"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."

LordBurnden (3) - London, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2005 does not count
OK I am biassed, I live in Chiswick, but this beer is just so scrummy you cannot resist it. As a Northern Englishman I had never tasted caramel style beers like this when I moved to London - I was blown away. The bottled & can versions are a ghost of the draught.

Copper and flat-colored in the glass, with a diminishing white head and small bead. Aromas are faitly of wheat bread, oatmeal, some orange. Taste follows suit, with a balanced hop approach which gives way to rather plain malts. Palate is a different story. Where some say thin or watery, I say delicate. Notice the long finish and the residual bitterness and caramel malts. They are faint, but there. A solid and drinkable pale ale that I admit could be better.

tjthresh (1867) - Greenfield, Indiana, USA - AUG 13, 2005
On tap at Barleyís. Notes of baked goods, oatmeal cookies, and light hops. Copper orange. Poured with no head. Little evidence of carbonation. Bready/biscuity caramel malts. Floral/perfumy hop flavor. At bit on the thin side, watery, with little carbonation. All said, this was a very ordinary beer.

HogTownHarry (6302) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 12, 2005
Bottle (500ml) Poured a very lively, bubbly, copper-gold with a large, creamy, foamy off-white head. Oodles of very tiny bubbles which lasted forever. Aroma is mild - a nice ESB with moderate roast malts, a little hop sting, a little candyish and a little fruity. Taste is surprisingly fairly bitter after the sweet nose, with a mixed citrus bitterness. The mouthfeel is very lively and a bit astringent - while this is a bit malty and mild, it still has a hoppy finish. Not as hop-tart as the ESB which Iíve had on cask in London a few times.

I donít understand brewers sometimes. This is a good beer, but their ESB is much better. Unsurprisingly, this beer is very similar to the ESB: same look, same head, similar aroma. But, the London Pride lacks the bittersweet bite of its cousin. This version is sweeter and malty, but without the hoppy finish. A good beer, but the ESB should be called the pride of London.
