"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."

Rerate: on-board BA 17 LHR-SIN Quite a nice beer to have available in economy class. I was always interested to rate a beer on board an aircraft to see what difference the lower air pressure would make to the aroma, palate and flavour. Well, the result is that maybe the head doesnít last as long and the aroma and flavour are maybe a touch fuller (ha!) than before. It certainly makes a pleasant change from the regular swill they usually provide on planes.
First Rated 5/11/2002 3.2 Rich clear orange brown colour with light beige head. Fragrant floral hops with stronger malt and caramel overtones. Smooth and big bodied with yeasty, bitter sweet flavour and softer slightly sweeter but satisfying finish.

Not huge flavor, but still good. Itís drinkable, and thatís all that really matters.

winkle (476) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - AUG 25, 2002
Good copper colour, lightly carbonated mild caramel flavour with hints of honey, interesting combo of hops with a hoppy drish finish. Not a bad session beer

SpaceMonkey (182) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 14, 2002
It pours a beautiful clear copper with a frothy head that laces down gently, whiffing a subtle spicy sweetness. Way in the background, I taste woody pumpkin pie with a hint of bitter. Mmm...very mild caramel goodness. This doesnít bite, it just wanders around your tongue for a while. This beer is a fairly mild pale ale that goes down easy, perhaps too easy.

softale (188) - Michigan, USA - AUG 13, 2002
Nice amber color. Lightly roasted malts give this beer a breadlike quality. Iíve heard people refer to this as "liquid bread" and that is pretty accurate. Bitterness is kept fairly low due to this beerís maltiness. Very easy to drink.

KingPinHead (390) - Des Moines, Washington, USA - AUG 7, 2002
Fairly light malty-sweet aroma. Color is the very definition of íamberí---head a bit lighter than average, but with nice lacing. Flavors are all subtle and move and mix together around the palate. Malt is concurrently mildly roasty and sweet, while hops are mellow but not silent and add nicely to the well-rounded finish. Body is just right for this style...The real strength of this brew is the fine balance--all elements are ísimpaticoí---There is nothing spectacular about this offering--it is just a good all-round performer.

proc (342) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - AUG 5, 2002
An interesting Pale. Reminded me alot of Bass, but without that ímetallicí taste Bass is known for. Fullerís puts out some fine beers and this is quite good as well. Pours out to a golden/amber color, with a light aroma. Slight hop taste that is in no way overwhelming with a slight taste of caramel. Very easy to drink.

Admiral (524) - Schnecksville, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 3, 2002
This is better than the bottled ESB. Balance is the word here, and it makes a good marinade for pork, augmented with Maille coarse-ground Dijon mustard and some garlic.

Always trust Fullers for consistently good beers. London Pride is, if you donít know, a classic bitter. Well balanced malts and hops, nothing unusual, just a good example of a bitter.

Very impressed with the Fullers line so far - nice big bottles that actually hold good beer! I hate getting a giant bottle of something and then it tastes terrible. This pale is quite good, but not the best Iíve had. Great Lakes still has them beat.
