Fuller’s London Pride, London’s most famous pale ale, took the gold in the pale ale category at the 2010 Denver International Beer Competition. Fuller’s London Pride won the taste test among beer connoisseurs with its flavorful and complex malty base. London Pride offers a rich balance of hops with a fruity finish. Made with Optic pale and Crystal malt, then bittered with Target, Northdown and Challenger hop varieties that enhance the aromas, this was sure to be a gold medal winner among pale ales.
On May 1, 2010, eighteen professional beer judges and seven beer stewards participated in the 1st Annual Denver International Beer Competition. The judges awarded a total of 33 medals in ten categories. Fuller’s London Pride took first in the pale ale category over Odell Brewing Company and Great Divide Brewing Companies pale ales, which took second and third respectfully out of many different pale ale submissions.
This gold medal comes on the heels of the announcement of the new Fuller’s London Pride 11.2 oz can launch. Offering this delicious ale in a can as well as a 11.2 oz and 16.9 oz bottles, and 50L kegs, provides consumers more choice in beer, depending on the type of event they are attending. Consumers can say “so long!” to the boring domestic lager options and quench their thirst with imported ale in a can at summertime activities including swimming pools, music venues, country clubs, golf courses, airlines, sports arenas, and others that do not allow glass bottles.
