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

Mungo (2471) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 8, 2005 Bottle. Flavours are more distinct and complex (when compared with cask) with lots of earthy and caramel notes. In no way unpleasant but unexciting and the worst of the Fullers standard beers to my mind.

hershiser2 (1228) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - FEB 2, 2004
Nice amber ale with small, but fluffy head. It goes away quickly. Nice, slightly sweet summertime smell... very refreshing! Bittersweet taste, slightly floral, but a bit of a copper (taste your fingers after counting change) aftertaste. Nice mouthfeel. A bit thick and heavy to drink a lot of.

Wheatsheaf (104) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 29, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 21, 2004 Bottle. A copper-colored ale with a light, orangey hop and malt aroma. Light to medium body, but flavourful. Fruit and honey notes up front, with a drier, hoppier finish. A nice, English session ale that doesnít disappoint.

Britales (56) - Cape Charles, Virginia, USA - JAN 29, 2004
An almost perfect bitter! Great balance of hop and malt, a happy medium between a true session beer and a maltier one. Nice amber color and the flavor lingers on the palate for a lengthy time.A good Bitter to start with for those new to this style!

sayravai (4673) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 28, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 5, 2004 (Bottled) Amber/dark copper color; medium, diminishing head. Grassy, fruity, slightly meaty and flowery aroma. Very dry, pleasantly and, strongly hopped, reasonably malty flavor with some oak notes. Malty, dry and smoothly bitter finish. Oily, medium-bodied, low carbonated palate. A very enjoyable, well-balanced and quite full-bodied bitter. Complex hopping and easy to drink. Quite warming for the ABV.

SpringsLicker (3163) - Tennessee, USA - JAN 17, 2004
London Pride is an enjoyable bitter. This well balanced beer had a pleasing amber color but the head was hesitant. Over the tongue, it was smooth and well balanced with a good mouth feel. Nice dry finish. I'm sure this is even better on the other side of the pond, fresh and on cask in it's homeland.

OKBeer (1171) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JAN 14, 2004
Amber colour with a bit of a pink tint. Mostly diminishing frothy off-white head. Caramel and possibly some cardboard aroma. Initially watery and lightly sweet, finishes thicker and with a pleasant floral, but unfortunately somewhat metallic bitterness.

biermonk (265) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 12, 2004
On tap at Summits Wayside Tavern. Very nice beer. Poured a dark amber color with a nice fluffy head that left clinging laces. Flavor was heavily malted which lended a semi-sweet character that I really enjoyed. Malts were well balanced by the hops That were present towards the middle. Followed by amoderately dry finish. Good stuff.

Bottled at the Grey Lodge in Philly. Nothing to exciting about this one. Tasted what it should be.

The commercial description is correct, this Bitter is a "ideal session strength premium ale". Adequate bitterness, golden appearance and enough flavor to make it an fine session beer.
