London Pride is the best example of why beers should not be served ice cold. This beer should always be relished at the proper English pub temperature so thatís itís mild yet subtle textures can be fully appreciated. Its aftertaste is almost sweet, which really distinguishes it from traditional bitter, yet it nonetheless stands as a fine example of the English brewers art.

49degrees (49) - British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 12, 2003
A very clear pouring ale. Iíve had this in the past on tap, but this time from the bottle (500ml - freshness dated best before Dec 5, 2003) and find it somewhat unappealing. Itís extremely clean and crisp, with a somewhat fruity aftertaste. Not quite as bitter as I would like from a traditional English bitter, but it does fit the bill. Quite a high level of carbination which keeps the head perky throughout the tasting. Pours with a big, rocky head before dispating with considerable lacing -- something that is consistent around the glass and makes the collar pop up consistently about 1/2" above the top of the beer itself.

fiulijn (13533) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 12, 2003
[Keg] Amber color, beautiful creamy head. Simple aroma. Better than the bottled version, of course, with some improved hop character, but still unimpressive, and pretty watery, only the palate is correct.

very odd brew,orange acidy taste and huge aftertaste as well, hand-pulled this is a n ale for someone looking for something different.

akinm (282) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 4, 2003
On tap: dark orange color. dense white head, withered away fairly quickly. the aroma is sweet and malty. the flavor is my favorite part, it is malty and very toffee like. a light hint of hops comes through but the toffee like malt is most definitely the winner here.

VENOM (941) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 4, 2003
Clear orange. Sticky, dense white head. Scattered carbonation. Mild buttery toffee aroma, toasted pale malts and soft hops. Mellow with a slick feel and low carbonation. Lovely mix of floral, grassy hops and toasted pale malts. Fairly dry. Medium light body. Light cherry skin fruitiness. Smooth and easy going. Finishes with a hint of bitter filberts. A quintessential, authentic version.

BŁckDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JAN 3, 2003
Light hops smell, mild pour with a little head. Nothing very complex in the flavor, not unique. Iíll pass on this one in the future.

spydog (75) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - JAN 2, 2003
Amber appearance with small head. Has that Fullerís taste. Easy to drink. Tremendous taste for such small ABV. Not really bitter, has a nutty subtle carmel taste. Excellent.

Uglyradio (791) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - DEC 21, 2002
Pours a clear amber color with a medium sized, off white head. Light, malty sweet aroma that has that typical Fullerís smeel to it. Nice, smooth malty flavor all the way through with just a hint of hops on the palate. Leaves a fair amount of lacing on the glass. Great English session beer.
