Bottle. Pours golden with an off-white head. Is very bitter with a malty sweetness. Bitter dry finish. ehhdayton (1188) - USA - AUG 10, 2006
Pours a copperish brown with a cream colored head. The aroma has a touch of caramel malt and some light fruitiness. The flavor is initially caramelly sweet and finishes with a moderate bit of hop bitterness. berkshirejohn (6502) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 6, 2006
This is my everyday bottled beer at home. A warm coppery colour with a rampant creamy head which soon settles. A sweet hoppy taste with a bitter finish. Hits the spot every time. Good on draught too. altonbrownd (5897) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - AUG 6, 2006
Draft at Novotel London Tower Bridge in London. I thought it was a good decent beer, slightly sweet, with a nice finish. Kiapepito (110) - Port Angeles, Washington, USA - AUG 2, 2006

I liked the burned taste with some bitternes. Brown colour and a fine head. I am a big fan og Fullers and this is one of my favorite Fullers. KingofCastle (208) - London, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 27, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 25, 2008 500 mL can: Finally, a decent bitter/ale in a can from these parts. I hope people buy it so the LCBO doesn’t have to discontinue it . . . where would I be without this? Nice soft amber & copper colour with medium head, great lacing on glass. Slightly sweet, malty, fruity with some stronger distinct hops really rounding out the taste. Nice bitter finish but not thin or harsh. This is what you want from an English ale; big flavours but drinkable. No false advertising here: it is a "smooth & astonishing complex beer." Better than Tetley’s awful can. Excellent with food and flavours intensify as it warms (nuttier, sweeter finish). Smooth for an ale. This and Wychwood’s Hobgoblin are the fruitiest, smoothest bitters available right now, along with John Bull’s Best Bitter which is no slouch either.

Draught at Sanctuary in Iowa City, IA. Clear light brown with an orange tint and a thick off white head that left a sheet of lace on the glass. Nice malty caramel aroma and flavor accented by sprucy hops. Modest carbonation makes for a very smooth finish. Solid brew. Gethinbeer (2452) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUL 16, 2006
From bottle. Sweet aroma with hops. Little syrupy also. Copper appearance with good carb, but a very quick disappearing head. The beer has a slightly sweet taste, but a nice crisp bitter finish. A little metallic on the palette. maniac (3800) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 14, 2006
Clear amber color with a medium creamy off-white head. Caramel and light bitter aroma. Floral and grassy hop flavor, with some light bitterness in the end.
