Brewery: Fuller’s (London, England)
Type: English Pale Ale
Thoughts: Pours a nice glowing bright copper colour, with a small amount of head which is quickly gone, leaving some tracings on glass wall. First thing I notice as a broad statement is that this tastes like a draught beer for sure. Very fresh. Little to no smell, nothing distinguishable to me. It’s lively in my mouth, not overly carbonated, just active and explosive. This is a malt beer, I can’t distinguish any hops. It’s smokey and bright at the same time. You know what, it’s not earth shattering but it’s a likeable beer.
I am returning to this review on the last 100ml of the 500 bottle. There has been a growing alcohol flavour as it warms up, something I barely noticed at first but it has grown which I haven’t loved. It’s a complex, grown up beer. And it’s worth having once or twice a year.
Returning back one more time- laying it bed my mouth reeked and tasted like alcohol. Didn’t like that..
