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

Great ale that I got the chance to have on tap in London. Smooth and not too full-bodied. Better at cellar temperature, not ice cold. UPDATE: got it in the bottle and was still very impressed. A little stronger in the bottle, but the smoothness and lack of heaviness makes this my ideal session ale.

JK (4587) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - SEP 27, 2004
Same dark color. Less body than the pulled version. Flavor of malt, not as smooth as from the cask. Still at the top of by list for the style.

Bottle. Amber beer (just a little darkish) with a nice white head. A little caramel in the aroma. Smooth sweet tofee/malt. Light hops giving just a hint of bitterness at the end. Very easy to drink.

zach8270 (3519) - 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 (5385) - 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 (10579) - 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.
