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

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.

  14. 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.
