The marmalade in Fullers

Has anyone cracked that gorgeous marmalade taste that you get say in London Pride. It is just in the yeast or is the water profile the secret :-k

Can’t say i know what flavour you mean, london pride is a bag of diacetyl lol. But yeah, probably yeast, the recipe is fairly traditional i think.

Marmalade in London Pride? Can't say I've ever spotted it. You've given me an excellent reason to try a pint and think 'Marmalade' while supping it!

Could it be from hops?
I'm just here for the beer.

My speculation is that it's the yeast. I'm also aware that none of the retail yeasts purported to be the actual Fuller's strain give the desired marmalade characteristic. I currently have to drive just under 120 miles to find any of the Fuller's beers. ESB has been along time favorite of mine.

supposed to be the yeast, bengal lancer is the best example of "marmalade" I have tasted I think. Also that NEIPA that wasn't really a NEIPA they did with Cloudwater a year or so ago was a very good example.

I wonder if it's in conjunction with the hops they use as well though
Planned: Green Hop ale
Fermenting: Nothing
Bottled: Home grown Halletau Mittelfruh golden ale, centennial golden ale, Brown Kolsch, Strong Burton with Brett C

I get marmalade from Fullers ESB, love the stuff. I think it's from the yeast, as i've managed to get some of that character using whitelabs 002.
