The fourth incarnation of Brewer’s Reserve spent a year in the Fuller’s cellar in rare Comte de Lauvia Armagnac casks from the Bas region of France.

Alecwallace (155) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 13, 2013
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!
