3.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
After my poor year old Fullers Vitage 2011 this was great. The initial flavour was uncooked bread, and oranges. The beer poured an amber colour with a caramel, quick clearing head. The taste was spirits, warm alcohol, oranges and was malty rich, The beer was nice and will be a re buy each year now. Fullers are costing me too much!
