It's a light copper color, very clear also. A medium head forms and has a short duration, the only reason I didn't give all 5's. A slight film is all I had for most of the glass and no lacing. Mellow and calming effects please the nasal passages with sweet malts and just a smidgeon of happy hops. I am stunned at how smooth and drinkable this beer is. Every sip becomes larger and larger as I try to have as much of this luscious fluid touch my tastebuds. There is no "biting" hops bitterness. A more mellow hop character is preceded by a lightly carbonated and very wonderful maltiness. I am most definitely a big fan of Fuller's now, after loving the London Porter and 1845, and now this pale ale that is well worthy the London Pride moniker.....my favorite beer out of England so far.

CEZ (399) - Milano, ITALY - MAR 24, 2003
Brownish amber color, with fizzy head. The first sip reveales a pleasant malty bittersweetness, which gives way to a dry, bitter aftertaste.

badgerben (4501) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - MAR 23, 2003
UPDATED: APR 1, 2009 Original Rating, March 23, 2003: Nice and amber, no real head. Heavy on the apple and hops. A wonderful bitter. 7/4/7/4/17 Re-rating, April 1, 2009: Sigh... one of my very first ratings. And so pathetic. I will always leave my original ratings to serve as an example of how not to do this stuff. Copper color with a medium head. Solid aroma of grain and grass. Very dry, clean malt flavor. Grainy. Moderately bitter, focusing on earthy and grassy hops. An excellent bitter.

not too bad is this one. slight head, has the color of a well-mixed rum and coke! i have a feeling this one is loaded with fuggles hops as the apple is the prevailing aroma and taste in this beer. as freaky as it sounds, i almost can detect the aroma of gasoline in this one too. i would say this beer leans slightly toward the hops and possesses a mild cardboard aftertaste...pretty good

Jayb0 (1052) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - MAR 20, 2003
A distinctive beer that manages a soft creaminess above and beyond most others. On nitrogen, the amber liquid is topped with the thick creamy heady that complements the beer's mouthfeel (although suffocates some of the fruity aroma of the bottled version) Initial hop bite and strong toffee flavors immediately mellow to a round, smooth, encompassing mouthfeel of delicately balanced flavors. Finishes with lingering caramel.

Panzuriel (1358) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - MAR 19, 2003
Nice coppery color. Fine head. Nice roasted aroma with a hint of sweetness. Nice sweet taste with a dry hoppy finish.

diabel (1609) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - MAR 14, 2003
Amber colour, though lokes like coloured water. Stout-aroma, little sweet. Half bitter, half sweet aroma. This has te potential of a good beer, but it uses it only half.

This is a pretty complete beer. Smooth and hoppy, sweet and bitter, a fullbodied aroma that lets no-one down.

Brodie (540) - Blowing Rock, North Carolina, USA - MAR 4, 2003
Aroma has butterscotch, faint grassy/spicy hops, and some light pear notes. Light orange-amber color. Flavor dominated by crystal malt (caramel) and some notable hop bitterness in the finish. Moderate carbonation and medium body. A decent bitter.
