Bright amber color, with a frothy white head, faint caramelized malt, hint of grassiness, with a floral hop accent, with a grainy note in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a cookie and caramelized malts, grainy character, with some notes of nuttiness and fruitiness, with a floral hop dry accent, leading towards a faint malty and hop bitterness in the finish.

Bottle. I originally drank this from a can in a small drinking glass on British Airways and was absolutely disappointed. With a proper pour from a bottle, my opinion went up, but not substantially. The aroma and the flavor were both pleasing, but there was very little action to the palate. I found it to be a largely flat beer despite its attractive head. Another reviewer described it a buttery. That seems to work as well as any adjective I could think up. But I donít often have a thirst for a buttery beer.

this is a beer that i used to love and still do like it. it can come in many different forms...cold cask is the best, of course. and one of my favorites when flying on virgin airlines. nice malty grainy beer with subtle hop fruit characters.

OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - APR 7, 2006
bottle - pours amber with a pretty nice offwhite head that stayed pretty well. Light aroma of caramel malts and some toffee, as well as some floral hops. Flavor is grainy with caramel and honey sweetness as well before the somewhat bitter floral hop finish. Palate is medium bodied and somewhat buttery. Would make a very drinkable session ale.

My favorite English soccer team--West Ham United, of Londonís East End--came up painfully short in the FA Cup final Saturday. It was a bitter loss, but also a day that left all Irons/Hammers supporters full of immense pride at their underdog sideís brave performance. Hence, it was a perfect day for Fullerís London Pride. This is such a classic example of its style, there really isnít much to say. Its caramel-malty aroma and golden copper-brown appearance are extremely inviting. Again true to style, its flavor and body are perhaps a little on the thin side, but extremely drinkable and balanced, with a straightforward hop bitterness slightly more assertive than the caramel malt background--although the maltiness becomes more noticeable as the beer warms. The only thing really limiting this style-defining beer is being served in a bottle; this refreshing, lightly carbonated, but deceptively flavorful session brew absolutely demands being served traditionally cask-conditioned.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle....rich amber color with a slight head, no remarkable appearance. A good beer, but I was expecting a lot more from Fullerís considering how much I enjoyed 1845. All and all, okay, and I will drink again, depending on other choices available, but will not seek this one out.

UPDATED: APR 9, 2006 Bottle, 500ml. Average lasting head, Malty aroma with hints of fruit. Clear amber colour. Malty taste with a fruity, bitter finish. Light carbonation. Quite drinkable, but nothing special.

pale ale my ass. i probably would give this beer a higher rating, but the fullers representative that gave me this was bashing american microbrewers for "not finishing the beermaking process" as they massively hop their beer. he was so snotty about it. and all iíd said was i prefer american hops to british ones (you know what i mean). anyways, a quality beer, but nothing impressive.

Bottle. Amber colour with a small white head. Fruity aroma with some hints of hops. Malty fruity flavor. Going over in a long hoppy bitter finish.

Clover honey pour. Really subdued aroma is sweet with honey, butterscotch and jellied fruit. Slight detection of floral hop note as well, but really light. The body is medium and quite quaffable - showing more buttery, caramel malts and a slight hop bitterness.
