Pours a beautiful, rich, honey-amber color. Smells of fruit (maybe green grapes, pears, or currants?), slight caramel, and also sweet bread (perhaps comparable to challah). There's also a slight mustiness on the nose, but in no way is this a bad thing. I've gone on record noting positive mustiness in beers before. I think it adds a degree of complexity to a few different styles. The taste centers heavily upon the bread and fruit, and goes out on a masterfully balanced mixture of caramel sweetness and mild hop bitterness, resulting in a not too sweet, not too dry exit. A mouthful of London Pride feels substantial and satisfying, but not too thick and filling. I could drink several of these in a row. My only regret is that I only bought one. I think I've found the platonic ideal for an English Ale. Perfect.
