    The pride of London I assume. It pours a clear mahogany colour with a tight creamy tan coloured cap. The aroma is light roast, light caramel, weak citrus, and yeast. The flavor is fresh bread and light caramel, and the finish is weakly bitter and citrusy.

    Fullers has mastered the art of brewing traditional British style ales. London Pride is one such al. A caramel coloured beer wiuth rich notes of light fruit and citrus from traditional earthy hops. Everything comes together in the flavour with the sweet caramel notes up front and a bitter hop finish. You can’t go wrong with Fullers.

    Pours a clear orange/amber with a one finger off white head that takes its time. Decent amount of carbonation. Aroma is very soapy and sweet. Taste is very bland and metallic. There is exactly one month before the BBD on the bottle but it tastes old and bland. Not bitter in the least. Not a good beer.

    Pours very minimal head, leaves a thin ring. Has a rusty light amber colour. Fairly weak lacing. Not getting much from aromas, mainly floral hops and nutty malts. Flavours are roasted malts, barley, earthy hops. Notes of caramel, sweetness. Mild spices in the mix. Watery mouthfeel. Light bodied. Not too bad.

    Use to drink this every once and a while when first started into beer but it has probably been 10 years since I've had it. Big amber body with a creamy cap floating on top............. looks good but I normally don't get excited over this style, almost always drinkable but almost always boring. More then expected hops in the aroma, caramel, some thing I'll call sharp banana ...... not bad, not bad at all. Goes down fast and easy. Crisp hoppyness, toasted malts, slightly bready finish. Melon, hints of leather, lemon? maybe. This is actually pretty good,and I wasn't bored.

    A very smooth beer and as always with malty taste, not too low on carbon. Just right. These British ales are a good beer for creating appetite and fish and chips go well with them. (London)

    pours a orangish amber color with a small white head that hangs around for while. A tart aroma of caramel malts, citrus, light hops, and apple rise up from the glass. The beer is drinkably smooth and surpisingly complex, with some light nutty malts.

    Finally trying this stalwart. Clear tea brown-amber pour with a sustained creamy white head and spotty lacing. Tea-like aroma with some caramel malts, very light ripe fruits, earthy hops. Taste is much like the aroma: a bit a caramel malt sweetness offset by earthy hops bitter. Very easy to drink, could have lots of these. Good ESB.

    The kind of beer that would make family dinners way more enjoyable. And a low abv means I wouldn't make an ass of myself like last thanksgiving. Aside from being really smooth, not a great beer, but way above macrobrewery standard. A little plain, with a moderate malt-caramel finish.

    Pours very clear copper and no head, the opaque color is astoundingly clear. Aroma is mildly hoppy but faint. Mouthfeel is a little hoppy but also watery. Flavor is caramel and water. Overall not my favorite but I get it.
