January 7, 2015

11.2 oz bottle, English dimpled pint

A – Medium amber with very high clarity, glows in the lamplight. About a centimeter of white bubbles on top, with fairly low retention. Some lacing and bubbles remain.

S – Golden biscuits with just a touch of uncooked dough or crackers, along with strong sweet toffee and caramel. Some mild vanilla is also in the mix. Some fruity esters but hard to peg. Hops are pretty low in the background, floral, noble-type.

T – Flavor has same malt character as the aroma, but is lower in the mix. Hops are floral, but hop bitterness is the star here, much more prominent.

M – Body is light to medium, fairly low in carbonation, the mouthfeel commonly associated with British beers (wrongly so, most of the time.) Very juicy, and bitterness is prominent from start to finish. Would be better with the fuller body resulting from cask dispensation.

O – Great aroma, god flavor profile, but not the most satisfying drinker. Again, I would love to have this on cask in the pub for the “real” experience.

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.
