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

Pasturised bottle, too many times. This is a medicore distant realitive to the cask version. Somehow it succeeds in being harshly carbonated yet feeling incredibly flat at the same time. Thereís nothing horrible about it, but no thanks.

UPDATED: MAR 9, 2007 Sept, 2002: Pasteurised Bottle Well balanced and with a satisfying mouthfeel. [2.8]
Sept 2004: Pasteurised bottle. Head to head with <a href=Beer-Ratings.asp?BeerID=5995&FanOfID=4383> Pedigree and <a href=Beer-Ratings.asp?BeerID=38723&FanOfID=4383> Fiddlerís Elbow Initial aroma is boiled cabbage and boiled sweets and co2. When the co2 has burnt off the aroma settles into minimal fruit and a touch of cardboard, palma violets and dried cow pat. Taste is fruity - orange spangles. Some toffee. Sweet palate. Minimal hops. Tastier than Fiddlerís Elbow. [2.8}
March, 2007 Tasted with Pedigree [2.5], Spitfire [3.0] and XB [2.6]. Chocolate notes - crystal malt? Hop finish. Fresh, vanilla oak aroma. Creamy chocolate flavour grows into the finish. Hop awareness all the way through - not strong, but present. Hop note lingers - a pleasant soft earthy bitterness. [2.8]

nice clarity with a sweet smell to it. The taste was floral and malty but had a crisp bitterness at the end to balance it out. mmmm, beer.

jasonp (1555) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - SEP 4, 2004
Pours a nice clear amber with an off white head. Aroma is malty, yeasty and somewhat reminscent of bisquits. Taste is of caramel malt, floral hops, earthiness and some butterscotch. Not that sweet, pretty bitter finish. Very nicely balanced. Mouthfeel is full, round and creamy. Great lacing and head retention. Not outstanding, but a quality brew.

Has a nice aroma to it. Has a slight aftertaste to it. Overall, it was pretty good and I would enjoy getting another.

Belly Full O Beer (57) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - SEP 3, 2004
Iíd be proud of this too! Nice deep golden colour, no head. Slightly bitter aftertaste, but still easy to drink. Enjoyed this one more and more through the glass.

A bit weaker than I prefer for a pale ale,but Iíll keep in mind itís not an APA or an IPA. Weak head, mild taste. More bitter at the end,so I guess it finishes well. Over all not a bad beer.

igel (196) - New Mexico, USA - SEP 2, 2004
Pours a nice head that is resilient (but diminishes quickly), and has a sticky lace. A copper color and a lively amount of CO2. Smell is like cider with some yeast and hops thrown in. Taste is smooth with a slight bite and some sweetness in the background. The mouth feel is smooth, yet also crisp. This beer has an exceptional balance of flavors for a pale ale. Quite drinkable.

bierkoning (10499) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - AUG 31, 2004
Tap, Cafť de Engel Oldenzaal. What has gone wrong with this beer? Almost everything. Very cloudy appearance. Sharp grapefruit aroma and flavor. Sharp and thin. The hop character, which obviously was there, is blown away by the citrus fruit. This beer shouldnít be like this, but the flavor is, strangely enough, OK.

wilkie (1208) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - AUG 30, 2004
Draught. Amber colored, very carbonated. Creamy, medium, tan head. Good retention. Maltiness in aroma--caramel. Definite strong caramel in hoppy bite to finish. Good beer.
