Fuller's London Pride
From: London, England
Type: English Pale Ale
ABV: 4.7% (bottled); 4.1% (cask)
Chris Schonberger says: "Malty, sessionable, balanced, superb on cask—this beer, for many around the world, has become synonymous with traditional English brewing. The British old guard couldn't have asked for a better poster boy. English malts are the backbone so many of the foundational craft ales, and more often than not brewers look to Pride as the template for how to achieve that sturdy, biscuity base. And while its heavy export has made it world famous, the Fuller's flagship is just as much of a workhorse back home, holding down the fort for traditional English ales in the face of a market flooded with generic lagers."
