cl bottle. Served in St. Peterís glass. Clear reddish amber. Decent, off-white head. The aroma is nicely balanced between cookie-like malt and hoppy freshness. The taste is harmonious, with a solid malty background and a nice, hoppy (mint) bite. Pleasant, slightly bitter finish. Good drinkability.

Pours a dark amber color with little head. There is a malty taste. Not as good as from the cask

Bottle. Pours a clear deep amber color. No head to speak of and little lacing. Malty and floral hop notes in aroma. Near medium body, very smooth mouthfeel. Nice blends of malt flavors, hops pop in at the finish quite nicely, subtle. Decent.
