Almost, but not quite, as good as the cask version, but this means it can be enjoyed all over the world! A splendid Englsih bitter, if you are lucky you can even have one on British Airways flights! Available both in cans and in bottles.

yayforbeer (753) - Orange Park, Florida, USA - SEP 21, 2005
Clear amber/copper with a nice white head that stays put and laces. Served cool but not cold. Nice aroma of malt and caramel. Flavor is smooth malt, caramel, bread, and whiskey. Nice hoppy bitter finish. Tasty and enjoyable. Decent English bitter. Better than most. Wish I had a six, I could drink a few more of these.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 20, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 3, 2005 A Mes rate: A strange dusty and hoppy nose but reasonably inviting. Colour is a wonderful clear tan/red, shame about the head, it died to nothing almost instantly. Plenty of hops in the flavour with some bread and caramel in there too. Plus a little hint of orange on my second attempt. Reasonable hoppy finish. Standard English stuff as far as I am concerned but worth a try.

On draft at KClingers: True amber with a nice solid white creamy head. Caramel malt with an ample bitter edge. British goodness.

This is one of the best traditional British ales Iíve ever tasted. This is a little smoother (and less chemically) than Bass.

puzzl (3257) - New York, New York, USA - SEP 5, 2005
"Astonishingly complex" is a longshot if there ever was one. Aroma is a bit vegetably... got those british hops, ya know? Flavor has a dash of malt, even some chocolatiness, and a very mild, british-hoppy finish. Light on the tongue and drinkable but some flavors are a little off putting.

blankboy (6634) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 3, 2005
Bottle. Pours a clear, sparkling ruby with a large fizzy white head. Mild aroma and flavour are quite grainy along with some yeast, sweet malt and a little bit of hops (Personally I would prefer more hops but I understand that this is the style they are going for). Hops show up much more in the bitter aftertaste. Overall itís a little mild but still pretty tasty and enjoyable.

Hooker (467) - Coquitlam, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 1, 2005
Clear copper colour with thin off white head. Mild carmel malt nose. Mild carmel malt taste with slight alcohol hints. dry carmel malt finish.

SSSteve (3972) - - AUG 30, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 24, 2012 bottle. a much needed re-rate. most of the fullerís beers in fact. this one pours a clear amber/gold with small white head. nose is a bit light and malty. flavors have a typical english bitter hop and light pale malting. more carbonation than the esb and less sweetness, less fruitiness, less body, and more bitterness. still not my favorite fullers beer.

no aroma. amber color. bitter and bland. mild hops in finish. dry palate. definitly not Fullers best beer. 8/30/05 2/3/5/2/10

Bottled & canned. Nice rich, bown colour, fruity and nutty aroma. Sweet at first, quickly fading into some pleasant bitterness and a creamy finish. Good stuff.
