3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A Mes rate. Bottle at Chris O’s pre NYE tasting. Amber with a thin off white head. Looks like most Fullers Vintage ales. Cheap single malt aroma with a little soap. Really not working for me. Mellow whisky flavour that seems in no way integrated with what seems like a fairly standard variant of the vintage ale underneath. Boring finish with some wooden accents. Feels like a poor attempt to me.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. Clear amber, rich head. Oaky vanilla aroma. Sweet with strong whisky flavour. Solid caramelly body with that does not marry well with th whisky, making the beer somewhat one-dimensional.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle #12107. High fluffy off-white and lasting head. Lovely clear reddish amber body. A bit sour lemon vinegar aroma plus of course whisky. Whisky more present in the flavor which is smooth butter caramel. Low carbonation and a short sweet aftertaste. Fair amount of alcohol.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at Chris o New Year tasting 08/09. Orange citrus aroma I thought it was pretty good. Typical good Fullers aroma, yes some whisky. Bit hot on finish, it’s pretty good. Finish isn’t as good. But as I didn’t expect to like it that much as I am not a fan of most whisky aged beer, I thought it was likeable and if i see it again at a sensible price, I’d buy it.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Beautiful amber color; generous head. Mild caramel aroma, warming but nothing special. Good body strength, caramel flavor, residual sweetness, correct bitterness, maybe a touch of wood. Quite well brewed, but ordinary.
