This beer, when first opened...wow, the aroma was superior, and when poured the look and smell was justified when i took the first sip, nice clean solid bitter sweet taste, good, but on the lower end of some other fine fuller brews.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - AUG 5, 2005
Classic English bitter. Pours thin with a small head. Aroma is bitter hops and slightly caramelized malt. Palate is thin, but coats the tongue. Flavor is a tangible representation of the aroma. Great brew; really enjoyed this one.

1FastSTi (3360) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 2, 2005
Pours to a clean golden colored body with a thin white head that has decent sheet lacing. Tons of visible carbonation. The aroma has tons of sweet malts, dough, spicy hops. Very nice. The flavor is tea, lemon, sweet malts, nice light bitter hops. I donít know how this doesnít rate higher. Itís really smooth. This could be drank in the gallons. :) In fact, I wish Iíd have bought a 6 pack of this instead of a single. The palate is really smooth and slick but not watery. Medium bodied. I recommend trying this. Do it... Do it...

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - JUL 31, 2005
Light amber color with a thin sheen as a head. Aroma is pepper, sweet sugar and mint. Taste is almost like iced tea, with the leaves still in there. Hoppy but not my cup ío British tea.

TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUL 30, 2005
Amber with thin off-white head. Aroma of flowery, spicy hops. Toasty malt taste with floral malt backbone. Donít know that Iíd say it is astonishingly complex. Pretty good, but not exceptional.

CampbellWilson (533) - SCOTLAND - JUL 27, 2005
Bottle from Sainsburyís. This wasnít nearly as good in bottle as on Draught. Copper with diminishing fizzy head. Aroma of toasty malt, wet cardboard, earthy hops. Little bit sweeter than I feel it should be (as opposed to cask version). Finishes minerally with a little hoppy bitterness (but not enough).

Basic bitter-style ale...good on tap when youíre walking through Soho in London and youíre thirsty!

turbothy (1141) - Bonn, GERMANY - JUL 20, 2005
Pours a dark copper. Hoppy, briny aroma. Hops and salt and nuts in the flavour. Nice bittersweet-ness in the finale. Good session beer.

SDalkoholic (2331) - Linda Vista, California, USA - JUL 13, 2005
Weak in its aroma with barely any hop shining through. Tilted more to the dark brass gold color and tiny amount of head. The bottle has it listed as pale ale but after the first inital sip i knew it was in the ESB style because of its honey and sweet malt character along with a bitter hop bite. Average and nothing extraordinary. I still donít understand what the big fuss about Fullerís beer is all about it.

theacelatrain (262) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 12, 2005
On tap - chilled, not cold. Pours a deep amber with minimal soft, white head. Warm, beckoning aroma of sweet, buttery malts. Drips over the tongue like a hot buttered scone; a hint of sweetness with a dry finish that says, "go on, have some more." Move over, stout - thereís a new beer at the breakfast table.
