It made lots of thick head that would not go away. Amber reddish color. Nice fruity and hoppy aroma and a hint of malt.
Low carbonation and very small bubbles. Light going to medium body.
Malty sweet flavor well balanced with refreshing hops that leaves a nice sensation on your tongue. Notes of caramel, Earthy and floral English hops and a slight touch of toasted malts.
Mild dry and bitter aftertaste. Solid good bitter and sweet beer, it proves you can be big and still produce a decent quality product.

Appearance: Pours a foamy two finger head that recedes moderately fast. Light copper.

Aroma: Iron, hops, and a hint of caramel.

Taste: Rich and malty, with a nice balance and a hoppy background. Some toffee-like sweetness and toast in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, medium bodied. Goes down easy.

Overall: A fine example of its type, London Pride is a long time favourite of mine. I like it from the tap (cask), from the can, and from the bottle, and it's a beer that doesn't seem to suffer much from any of these storage methods. This one really is what it says on the tin: rich, malty & satisfying.
