Pasteurised bottle, can and keg (4.1% in the UK, 4,7% for export).
Outstanding Premium Ale.
"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."
Michael Jackson 500 Classic Brews

Mmmmmmmm, malt. A very smooth, easy to drink beer. I particularly enjoyed the nice sweet malt finish to it. For an easy drinking beer, it doesnít get much better than this.

Itís not really a complex beer -- itís a rather malty bitter, and the more enjoyable because itís malty!

One of my favorites. Nice copper color with good head retention and lacing. Smooth, balanced flavor. A great English beer.

I had this in a bottle. It poured a large, creamy head, and left lace all the way down the glass.The color was a nice orange-brown. This is one of my favorite beers. Great with a sandwich and fries!

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2003 carmel like aroma arising from a golden color topped with a thin bubbly head, very malty flavor with some hops thrown in, but malts dominate if you ask me, I wouldn't call it astonishingly complex as the description notes, But I would say it has a pleasant carmel apple-like taste to it that is pretty pleasing,

Impressive beer, nice copper color with a fine malty caramel flavor with a nice hop finish.

Bottle. Nice bitter buterscotch aroma. A crisp, dry, slightly metallic, and watery beer with a little hop bite but nothing much else going for it.

UPDATED: NOV 22, 2013 I was really looking forward to this after reading reviews. I was disappointed in it to a certain extent(may be expecting too much). Donít get me wrong, I didnít dislike it, but it just thought something was lacking. Overall just slightly too íthiní a beer, for want of a better word. Iím off to buy and try some other Fullers stuff.

I have had much better. This beer isnít bad, but it isnít exactly amazing either. Nothing really sticks out. It just really simple.

I didnít think too highly of this one. I didnít notice anything to speak of outside the malt. It didnít seem very balanced. Perhaps its my balance that is out of whack, but I just didnít dig this one.
