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

bluevegie (3053) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 15, 2004
Light amber/straw colour with a medium size head. Little spice and maybe some malt on the nose. No real or big flavours coming through but for its style this beer is quite good. Nice light bitterness mixes with a touch of honey and maybe a bit nutty. Long finish. Cheers!

Clear amber with a small beige head. Malt aroma. Flavor of caramel malt and butterscotch. Bitter finish.

pineypower (2509) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - MAY 8, 2004
Bottle..A clear amber color with a nice head. The aroma is spicy with notes of vanilla and toffee. It has a good complex malty taste with notes of vanilla. The finish is somewhat bitter, which complements the beer very well. To me this is a much better, less common bass.

hopscotch (9161) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 3, 2004
Sparkling clear, amber ale with a small, creamy, white head. Butterscotch and very light perfume in the aroma. Nice, malty flavor with a note of vanilla. Well-bittered for balance. Medium-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Short, malty, bitter-sweet finish with only a pinch of salt thrown into the kettle. A bit on the light side, but satisfying as a good ESB should be. Left me wanting another.

IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - APR 19, 2004
Bottle. Clear amber, white head. Rich malt, toffee, a bit of caramel and some toast. Hops are there, but underneath it all. Medium body, light bitter finish. Enjoyable.

Gorbalev (2924) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 14, 2004
Bottled, 4.7%. Poured nice amber colour, small head with pleasing, but subtle spicy and fruity aroma. Body was good malty base, typical of the style but of a seemingly higher quality. Nice slightly bitter finish that gets better once you’ve finished. Very drinkable session ale – I hadn’t tasted this in a couple of years and I forgot how much I enjoyed it – more please!

Indra (2617) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - APR 13, 2004
Bottled version. Toffeeish, biscuity and lightly toasty malt aroma, some light, fruity, herbal hops appear once the beer warms sufficiently. Medium copper color, clear, with a slight, fine head. Flavor is initally malty and sweet but has a pleasant influx of bitterness about midpoint that gradually increases all the way to the finish. Medium-full body. Good balance, highly drinkable.

mullet (849) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - APR 10, 2004
Pretty one-dimensional malty aroma typical of bottled English beers that travel to these parts - honey, toffee, biscuits, etc. but pretty boring. Nice, but slightly flabby, malty flavour with a really nice dry, bitter finish. Some apricot in there at some stage. Pretty full body for the style/gravity, nice low carbonation. Decent head retention and excellent copper colour. I don't think having it from a bottle really does it justice but I won't be having it on cask any time soon :(

jeffc666 (1984) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - APR 6, 2004
Clear amber body, foamy lasting off-white head. The aroma is mainly malty, smells like a Fuller's! Flavors are malt sweetness up front then a good dose of hops. Decent beer but it does not really standout in any way. Drinkable though. From what I recollect I remember enjoying more on cask.

Alcoholist (570) - Peoria, Illinois, USA - MAR 28, 2004
Deep amber in colour, moderate head, nice lacing. Nose is malty. Flavour is malt and hops well balanced and slightly bitter. Drinkable and quite good.
