although this beer was light in body and aroma I really enjoyed it. A nice hoppy/malt balance with a smooth finish. The appearance was slightly lacking being that this did not have much of a head.

A really good beer. Certainly not near a stout and not as heavy as a lot of the UK beers. Kind fo an amber body. A good beer.

Amber body with a mid-sized frothy head. Aroma of grass, apples, flowers, and malt. Intense bitter and slightly burned flavour with a soft buttery finish and a lasting hoppy aftertaste.

500mL (which almost completely fit in my rediscovered T Ij glass). This one displays a dark caramel body with orange shades. Head is initially thin-medium, fairly diminishing. For some reason I thought this was an english strong ale, but this stroke as a bitter from the first sniff which had a good deal of earthy maltiness and a soft apples and hoppy oranges fruitiness. Mouthfeel is moderately carbonated, medium bodied. Good hop/malt balance in general on a toasted bread layer, but the taste had a floral aspect that seemed almost grainy, though fresh grain, I assume some would say nutty. Bitterness is gentle, zesty, peachy. Easy drinking simpleish bitter.

Another success from Fullers. Great big creamy white head on a beautiful orange-amber body. Malty sweet aromas lead to a nice hoppy flavour. Medium mouthfeel with a nice bitter edge to the finish. Solid.

So this is supposed to be a pale ale? Well, it dosenít look or taste like one, but it is good nonetheless.

Pours a clear copper with a frothy white head that leaves a lacing on the glass. Scent is surprsingly malty with a modest hop presence. Taste is fairly complex with a good malt backbone and a rich variety of hop flavor. Very good, though perhaps not as good as their ESB. RERATE: Sorry, didnít fill out the overall impression section. First time thatís happened...
