For an American, this is pretty easy to drink. Kind of tastes like a Killianís. A good place to start when coming to England.

HenrikSoegaard (12653) - Randers, DENMARK - MAY 20, 2006
Bottle. Creamy white good mostly deminishing head. Moderate malty and hoppy aroma. OK flavor, average finish. Watery and lively carbonated. Nice beer but nothing special.

guzzler67 (1639) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - MAY 18, 2006
Copper appearance with a small, white head and sparce lacing. Caramel malt aroma with a faint note of butterscotch. Taste was fruity, mildly sweet, along with a toasty, biscuit-like flavor. Medium bodied, modestly carbonated with a fruity, short lived finish.

My favorite English soccer team--West Ham United, of Londonís East End--came up painfully short in the FA Cup final Saturday. It was a bitter loss, but also a day that left all Irons/Hammers supporters full of immense pride at their underdog sideís brave performance. Hence, it was a perfect day for Fullerís London Pride. This is such a classic example of its style, there really isnít much to say. Its caramel-malty aroma and golden copper-brown appearance are extremely inviting. Again true to style, its flavor and body are perhaps a little on the thin side, but extremely drinkable and balanced, with a straightforward hop bitterness slightly more assertive than the caramel malt background--although the maltiness becomes more noticeable as the beer warms. The only thing really limiting this style-defining beer is being served in a bottle; this refreshing, lightly carbonated, but deceptively flavorful session brew absolutely demands being served traditionally cask-conditioned.

pale ale my ass. i probably would give this beer a higher rating, but the fullers representative that gave me this was bashing american microbrewers for "not finishing the beermaking process" as they massively hop their beer. he was so snotty about it. and all iíd said was i prefer american hops to british ones (you know what i mean). anyways, a quality beer, but nothing impressive.

Bright amber color, with a frothy white head, faint caramelized malt, hint of grassiness, with a floral hop accent, with a grainy note in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a cookie and caramelized malts, grainy character, with some notes of nuttiness and fruitiness, with a floral hop dry accent, leading towards a faint malty and hop bitterness in the finish.

this is a beer that i used to love and still do like it. it can come in many different forms...cold cask is the best, of course. and one of my favorites when flying on virgin airlines. nice malty grainy beer with subtle hop fruit characters.

kimcgolf (872) - Dacula, Georgia, USA - APR 30, 2006
Poured from a 12 oz. bottle....rich amber color with a slight head, no remarkable appearance. A good beer, but I was expecting a lot more from Fullerís considering how much I enjoyed 1845. All and all, okay, and I will drink again, depending on other choices available, but will not seek this one out.

Bottle. Amber colour with a small white head. Fruity aroma with some hints of hops. Malty fruity flavor. Going over in a long hoppy bitter finish.

Bottle. I originally drank this from a can in a small drinking glass on British Airways and was absolutely disappointed. With a proper pour from a bottle, my opinion went up, but not substantially. The aroma and the flavor were both pleasing, but there was very little action to the palate. I found it to be a largely flat beer despite its attractive head. Another reviewer described it a buttery. That seems to work as well as any adjective I could think up. But I donít often have a thirst for a buttery beer.
