Gr0ve (2132) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 22, 2006
500 ml bottle. Brown coloured and crystal clear. Tall fluffy white head. Raisiny sweet marzipan aroma. Crisp malts. Sharp acidic hop flavours at first, then mellows out a bit, but lasts all the way towards the end. Lots of hops here, definitely British hops, that infuse the otherwise malty ale. Nutty and malty flavours. Characterful ale.

lagomswedish (213) - UmeŚ, SWEDEN - DEC 3, 2006
From a 500ml bottle. Pours light brown with solid tan head. Extremely buttery, making the mouthfeel quite fatty. Thick medium roasted malt toffee taste and a bitter finish. Have I mentioned the butter? You could almost spread this beer on your toast. Not my favourite Fullers, but an interesting ale!

ako (166) - Turku, FINLAND - DEC 2, 2006
Amber, firm head. Aroma a bit buttery, quite sweet. Flavor goes with aroma, just adds a touch of bitterness. Nice full-bodied ale, not very wintery, though. As usual, Fullerís doesnít disappoint.
