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 England’s 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.
