Very good brew. Light amber color. Good white lasting head. Sorta weak hoppy, fruity aroma. Slightly bitter flavor. More flavors come out in this beer than expected. Malty, fruity taste. Good hops.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(18.6 oz bottle) This is fairly complex beer, undergoing significant changes in the flavor; It starts out very woody and dry, becoming fruity and malty, and then finishing with a nice smokiness and a moderate bitterness, progressively becoming sweeter in each stage, but still only moderately so, and never sugary; The nose is strongly woody, fruity, and mildly malty; Nice, soft, medium to full bodied palate; Copper in color and slightly hazy; Off-white head is smallish on the pour and fades to a thin sheen on top, and bubbly around the edge of the glass

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: FEB 4, 2006 Pride pours a clear dark ruby red color with a lasting off-white head. The nose is hoppy and a bit fruity, but not very strong. The hops are very distinct giving the beer a dry fruity sweetness. I think of cherries at first. Then a nice bitterness hits, followed by a trailing off aftertaste of malts. As good as expected.

3.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUL 17, 2004 Very good on tap at Beer Bistro. Amber color, not positive in aroma. Just great UK style generous hopped ale with balanced malt. Bitter yet easy to drink. A bit of yeast for me here in bitter finish. Interesting complex mouthfeel. Also tried in bottle where more bitter and more toffee biscuit sweetness.

Poured coppery, with ample head and lacing. Aromas of malt, toffee, caramel, and some hops and red wine. Tastes malty, slightly bitter, with some fruit, toffee/caramel, and a complex finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: OCT 21, 2004 Bottle: Aroma is malty and fruity but not very strong. Pours a transparent orange with a small white head. Not a whole lot of flavor at the beginning of the taste. The bitter finish is where all the flavor lies. Some sweetness barely sneaks thru. As you drink, the sweetness begins to come thru more and more and the balance improves. 3.1
Re-rate: Virtually everything seems to be stronger and improverd this time. Stonger smell, stronger malt flavor. Hops don't seem to be as stong, but balance seems to have improved. 3.5

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very nice. Golden brown with a mid-sized foamy head. The best part of this ale is its malty, mouth-watering aroma that has a touch of sourness to it. Taste is smooth - a touch too smooth for my taste - mild and pleasant. Having said that, I have to add that London Pride may be mild, but it has a nice body to it. Slight aftertaste and mild bitterness.
A completely drinkable ale that passes the test of all good beers - itís gone before you know it.
