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

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 (10386) - 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.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 29, 2004
Dark bronze color, medium amber at the edges, with a nice 3/4" fluffy white head. Aromatics are soft, creamy, herbal, with a touch of spice, and a little hint of fruit, with a hint of apple and citrus. Assertive hoppy bite upfront on the palate, which slowly, softly subsides. A touch of copper exists as well. Texture and body are mild, with a good, lasting finish. For a "pub ale", quite good. Not the sort of brew that Iíd write a sonnet upon. It tastes good, but not enough to divert your attention from the dartboard. This exists solidly between their ESB and IPA. And thatís OK.

JonMoore (1875) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2004
Cask, at the Black Lion & French Horn, Pollen Street, London. Copper coloured with good sized white head. Fruity, malty aroma. Taste of sweet malt and light hops. Medium bodied. Very drinkable.

rhapsouldize (174) - Phoenixville, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 24, 2004
Copper color with an extremely thin beige head. Fruity, somewhat wheaty aroma. Thin-bodied. Bitter and malty in flavor and finish. Overall, just okay. I prefer the E.S.B.

Hansen (6768) - Assentoft, DENMARK - AUG 24, 2004
Fine bitterness, but the malt is too weak. Dark yellow, medium head. Thin, watery. Fullers can make better beers.

haddonsman (1234) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2004
Bottled, 4.7% Candied fruit and malts in the soft sweet nose, deep amber body with rapidly diminishing head. Satisfying crunch in the taste, those ever so sweet fruits combined with a hoppy nip and a restrained maltness in the finish. Oft derided oop north, this isnít actualy bad. In fact, itís good. Iím off to dat dare Lundun tomorrow so feel duty bound to try on draught. Outstanding? Indeed!

DarkStar22769 (100) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 21, 2004
Bottled; a head that slowly dissipates within 3 or so minutes; suddy amber colour, good clarity. The aroma is malty and subtle; very little overpowers in the nose of this ale. Some hints of citrus. The palate is crisp and begins full. Fills the front of the mouth but has a bitterness that completes the swallow. The ale has a wonderful flavour balance between malt and hop with neither subduing the other. A good session beer.
