DocLock (8376) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 29, 2004
Poured coppery, with ample head and lacing. Aromas of malt, toffee, caramel, and some hops and red wine. Tastes malty, slightly bitter, with some fruit, toffee/caramel, and a complex finish.

ontario102 (794) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 20, 2004
Displays a small, rocky, diminishin head; clear and sparkling body; notes of apple in the nose? citrusy/lemon hopping with a solid caramel and toffee malt base; pretty hoppy and dry; long bitter and dry finish.

Pailhead (5430) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - JUN 16, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 21, 2004 Bottle: Aroma is malty and fruity but not very strong. Pours a transparent orange with a small white head. Not a whole lot of flavor at the beginning of the taste. The bitter finish is where all the flavor lies. Some sweetness barely sneaks thru. As you drink, the sweetness begins to come thru more and more and the balance improves. 3.1 Re-rate: Virtually everything seems to be stronger and improverd this time. Stonger smell, stronger malt flavor. Hops don't seem to be as stong, but balance seems to have improved. 3.5

Beer Snob (501) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 15, 2004
Very nice. Golden brown with a mid-sized foamy head. The best part of this ale is its malty, mouth-watering aroma that has a touch of sourness to it. Taste is smooth - a touch too smooth for my taste - mild and pleasant. Having said that, I have to add that London Pride may be mild, but it has a nice body to it. Slight aftertaste and mild bitterness. A completely drinkable ale that passes the test of all good beers - itís gone before you know it.

tiggmtl (4545) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 15, 2004
Caramel and brown malt aroma with pleasant hop nose. Clear copper coloured with pillowy white head that recedes to cover with good strong lacing and plenty of visible carbonation. Maltiness dominates the flavour without being at all sweet. Nice brown malt flavour with decent balancing bitterness that never overpowers. Carbonation is playful on the tongue and body is fairly light. Definitely a thirst-quenching session-style bitter. If I could get this beer here, it would be a mainstay in my fridge. Bottle (4.7%). Thanks CapFlu.

500ml brown bottle 4.7%Vol. Poured a clear amber. White head with light carbonation.Some lacing. Nice caramel aroma with hops coming through at the end. Well balanced flavour-roasted barley and hops with bitter grapefruit finish. My regular brew in many London pubs.

Choos (661) - Taylors Hill, AUSTRALIA - JUN 10, 2004
Aroma is grassy and malty. Appearance is perfectly clear orange amber with a small head that leaves foamy lacing. Flavour is a bit corn syrupy with a decent amount of malt, a hint of orange and some nice hop. Flavour stays quite a while but gives way to distinct lasting bitterness. Quite thick.

Tessic (918) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 8, 2004
This ale is a dark amber colour with a coarse fizzy head. Slightly metallic scent over corn and sugar notes. Small amount of caramel in the nose. First sip was very nice with mild flavours of malt and a slight flowery taste. Lightly bitter finish and a smooth palate with lingering bitterness and caramel. Very good!

Malakin (469) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 6, 2004
Almost balanced malt and hops but a bit on the malty side. English, a bit musty, a bit earthy.

mds (2250) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 6, 2004
Amber in appearance with a nice-looking small head. Heavy malt aroma. This stuff is fairly balanced though I found it to be a little on the malty side. Overall, a great pint!
