COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

An excellent brew that doesnít disappoint. The right mixture of hops and malt make for a great tasting bittersweet, if not smoky, ale. The light body makes it the perfect BBQ companion. One of my personal favorites.

Nice light copper color, faint malt aroma, fairly malty taste with a slight bitter hoppy aftertaste. Fairly dry finish.

Ungstrup (29992) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 25, 2002
A light redbrown beer with an OK head. It doesnít have much aroma but it is faintly sweet. The flavor is sweet fruity and slightly bitter; a fantastic balance. Definately a realy good beer.

Prostman (1077) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 24, 2002
One of the nicer English Pale Aleís. Not as good as Samuel Smithís, but still worth seeking out.

UPDATED: OCT 15, 2004 Rerate Now that I thnk I know a little bit more about beer, I am re-rating this one. Clean, crisp, tasting bitter with some buttery accents. Light, wilting white head with a fresh lake water aroma. Thick, mouthfeel. Great for sessoin purposes. Very much a classic and deserving of its high rating - just not quite as generous as when I was a rookie. Original 3.9 Good, full bodied bitter. Malty, bread smelling aroma. Active, creamy long lasting head. Nice amber color - another winner by Fuller.

The first beer Iíve found that makes diacetyl work really well. From the get-go, this beer smells ultra-buttery, almost like hot toast slathered in a tablespoon of butter. Flavor, though it also has a good caramel sweetness and a nice bitter dose of hops, is similarly dominated by butter, but the balance is such that itís extremely pleasant and almost too drinkable, if thatís possible.

Even though a little "thin", this beer could be drank by the pint all night. Very smooth without a weak taste, balanced, not an excess hops or malt.
