Excellent beer, tasty, smooth. Cask conditioned, it can truly be described as awesome.

warm spring sunset glows marvelously through this handsome three-quarter pint. kestral-chestnut brew has a lax head that only lingers because it appears to be waiting for a ride to get somewhere else. a weakish malt aroma of a caramel apple, or the left over stick perhaps. a whiskey suggestion, but clearly no one responded to the suggestion however well intended. smooth palate. follows roughly this itinerary: first sweet, then watery, hop nibble, (vague mental perception of refreshment occurs here), then you go back to your magazine. only marginally more íumphí than bass. seems overrated, likely owing to price and august packaging. one should not feel youíre demeaning the beer by firing up a cigar, in fact, thatís what iíd reccommend.

Good beer. There is better, but this is pretty damned good. Very smooth, but the flavor is a bit plain for me. Much better hand pulled out of a cask, as are all Fullerís products that Iíve had the opportunity of trying that way.

Aurelius (4443) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 21, 2002
*Weeps, knowing that I wonít get many better than this...* Appearance is great -- bottle, label, light tea colored ale and standing froth. Aroma is butter-rum, caramelized sugar and hops. Flavor is well-balanced for a pale ale, the hops catch you going rather than coming. Palate is a borderline 4, more like a 3.5.

Good smooth english palenice hops and when served cold goes down well

hennes (934) - Fountain, Michigan, USA - MAY 21, 2002
Had it on tap at my local and was disappointed. The good flavours - some hint of hops and a touch of fruity malt, are accompanied by a musty, old socks taste that lingers throughout. Pretty mediocre fare.

aracauna (3160) - Georgia, USA - MAY 20, 2002
Nice malty flavor and aroma. Not very hoppy at all, but it doesnít say IPA, only PA. I liked this beer and it went very well with the Shepherdís Pie I had the the Fox & Hounds pub. Nice beer.

ElGaucho (2253) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - MAY 19, 2002
Compared to Fullers ESB, London Pride has more a more alcohol aroma. It has a pleasant, yet perhaps not forceful enough faint bitterness and no head whatsoever. It isnít quite as flavorful as the ESB, and would need a little more sweetness to match up.

jcalbi (380) - Medford, New Jersey, USA - MAY 18, 2002
Rusty color with a thin but persistent head. Hop bitterness subsides as a slightly sweet but rather robust chocolate flavor moves to the front. Solid English Pale Ale.

Schroppfy (2360) - Łůdż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - MAY 16, 2002
Great! The perfect English-style Pale Ale, IMO. Maltiness abounds. Lip-smacking goodness. A bit thin bodied perhaps?
