1966 Strong Ale, the fourth in the series, is a bottle conditioned ale brewed to a strong ale recipe from 1966 when it was drunk during the celebration of Englandís victory in the World Cup. This warming, dark ruby ale has a rich rounded flavour with notes of plum and a velvety warm caramel finish.

Deep amber-brown pour with a thin white head. The nose is full of soft sweet malt and a bit of toffee character with a little bit of sweetness. A touch of fruity yeast character along with some soft earthy hoppiness. Has a little bit of toasty sweetness and a touch of molasses along with a bit of light booziness. Quite a lovely brew.

Erzengel (7889) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JAN 17, 2015
Dark chestnut-colour, malty smooth and slightly sweetish nose. The beer starts smooth and malty. Fresh, not too sweetish, nice and intense. Dry malt, not much fruitiness, nice Ale-characteristic with a nice bitter aftertaste. The dry malt with hints of nuts remains long on the tongue. Slightly viscous without being sticky or too sweet. Easy to drink with a warming aftertaste from the alcohol, but not sharp or unpleasant. Great!

Medium, dense light-cream head, rather stable for a British ale, over amber-chestnut beer. Sweetish, fruity nose with pear, raspberry, pineapple and caramel. Bit dusty nose too... 1966? Bitter-sweet, as slightly burnt caramel or toffee. Fruity notes less apparent in the mouth, having shifted towards less sweet, if liqueurish fruit, overripe banana. After some time, a flavour reminding me of the bitter wild honey that is considered a delicacy in Italy (used in beer there too). Quite slick, near oily feel. Feels somehow a lot more carbonated than its dead looks suggest. Lame finish. If tastes quite a bit as the label unfortunately might suggest... a celebration ale from the sixties left on a collectorsí shelf...

A little but too aged as this one is just thick and heavy with some raisins, malt and coffee in the back. Drinkability is ok but I wonder how a Fullerīs beer can be a bit skunky towards the finish.

Bottle from Rudat in Dortmund. The beer has got a deep amber-brown colour with an low head and medium to smooth-flat body. Aroma of barley, malt and mild hops. Taste of gentle malt and barley, nuts, bread, biscuits cake and mild hops. Hints of mild fruits and flowers. Smooth finish and highly enjoyable. Good and solid Fullers.

Bottle 0,50L. Clear, amber-red colour with small, creamy, light brown, long lasting head. Fruity aroma of blueberries, plums, raspberries, also biscuits and caramel. Taste is medium bitter with jam note as well as some woody flavor. Finish is medium bitter with a touch of alcohol, that warms up a little. Medium to full body, oily texture and soft carbonation. Itís good, but not as good as previous from Past Masters series...
