Fuller’s London Pride from Fuller Smith and Turner PLC in Chiswick, London, England pours a gem-like golden amber colour with a rich and creamy white head that settles as a sturdy film and leaves a moderate amount of lace. The aroma of this English Pale Ale is of roasted malts, with a cherry or plum-like fruitiness and it carries undertones of freshwater and floral hops.
The taste of Fuller’s London Pride has a bready character, with a toasted accent and a faint honey or caramel-like sweetness. This ale has an extraordinarily smooth and creamy mouthfeel, despite little to no perceivable carbonation aside from the head. A dark wood note comes through on the back of the tongue as it finishes and the aftertaste is nicely embittered.
