Ever write down your reviews and then lose them? I was rating this while drinking it on the site the other nite and my service (or RB, not sure which) timed out. And I was kinda drunk so I just sorta went to sleep and forgot about it. Now I could make something up like "I really loved the fruity esters" or "it was very plummy and smelled of horse-urine soaked smoked arrugula" with a "velvety-smooth creamy sticky sex mouthfeel mmm love to lick, lick, lick it up" but that would be just silly 'cuz I can't really remember all that well. It was good. Isn't that enough?

3fourths (7855) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 20, 2003
Head is quite small, with large bubbles. Aroma is of honey and amaretto; maybe a little peach or other fruit. Feel inside the mouth goes as follows: 1)sweet, 2)then tart and strong, 3)then mellow and tart, and 4)finally theres this awful aftertaste of lemon tea. Overall too thin, and not nearly enough bitterness to satisfy me.

RobBestwick (583) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 17, 2003
pleasant mild hoppy aroma, pours with a copper/reddish hue, medium sized head leaving a little lacing, hops dominate initially followed by wood and nutty tones with quite a dry finish, another good offering from Fullers

FezMonkey (268) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - FEB 16, 2003
Head is small and off-white color. Body is medium amber. Lightly hoppy (flowers). Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately bitter. Finish is moderately bitter, lightly acidic. Medium body, watery texture, soft carbonation.

Nice aroma and color start this one off. The official style of this one is "bitter" though Fullers wants to call it a Pale. It seems to be somewhere in between. Less bitter than the Fullers ESB, but a little more than most English pales. The flavor is pretty good on this one, with some hoppiness and a slight "crispness" to it. An all around good beer!

(from the bottle) Nice copper-brown color. Small head. Light malt aroma. Woody/nutty flavor with a faint but distinct hops background.

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 28, 2003
Nice full brown colour and the taste is nutty and sweet with a hint of wood. Not overly bitter finish but rather fruity. I will likely wait to try this on tap as I think it would make the beer taste much better. Still a great example of Brtish Ale.

Oristo (67) - Orinda, California, USA - JAN 27, 2003
Fullers yeast, it must be the yeast. Rich light tan head, long lasting and the body goes mostly through to the feel on the tongue. Great malty nose and flavor with those so British hops. I would love some on tap, in a Fullers pub, but this ain't bad.

Not bad, but not nearly as good as their porter. Pretty complex array of flavors.
