Al vertirla tiene una buena cabeza espumosa que se disipa al poco tiempo. Su aroma tiene pan, cebada y toffee. Ya en boca tiene un cuerpo moderadamente ligero, con un gusto a malta y un sabor amargo bastante bueno.

There is a bitterness that lingers with this beer. There is a date on the back of the bottle, so I know it is not too old. I agree with the faint toffee & floral note, & some hops. This beer just does not do it for me. If you want a good English Pale Ale then splurge on a bottle or 2 of the Timothy Taylor The Landlord, it will be worth it. Cheers! C

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Look: pale orange/drak golden yellow. Fizzy head.
Smell: fruit (I'd say both hops and esters), some toffee, and malt (biscuit). So far it feels like a Märzen turned ale with a bit more hops. But so far so good.
Taste: hops, both fruity and spicy. Bitterness is there but by no means overwhelming. A bit of booze, some esters, a bit more toffee and malt cookie. Well balanced, nothing overwhelming. Very good.
Feel: Medium body, quite on the fizzy side, nothing remarkable, nothing bad.
Overall: Good and enjoyable, will repeat. A nice companion for a good book, music or non-beer-related conversation while style bringing interesting things into your nose and mouth.

Excellent. Probably a top 10 beer for me. Love the style, and this is probably the best example of an English Ale I've had.

One of the few beers that still satisfies and isn't owned by one of the big beer distributors. This beer is great all year round and has a wonderful caramel taste that can't be matched. One of my favorites. A great last beer of the evening!

Look: It pours light amber and is very clear Head retention is low.

Smell: It has floral aroma with some fruity esters. There are also moderate caramel notes as well. In additions there are very low levels of earth.

Taste: It has moderate bitterness with a small bit of spice, floral, and some earth. There is a moderate amount of caramel in the flavor as well. The fruity esters are very low.

Feel: It has a moderately light body with moderate bitterness in the finish.

Overall, there is a good balance between the hops and the malt which makes this beer quite easy drinking.

Pours a clear amber color with a solid white head.

Smells of floral toffee malts, young grass and rich wheat.

Has a very refreshing mouthfeel, due to its light body and higher carbonation.

Tastes of bread dough, dried leaves and lighter caramel, with a decent dryness to it. Has a toffee pronounced middle part with an aqueous softness, gently tied together by a prominent bitterness. Finishes flowery and dry, a little watery with just enough malts to set the balance.

Very clean and light, with a well pronounced herbal bitterness among a balancing malt foundation.

Pours a deep orange color with very little head. Left some lacing. This was not as good as I was expecting it to be. There is nothing really bad about this beer, but hoppier beers have a better flavor to me.

Fuller’s London Pride Original Ale has a creamy beige head that evaporated quickly, leaving virtually no glass lacing.

The beer itself is a dark golden colour that is almost copper looking when there is less light.

The aroma is dark maltiness, brown bread, and a hint of hops; all lightly done. The taste attributes are similar but much more pronounced.

The beer is medium bodied, the mouthfeel somewhat silky, and the finish smooth.

I really enjoyed this beverage and would recommend trying it. It would go well with anything but in particular red meat dishes.
