3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

Zakupene v tescu. Vona taka fadna. Farba polotmava medova. Chud: jemne horkasta zakoncena medovou chutou. Fisler (659) - Bamberg, GERMANY - OCT 15, 2017
Schönes Kupferrot im Glas, die Erwartung nach Karamell-Malz wird im Geruch bestätigt. Im Trunk ebenso, sattes Malz, sehr crispy, hinten bitter, ein echter Klassiker. Rod_beer (70) - DF, MEXICO - OCT 12, 2017
Clear amber colour with a barely thin white head. Aroma of caramel, bread and hops. Taste is mild sweet, with a slightly sensation of licorice and smokey hints. Medium body, oily texture, bitter long end. Pretty nice. Piepenhenrich (1198) - Steinbach, GERMANY - OCT 7, 2017

UPDATED: OCT 4, 2017 330ml bottle. Pours dark amber with thin white head. Aroma is fairly floral. Tastes of sweet biscuits, toffee, caramel. Really great traditional malty brew. Balanced, sessionable. Lovely sweetness with a hint of bitterness on the palate. So widely available everywhere around London. Tend to make sure I have one or two in the house!

UPDATED: OCT 3, 2017 bottle at home bought frommy local supermarket. Has a biscuity body and a malty back bone. Can't taste the hops bit then it's a bitter and you don't normally. I like to try lots of different beers and love IPA's the most but when I just want a good decent bitter then I get this thejackpacker (587) - East Sussex, ENGLAND - OCT 1, 2017
Bottle from Sytembolaget. A decent bitter, it feels better in the bottle than it did on cask last time ot be honest. I get the hops a lot more, some caramel. Grassy hops. Not bad at all. aardvark1 (161) - POLAND - SEP 25, 2017
Bursztynowe, z wysoką białą pianą. Aromat to przede wszystkim miód, karmel, nuty słodowe, w tle lekkie zioła. W smaku zdecydowanie słodowe, miodowe, coś jakby rodzynki, niska, ziołowa goryczka. Puste na finiszu. Takie sobie RoBEERt92 (242) - Bytom, POLAND - SEP 24, 2017
