4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Appearance: deep orange golden colour, fairly long lasting white foamy cap Ė beautiful.
Aroma: malty, with hints of orange and mild spices (nutmeg, coriander), some alcohol.
Taste: quite malty, but very refreshing (almost ďlightĒ) due to the strong orange flavour, and a mild sweetness.
Body: quite sparkly, with heavy malt body.
Aftertaste: recurring orange taste, some malt, lightly acidic.
Drinkability: it is a very drinkable beer, but you can definitely tell youíve had a 8.5% beer after one glass

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.

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.

Clear amber orange, small off-white head. Nose is malty, fruity and spice notes, touch of alcohol. Flavor is dense malt and caramel, almost chewy, some fruity notes. Finish has a nice Goldings bitterness and an alcohol bite. Lingering caramel and malt, boozy warmth. Lots of alcohol, but it balances out.

Pours amber. Taste has grass, hops, a little bit of caramel. Just a slightly sweet taste, not much alcohol despite the content. A little bit bitter towards the end, in a very welcome way!
