This beer has an O.K. malty flavor and a hint that hops were involved in its making, but overall seems just a small step up from a mass market US beer. I made a few trips to the UK many years ago and had some great local beers in and around London. This is not those.

Review: Bottle of London Pride British Pale Ale, 4.70%ABV

Comes in a nice looking and distinctive 330ml bottle.

London Pride is a decent ale from England’s Capital city.

Pours a lovely amber reddish colour with some white head that faded quickly. Some light lacing is seen.

The aroma is of some biscuit malts and earthy hops with hints of caramel sweetness. Nice.

A lovely refreshing flavour which hits the taste buds immediately. It tastes of light caramel, some earthy and earthy hops with a mild bitter aftertaste. It has a different, subtle, complex taste to it than what you can expect from a lot of beers, which has to be appreciated.

I also found it a bit strong in the taste which I enjoyed, more of a kick to it than other ales.

Overall, London Pride is a solid pale ale, with lots of flavour, and was fairly easy to drink, a good session beer. Definitely worth a try and a good introduction to English, cough London, beers.

Appearance - Light but not pale amber with a foam head that has around average retention. Not the best looking beer I have ever come across in the style but it is pretty on point for type and is by no means unpleasant to the eye.

Smell - Sweet malts are evident from the offset with some hints of plum and grape with caramel and floral tones. There is also some light bitter hop aroma.

Taste - Almost identical to the smell profile. There is notes of plum and grape style fruit, light caramel sweet malts and enough bitter hop to make it very well balanced. there is also some boozy character to the flavour but is is not over powering and adds to the overall experience.

MF - Mildly astringent mostly due to the boozy character. This beer has good body and a nice long lived linger that encourages further drinking.

Overall - well balanced and very drinkable this beer is again a fine example of the style and a good ambassador for the British style which tends to be more rounded and balanced than the new wave of hop forward beers. (Not that I'm claiming one is better than the other just pointing out the difference in the regional styling)

I am not an expert, so I will just review this as someone who likes to sit and taste beers.

I had a high expectation about this beer, at the start I found a bit of disappointment, as with this I realized that I am more into darker beers, but after a couple of drinks (and a little better temperature) I started to juge this as a more neutral point, and I really found it amazing, maybe not my favourite beer, but absolutely one of the best I've tasted so far, a smooth flavor not so bitter to be heavy, but bitter enough to taste marvelous.

Magic! This beer is consistently satisfying - I grab a bottle or two every few months to remind myself of the standard for quality beer. Smooth, balanced, and everything an English Ale should be.
