look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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.

Poured from 12 oz bottle into pint glass

Appearance: pours a 1" sudsy off white head that falls slowly with some moderate lacing. Color is a clear light copper with mild streaming carbonation.

Aroma: some sweet bready malt, fruit, earthy hops.

Mouthfeel: light to medium bodied with standard fluffy ale mouthfeel. Finish is dry.

Flavor: bready malt, some biscuit, a bit raisin, earthy and a bit of floral hop finish.

Overall: a classic that never disappoints. I could drink this everyday if my budget allowed it.

Best English Pale Ale I've had to date.

Very smooth, great tasting, well rounded pale ale. Great level of malt sweetness and flavor balanced against a mild level of hop bitterness and an aroma of malt sweetness and breadiness.. This beer epitomizes the english pale ale style for me.

Very good beer.

From a bottle into an imperial pint
A: light clear copper, small head, little lacing
S: caramel malt, toasted grain, little mineral, little floral hops
T: follows nose, biscuit and caramel, a little lemon mid-way, and the finish has some floral hops and mineral/medicinal notes
M: light and thin, and fairly well carbonated; the finish is fairly lively, considering.

The Fuller's London Pride is a light orange-amber pale ale. It has a small but firm head and leaves a good lacing on the glass. The taste is a fruity, citrus malt. Some bitter aftertaste but overall very smooth.
