"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."

(12.31.05) One pint, 0.9 fl oz brown bottle purchased from DiCarloís, Mundelein IL. Clear amber ale having a small diminishing head with spare lacing. Soft carbonation. Very faint sweet malt aroma. Medium bodied that starts dry with light malt sweetness and toffee and hop flavor. Finishes dry. A decent session beer.

Nice, thick, creamy, full head. Old copper color. Malty, some hop bite. This is infinitely better from a cask and finitely better from a fresh keg. Had this 2 nights ago from a bottle at Bodega downtown La Crosse.

Cant taste anything else than a harsh bitterness, i wanted to throw the contents down the drain, but you dont waste beer like that, so now i know this particular ESB is not for me.

Amber-caramel in colour with medium carbonation. Strong toffee aromas with some fruit in the background. I can recognize the Challenger hops in this one, as I often use them in my homebrewed bitters. Caramel malts dominate the palate, with a clean bittering quality providing some balance. Not really enough hop contribution in the flavor department, but a a solid bitter nonetheless. Thanks Lubiere.

This beer is unlike anything Iíve ever had, and itís quite enjoyable, although there are certain things I donít like about it. Aroma is not all that pleasant: almost corn-syrup-like, subdued, funky malt. However the flavour really explodes: it has some bite and I really like the hops: the hop aroma evolves in a complex way when you drink it. I donít really like the malt in this beer (it tastes like corn and is a bit funky), but, it gets covered up by the hops so itís still drinkable. I wouldnít exactly call this smooth; the hops are complex, the malt isnít. What is wrong with the malt in this beer? Ahh...anyway. Interesting and I enjoyed it and Iím glad I tried it although Iíll probably not get it again.

Poured a nice dark amber color. Aromas of caramel, fruit, and spice. Flavor is medium sweet with a nice hop bite.

(Bottle 50 cl) Beautiful amber with a handsome but dissipating head. Malty character with some caramel. Lovely aromatic and very floral hopping. Great and very easy drinking. 140102

Little aroma, clear amber color, and excellent hops flavor. Slightly sweet, but well-balanced overall. Excellent ale!
