Phatz (225) - Paradise, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 6, 2006
Appearance: Pours an amber-ish orange color/ with a small head that fades quickly; little sticky lacing. Smell: There is an immediate sweet caramel and buttery aroma that has subtle bready malt characteristics as well. There are very gentle English hops in the back of the nose. Taste: This is a remarkable quaffable easy to accept beer. Very tasty. It has a soft flavor that has no bold characteristics; but its glamour is in it’s gentle approachability. There is a bit of toasted malt, caramel, and breadyness up front. Then through the center, the beer seems very fruity and a bit juicy. There is a bit of buttery diacetyl and oily / juicy texture to the mid. The finish is slightly dry with just the perfect amount hop presence to leave a gentle bitterness lingering magnificently on the tongue. Well-done Fuller’s! Mouthfeel: Very smooth slick texture that is slightly crisp around the edge but more oily / juicy through the center. Solid backbone leaves this lightweight beer feeling solid enough, and the dry finish is brilliant. Drinkability: This is one of the easiest drinking beers that I have encountered. It was so easy to drink and put down I hardly have words to describe it. Maybe the simple straightforward attributes. Maybe the perfect balance. Maybe the juicy characteristics; whatever it is that made this beer so quaffable and approachable made it a fantastically easy beer to drink! Hope this is helpful. Cheers!

AlfredoGarcia (40) - Santiago, CHILE - FEB 27, 2015
500 ml bottle. Sweet fruity aroma. Amber color with no foam, go ahead and serve it with the glass straight. Sweet and a little bitter taste; very well balanced. Light body with no much carbonatation. Fantastic beer, Londoners should actually be proud of it.

Taste is a bit watery and lightly sweetish. A little bitterness in the aftertaste. Quite good - but VERY English.

Une bière rafraîchissante un peu amère mais laissant une impression de douceur. Marqué en malt, d’une belle couleur orangée sans mousse et peu de bulles.
