3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
[097-20061105] 500mL. Floral, metallic celery aroma. Clear, red-amber body with medium-lasting small creamy white head. Malty roast and raisin flavour with hints of chocolate in the aftertaste. Medium body. Nice togetherness! Wouldnít mind coming across this in an actual British pub. (Remember remember the fifth of November...)

11.2 oz bottle. a nice transparent amber hue, with a large white head, disolving fast. strange aroma of malts and slight caramel, quite weak. flovour was a little watery but had a nice bitter finish that i liked. overall not quite as good as i thiught it would be, very drinkable though.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pour is a transparent amber/orange with a smallish head. Aromas are of caramel apple, but fairly weak. Flavor is weak and watery. A bit of malt sweetness with some mild hops, but overall this is disappointing.

on tap. Competent if uninspiring. Itís a macro brewed english beer, ok. I had this in London as a cure for my jetlag (which is a great way to get rid of jetlag mid-way through yourfirst day in London). It was pleasant and thatís about all i can say.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from North Coast Coop in Eureka, CA. Poured a beautiful clear copper color wtih a medium white head that left good lacing. Nose of caramel and malts, with hops apparent. Mouthfeel very rich and flavor is malts and it has a fruty and bittter finish. A very nice brew.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at The Firkin & Fox, Glen Ellyn, IL. A nice session ale. An English Bitter, but not so hoppy by American standards. A good balance of caramelly malts and bittering hops. Light to medium body makes for easy drinking. A good choice when Iím in the mood for more than a few but still want a decent brew.

Yet another good English, reminds me of ESB by the same company. My only problem with Fullerís is the richness in their beers diminishes drinkability, whereas Bass or Pedigree can be swallowed again the morning after the hard night before

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a clear coppery color with a quarter inch head that falls quickly to a thin, spotty cap and ring that leaves behind a tattered bit of lace.
Smell; bread dough, sweet malty caramel and a bit of hops are present as well. Thereís also a little bit of a fruity undertone in there.
Taste; slightly bitter and floral hops, bread dough and caramel malts with a bit of a sweet fruitiness in the finish. Thereís a bit of a buttery quality that makes me knock this down a notch. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, and pretty easy to drink.
