Fuller’s London Pride (6 of 1001)

Rating: 3.5

The flagship beer from the Fuller, Smith & Turner brewery, which has a total of 7 beers listed within the 1001 Beers You Must Try Before You Die book, will be the sixth beer of the 1001 I will be reviewing. Again this is not a type of beer I am used to trying on a regular basis but I will try it with an open mind. Sold as a cask ale at 4.1% I will be sampling it this time  in its pasteurised bottle form with an alcohol content of 4.7% abv.

Appearance (3/5): Reddish amber/copper in appearance with a small head that shrinks quite fast. Lots of bubbles rising as well.
Aroma (6/10): Smells of hops, toffee & some malt. Noticeable but not over powering.
Taste (7/10): Hops are quite apparent & it has a malt and slightly sweet taste as well with a bit of oak through too. It was a nice bitter aftertaste to finish with.
Palate (4/5): A light to medium body, smooth & not too dry.

Overall (16/20): A quite nice beer overall that tastes nicer than I expected. It is well balanced & could be a good beer although not outstanding.
