What about the beer?
Colour is bright dark orange with a finger-thick white head. Aroma has malts, caramel and some sweet fruit. Taste begins with bittersweet malty bite. Caramel malts dominate with some sweet citrusy flavour. Towards the end sweet caramel flavour gets joined with gentle fruity bitterness. Aftertaste has sweet fruity malts and slightly bitter alcohol.
Shortly put, simple and rather fine Bitter. Classic quality brew with malty caramel lead and fruity bitter side tones. No room for any disappointment here. Surprisingly, it took this long for the first Fuller’s brew to show up here. But this won’t be the last.


Classic English ale from the 1970’s needs to be paired with classic English 70’s rock. And to push any coincidence aside, another thing that connects these two is London. Iron Maiden seemed a bit too rough choice and they have already brewed their Trooper with Robinsons.—
