Pasteurised bottle, can and keg (4.1% in the UK, 4,7% for export).

"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."

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.

Clear amber color. No head at all. Faint aroma. Kind of dry bitter taste but nothing to write home about. I guess the only good Fullers is their Porter...which is oh so good. The London Pride was just OK.

dhlesq (233) - Thousand Oaks, California, USA - DEC 31, 2003
Very little aroma discernable, though I do sense a hint of caramel or malt. Beautiful copper color with a slightly frothy head and wonderful lacing. Appropriate pale ale flavor well-balanced between caramel, malt, and hops. Good mouthfeel for a pale ale, certainly present and textured but not overwhelming or chewy. All in all an excellent representation.

Not much nose. Taste was like a burnt bitterness. not much going on at all.

brownaler (378) - Topsail Beach, North Carolina, USA - DEC 30, 2003
A pretty weak appempt from fullers. Almost no flavor in the front and has a sour finish I didn't care for. Very thin.

Very clear medium copper brew. Mild flavor. Smooth and nutty. Good session glass.

drismyhero (815) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - DEC 12, 2003
This has a strongly hopped aroma that is harldy captured in the flavor - although every ounce of yeast in the nose came through just fine, along with a whopping honey malt flavor. This is a wonderfully complex pale, rather interesting contrast to all of the NW pales around here.
