Bottle. Nice amber colour, with a mild maltiness but i felt it did not match up to the draft version of it. Not enough mouthfeel. Note the bottle was left at room temperature for at least 4 months.

Excellent flavor with perfect balance between malt and hops. Earthy and sweet. however the watery mouthfeel and flatness take away much from the overall character. I enjoyed it much more on tap than in the bottle.

Belgian spicy-like aroma initially, tapers off quickly. Fruitiness, raisins and a slight mustiness follows. Pours a copper brown, nice thick creamy head. Light on the malt, sweet flavour. Refreshing finish with nice hop presence. Does what its supposed to do - a satisfying session ale. Drink up lads!

I'm really enjoying these English pale ales lately, the're usually very well-balanced and drinkable. London Pride is a great session beer with a moderate aroma, nice malty caramel flavor, and just enough hops to make it all come together. It may be a bit mild, but it's still a very well-done beer.

First good beer that I tried many moons ago. Honey colored, pours small white head, translucent. Aroma and flavor are dominated by malt, sweet and carmelly, bittering from the hops is there and somewhat balance the malt(not entirely). Dang gone I'm going to have to get to London again and have this one from the tap.

UPDATED: OCT 20, 2007 On tap at Britís pub before the ABR in 2004. Nothing wrong with this very subtle Bitter. It pours a slight amber color with an average head. The flavor is malty with some bitterness. We downed several of these for breakfast prior to the festival. My friend Dennis then shorted the bar tender 20 buck who chased us accross the street to the festival. The bar tender then told us sarcastically that we need to drink more. He was pissed and so were we. We proceeded to get more pissed as the afternoon went on. Oh yeah, the beer, I could drink this by the gallon.

Solid English pale. Nice balance in the flavor, with a bit of caramel malt, which is something I like to get just a hint of in a Pale Ale. Very easy to drink.

Bright, clear copper, no head. tarish walnut aroma. Taste of nutty malt , then a weird and unexpected metallic finish mixed with citrus hops. A slightly hollow mouthfeel.
