Fuller’s London Pride is an English Pale Ale brewed by Fuller Smith & Turner PLC, and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in a nonic pint glass from a bottle.
The ale pours a crystal clear golden hue and is topped a finger-thick cap of loose, ivory white froth that shows modest retention. The reduction leaves behind a thin ring of bubbly foam that rounds the glass.
The aroma is mild with a scent of toffee, bready malt, and floral hops.
The palate follows the nose with toasted bread malt leading the tasting. A mild bitterness of floral and earthy hops caps a finish that lingers briefly. Toffee, bready malt, and a hint of tangy orange lightly sweeten the swallow.
Its feel has a soft and smooth draw that picks up a mild astringency on the backend. Slightly oily, its medium body has a little over light carbonation.
Its presentation meets the standards of the style. Aromatics are slight but pleasant. Its feel is right in line with expectations. Clean, easy drinking, and sessionable, Fuller’s London Pride is a fine representation of the English Pale.
