3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask conditioned: The beer pours a light copper color, with a small white head. There was a medium nose of hops and malts. Taste had ssome hints of caramel to it. Fairly good presence of hops and malts to the tasste. Definite malt finish. A little hoppier than most of the other cask's that I had in London. Overall, Pretty good!

UPDATED: AUG 4, 2003 I found London Pride to be a decent ale, this beer has a butterscotch aroma, small head, heavily hopped and bitter flavor. I think it would be better on draft.That’s the reason I love trading, you can ship a 30-pound box of 12-20 beers for less than $20. There are not only the monetary rewards, but you also meet and make some cool friends at the same time. It just seemed a bit dull to me, it didn’t, “Make me randy baby!”

Nice amber colour. Mute aroma of malts with a thin head. Nice light hops.Goes great with turkey meat pie... however I could see it with fish and chips.

Clear copper color, thin creamy head. Similar aroma to the ESB with a bit of smoke, a bit of cheese and some roastiness. A mix of cheesy notes and bitter hops flavor, smooth palate, a bit mor bitter than the ESB.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light amber color,medium white head with some staying power.Malty sweet aroma,hoppy with some hints of fruit and spice as well.The taste was malty mildly hopped with a slight metallic taste in the beginning.The hops and spice do make a mild appearance but not as much as i was hopeing for.the after taste is bread like with a slight hoppiness to it.Not bad but i think the ESB is better then this one this one is just a little thin on flavor for me.Still it's very drinkable.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Has a nice amber color with little carbonation and a light hop smell. Taste light malt and finishes with a well balanced hop flavor. Overall a fine pale ale, but I like the BBC version better.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cloudy orange hue, almost no head. Hoppy nose with hint a wildflowers and citrus. Malt is noticeable but it's really the hops which get your attention. Wheat bread aftertaste which the hops cut through. A good standard bitter.

UPDATED: SEP 13, 2004 The real reason why you should fly BA instead of Qantas. From the can at 10,000m it is still quite nice, but on arrival a pint of this is just what you need, even at 6am. Rich coppery hue that is well supported by a complex blend of malts and the distinctive UK hop varieties. The best pommy brew in my book, I smile even though it is not candid CAMRA
