WILK Friday BeerBuzz–29 Apr 2011 (Fullers London Pride)

29 April 2011

WILKFridayBerbuzz8I’ll readily admit up front that it was a lot of fun poking a little fun at the royal wedding and British accents…but more importantly I’ll admit I have VERY fond memories of drinking today’s beer in London last year, and I am a huge fan of Fullers.

Fuller's London PrideIn honor of the “royal wedding” I decided today to choose a brewery that is London’s only remaining traditional family brewery; Fullers.  Fuller, Smith and Turner has been operating a brewery on Chiswick Lane in London since 1845.  It’s also interesting to note that there has been brewing going on at that location under various names for over 350 years!

File0499I chose Fullers London Pride for two reasons.  First, it is a beer that I enjoyed many a pint of while visiting London last summer (see the close up photo left taken at the Leinster Arms on Hyde Park by ME!).  Cask London Pride is very popular in the 367 Fullers pubs and for good reason.  Second, this is Fuller’s most popular brew worldwide and it’s widely know as Britain's leading “premium” ale.  Combine this with it’s easy-drinking character and the fact that it’s readily available in the US & NEPA and you have a winner.

London Pride is well know for it’s balance and drinkability and to me this is why it’s such a great brew.  The malt and fruity flavors are well balanced by the Challenger and Target hops, and the 4.7% ABV make it a great session beer as well.  Be sure to try this one for yourself and see if you agree.

Thanks

to  Prince William, Princess Kate, Nancy, John, Joe, Bosco and all of “me mates”  for yet another fun Friday.

I love this beer! My cousin brought some last weekend and was flavorful and not too strong. Everyone should try this one.

I've been drinking Fullers London Porter most of my adult life, yet they never seemt o get the recognition they deserve. I think it's a telling sign that you chose this beer. You obviously know your beer. Thanks Bill.

The wedding itself is a joke but I love what you guys did with it. And Nancy making the biscuit cake is fantastic.

First time for me commenting but I think I've heard every show, or almost every show. I think whoever chooses the music is amazing. I love what you do with the songs and the beer and I think it's a great idea.

Thanks Alan....and credit goes to Bosco for most of our music and to the rest of the beerbuzz team for their musical talents as well. I agree the music is always fun.

This is a really mild all-day-drinking beer. Very low ABV and very easy drinking too. Nice choice and I hope you do some more stouts in the weeks to come.

Chris

mybeerbuzz 29 April, 2011 11:11  

Thanks everyone...and yes Chris there will be more Stouts in the future.

This beer is great but much better on beer engine. Just my 2-cents.

Kyle

mybeerbuzz 29 April, 2011 11:27  

I agree Kyle. Even better if you sip it in a London Pub.
