London Pride is Fullers flagship beer and a best selling ale in Britain. It's found on tap in many taverns in the UK and with multiple awards both local and international it's easy to understand why. I picked up my canned sample in the LCBO - the best before date still 11 months off.

London Pride pours quite similar to other ales of the style. Copper in colour with fairly carbonated head that recedes quickly, if not surprisingly quickly. This isn't a lacy blanket your glass brew by any means. When you're done sizing it up and you've had a few mouthfuls you'll notice that the smell is there but it's not pronounced... merely content to complement the taste in well behaved and slightly floral manner.

Taste-wise, there's malt in the beginning with some earth tones, caramel and toffee. And just as you start to wonder what more there might be the hops kick in and give the ale some well deserved bitterness. The end result is a well balanced ale that's certainly deserving of a try.

A: Pours a clear medium golden yellow in color with light amounts of active visible carbonation slowly rising from the bottom of the glass and some light apricot highlights. The beer has a quarter finger tall foamy off-white head that quickly reduces to a medium sized patch of mottled very thin film and a very thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light aromas of biscuit malts with hints of caramel sweetness.

T: Upfront the beer is slightly sweet with a moderate flavor of biscuit malts and just a touch of caramel notes in the sweetness. Hints of butter and toffee with a light note of earthy hops which contribute a light amount of bitterness which fades pretty quickly.

M: Medium bodied with light to moderate amounts of carbonation. Smooth.

O: Easy to drink and sessionable. Nice complexity of flavor and definitely one to enjoy again.
