Date: 9/2/14
Location: Halftime Mamaroneck
Glassware: Snifter

Appearance: An Amber beer in color that moves towards a light orange when held to the light. Moderate white head with plus retention. Not much cling. The beer lets a lot of light in, the beer is not difficult to see through when held to the light.
Aroma: English malts hit me first with a very light white bread aroma. The hops follow second as a get a slight bitterness involving orange peel and maybe just a hint of lemon.
Taste: The malts evolve more as a flavor in the taste as I'm now getting more bread, a little nuttiness, and some pale malts. The hops move to the back as the flavor does not hit me as hard as the aroma but I'm still getting orange peel, orange water and a hint of lemon.
Mouthfeel: Medium light to medium in body. Medium high in carbonation. The carbonation is of note because it's helping to keep many of the hop flavors on my tongue for an extended period of time. It's really quite refreshing. The malts add a hint of coarseness at the back of my throat but they are working well within the beer.

I mean, this is nearly as good as it gets with British brews.

Being a savory-flavor guy, a bread freak, carb monster in general, I always liked British ales. By the time I finally got to the UK in my early 30's, I was so stoked to get into a pub that we stopped at the first one I saw, and the first tap that hit my eye was London Pride.

Well, that was tasty. You guys know the drill with Fuller's, but if a selection of British ales was put in front of me, the only hesitation I would have in going for London Pride first would be it's cousin ESB.
