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!

Premium ale qualifiée par son brasseur beside the Thames de « outstanding ». On ne s’étrangle pas sur la Tamise !! Bien lui en fasse, surtout avec 4,1 % pour ses compatriotes (!!), et 4,7 % pour les étrangers (pourquoi sont-ils mieux traités ?? il faudra que l’on m’explique …). Trois houblons entrent dans la composition, mais elle est pasteurisée … ceci enlève donc l’avantage précédent .. Couleur ente roux caramel et brun caramel. Clarté digne de l’eau : pureté, netteté et même transparence !! Bulles moyennes partout. Mousse blanche qui se réduit vite à un nappage ténu. Arômes de malt grillé, herbes sèches, feuille de tabac blond. 1ère bouche souple sur du malt, caramel, houblon. Arrière-bouche fraîche, mais très peu complexe. 2ème sur malt et houblons qui peinent beaucoup à la tâche... Arrière-bouche plus maltée. 3ème sur malt et tabac blond. Arrière-bouche qui disparaît sur une impression aqueuse. Longueur avec parfois une impression de cidre. Alcool peu enclin à soutenir les saveurs (même si les étrangers en reçoivent pour 4,7 %!!!). Finale comment dire eeee … just enough. CONCLUSION : rien de mauvais, mais vraiment rien d’extraordinaire. Et cette bière se présente comme une « award winning ale » sur la collerette !! Ou bien on se moque des autres « real ale » anglaises, ou bien même de ses propres bières (vintage …). Je dirais plutôt une bière tout à fait ordinaire pour le quotidien de Londres ...

elosop (184) - SWEDEN - JAN 31, 2015
Gyllenbrun med tunt skum. Aromen maltig och lite fruktig. Smaken ganska mjuk och len med fin beska. Eftersmaken hyggligt lång och humlig. Lagom kolsyrad.

cervezadrinker (25) - MEXICO - JAN 30, 2015
Bottle 500 mL. pours orange-amber color with almost no head, aroma are mostly malts. Its flavor is very smooth and watery, somewhat dissapointed in that aspect since Fullers makes very robust beers, mild bitterness, some nuts, caramel and maybe some hay, very refreshing and easy to drink, wouldnt say is bad but rather some other fuller’s brews.

UPDATED: JAN 24, 2015 Bottle, pours clear amber with a white head. Berries, wet pine, almond, malts, citrus, weed, slightly nutty. Nice balance. Appeared bland at first, but there something new with every sip.

Don’t really get Fuller’s. Sometimes they seem to strive for big and bold beer. Sometimes they make these types of beer that reminds me of big corporate bland beers.

Flaska från SB. Klar bärnstenfärgad med vit skumkrona. Lätt doft av bröd och torkad aprikos. Lätt frisk kropp. Smak av bröd och metall. Lätt bitter avslutning.

karmagarda (8) - - JAN 18, 2015 does not count
At first poor (from either a bottle, can or cask) it looks rather flat and unappealing. Shlopp is a word that comes to mind. First taste and its not bad, rather bland to be honest with a slightly odd taste. Not unpleasant, definitely "ale-ish", but not something I’ll be writing home about. Smell is somewhat forgettable too. All in all an easy drinking, bland, unimpressive beer. Massively overrated by ratebeer I must say.
