In this beer blog, we are going to get into the flagship from Fuller’s Brewery and the beer is London Pride Pale Ale. If you read my beer blog post on their ESB, you know the history of this brewery. If you have not read that beer blog post, please, read that post to get to know this brewery. Let us get into beer.
It has a clear copper color with a constant white head. There is no smell to this beer. The taste is a malty caramel with a light carbonation with a tropical fruit aftertaste. It is drinkable and refreshing beer.
Here is a description from the beer bottle:
Fuller’s London Pride is an award-winning English classic premium beer, rich and smooth, with a good malty base and well-developed hop notes in the finish.
The Griffin Brewery in Chiswichk, London, has been brewing fine beers since 1654.
The Fuller, Smith & Turner partnership, dating back to 1845, brews an excellent range of award-winning beers, many of which are available in the USA, including London Pride premium beer and the world’s original ESB. I hope you will enjoy trying all our fine beers.
Here is description from their website (www.fullers.co.uk):
Fuller’s London Pride is the UK’s leading premium ale.
An intrinsic part of London, London Pride has been brewed by the banks of the Thames from the very first brew.
Known and loved for its smooth, distinctive malty base and rich balance of hops flavours, London Pride is London and the UK’s favourite premium ale.

Ending, this is a great beer but I am not a huge fan of the malty base pale ales. This is how all English Pale Ales. There is nothing wrong that brewing styles. Europe set the standard for the classic beer styles. I love the hops that they use in this brew but I just feel this beer would be better if it did not have a huge malty backbone. This is what the brewery and the brewmaster at the time was going for in the recipe. So for what it is, it is well made beer. I highly recommend this beer. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
