'Fuller's London Pride: Outstanding Premium Ale'

This beer has a full malty flavour that is excellently balanced. It tastes like what a lot of other beers aim for when they go with a heavy malt taste but where other beers frequently overshoot into bitterness Fuller's LONDON PRIDE stays within a flavourful and ever so slightly fruity taste range that doesn't overpower and leaves a smooth and short lived aftertaste. This would go excellently with a meal or standard pub snacks or on its own.

I purchased it at the local New Brunswick Liquor store in a handsome 500ml bottle for the sum of $3.99 (all prices Canadian dollars) and drank it mid-afternoon while, unsurprisingly, writing this review. At 4.7% alcohol it's a weaker beer (by Canadian standards) but the flavour makes up for "missing" 0.3% booze. While I only drank this one bottle this afternoon I feel as though there wouldn't be any issue drinking three or four more if my intention was to get soused. In fact, the smooth and short lived aftertaste make it a good candidate for a night of drinking - the same cannot be said for many other beers that have as impressive and complex a taste.

I like this beer and heartily recommend it!
