3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear darker amber with quickly dissapearing off-white foam head. Aroma is a pleasure mixture of barley, alcohol and hop. Taste is bittersweet, bitter dominating. Also flower and grassy notes, nice balance, good beer. (Velp 201301)

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Waitrose in Witney. Pours amber with an off white head. Mild citrus aroma. Flavours of marmalade citrus, aniseed, sherry and caramel. Tasty. The alcohol is perhaps a little over evident, but not so much as to stop this being a very good beer.

Rossa con riflessi arancioni, limpida, schiuma ocra chiara non molto persistente.
Aroma di uva passa e banana matura, quasi medicinale, qualche nota liquorosa, leggero caramello.
Al palato stesse note, con una coda amara sempre sovrastata dal maltato.
Corpo pieno, non molto carbonata.

Flesje bij slijterij in de mare vandaan. Koper met een snel slinkende ivoren schuimkraag. Geur en smaak met appelstroop, ijzer en redelijk zoet, boozy. Niet echt mooi gebalanceerd, mist wat Body.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Copper body, medium head. Why the hell is this named "Golden" anything? Dear Fullerís brewer - if you think gold looks like this then Iím afraid you have been paid in copper pennies all this time. Aroma has sugar and some fruity English hops. Too sweet, Iím already suspicious of the taste. Here it comes, the taste is overly sugary with medium level hoppiness and plenty of syrup. So sweet that it naturally covers all the booze and no wonder it creates an impression of a balanced brew to some. But itís not. Mildly jammy finish. Perhaps five years in the cellar could add something to it if it wasnít pasteurised. But it is. Their Vintage Ales are so much more vibrant when cellared properly. This, howerver, reimains a quite useless sugarbomb.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Strong ale inglese della Fullerís. Ambrata con schiuma leggera, al naso prettamente caramellata. Consistenza leggermente oleosa, pur tendendo al dolce ha una spiccata amarezza in retrogusto. Piuttosto forte e alcolica con 8.5%. Non mi ha molto convinto nel complesso.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep amber reddish color, with little head. Aroma of caramel,oak, malts, friuts fruits. Taste is the same with no hidden alcohol note. Medium body, average carbonation. Interesting beer but no superlative.
