A clear red/amber with small head. Aroma is a lovely mix of bread and a floral tang - a great sniff! With the taste, the bitterness comes through more than the sweet malt, but work together well and are both present in the finish. The body is quite light, but not watery and carbonation is present. Overall I would say this is a well balanced and wonderfully tasty brew.

Bottle at the Dickens. Massive beer. Aromas of dough, caramel, hints of alcohol and flowers. Taste is sweet, with light sour and bitter notes, and very long length. Palate is creamy, and full bodied. Amber, with a frothy head.

A deep amber coloured beer with a thin, beige head. There are caramel, alcohol and honey in the aroma. The taste is sweet and malty with notes of orange and bread. The texture is oily, the finish is long and bitter-sweet. It’s a good one! It will be one of my favourite beers!

Reddy amber, small tan head. Clear, flat.
Beautiful fruity/caramel malty aroma.
Intense peppery bitterness throughout, which slightly masks some fruity flavours.
Medium palate, enough carbonation.
Very good, a little too far towards the hopiness for my liking but quite well balanced. One of my favourites.

Brown 500ml bottle, best before 18 Dec 09, drank on a cold semi-sunny Sunday afternoon in Nov 09. Poured into a bateman’s branded UK pint sleeve.
Looked good, a creamy coloured foaming head sat on top of a dark mahogany, clear body.
Toasted malts and rich molasses hit my nose, toffee and treacle but without a sweetness, more a prosperous, well-healed, confident air about it. In short, it smells like a rich persons tipple.
That richness carries on into the flavours, very oak wood rather than plywood, delicious, sumptuous and very moorish. I almost forgot it is 8.5%ABV, no wonder it tasted so full, warming and luxurious.
There are few beers in the world better than a well made English Strong Ale and this is up there with the best, I take my hat off to Fuller’s, this is one well crafted beer and well worth the extra couple of pence I paid for it.
