COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Unfiltered; Bottle: Filtered
Wild River is a double-hopped pale ale, inspired by some of the finest craft brewers from the USA, bursting with citrus hop flavours. Brewed to 4.5% ABV, the beer uses some of the best known hop varieties from the West Coast of the US — Liberty, Willamette, Cascade and Chinook.

Well, at least Fullers are trying to hop up - not aggressively enough though - a pale imitation of west coast US APA - thin bodied as 4.5% would suggest - but a good balance between biscuit malt and herbal/fruity hops - just needs MORE (esp hops) - I guess they want to appeal to the mass market of non-hop heads and not scare away their core ’best bitter’ drinkers.

A very thin head follows the distinctly lager looking beer. The taste couldnt be different though. Its a hop explosion in your mouth. A fantastic pale ale with a slight bitter twinge.

dnicolaescu (695) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - MAY 10, 2014
BOTTLE 50CL. Look: clear golden with a white frothy head with poor retention. Aroma: some hops, sweetish creme brulee like notes, malt sweetness, metallic, some late toffee. Taste: light sweetness, moderate bitter and spicy finish.

The „double hopped” and „craft inspired” slogan on the label are a bit of an overstatement.

triskaideka (128) - Killarney, IRELAND - MAY 6, 2014
Bottle at home. Pale golden with white head. Citrus and grapefruit notes. Crisp and clean - but from something flagged as double hopped I was expecting a bit more. Nice summer ale I think.

Cimbasso (28) - - APR 30, 2014
This Fuller's bottled beer is well-made and very well-balanced. The golden colour contrasts with a compact white head. The initial aroma is fruity - apples and lemons - and the taste has a powerful citrus flavour dominated by grapefruit. Nice hoppy finish. Very fresh-tasting, but a little light in taste.

CanCrusher (600) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - APR 26, 2014
Bottle 0,50L. Clear, dark golden colour with small, frothy, white head. Aroma is frothy and fruity - lemon, orange, also some herbs and grass. Taste starts and finishes medium bitter with caramel, biscuits and grass. Medium body, soft carbonation, dry texture. Very, very tasty beer, one of my Fuller’s favorites. So good and only 4,5% ABV...

Bottle. Light yellow, clear. Small white head. Aroma has mild citrus and pine. Taste has grain, pine, some citrus. Mouthfeel is a bit weak. Taste is well balanced with a good bitter aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
