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.
