COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottled, special.
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.

Bottle. Clear amber liquid with small off-white head. Aroma of bread, raw sugar, dms, raisins, toffee, toast and earth. Taste is light sweet and light bitter with notes of bread, raw sugar and toast. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Ok.

olsvammel (3063) - Örebro, SWEDEN - DEC 20, 2013
Bottle from Systembolaget. Sweet and malty smell with a hint of dried fruit. Similar taste. Feels well made and balanced but lacks something to make it interesting. Nice beer to just drink without thinking though.

mzaar (1606) - Varberg, SWEDEN - DEC 20, 2013
Flaska från SB. Mellanbrun med litet vitt skum. Doftar karamell, örter och oklar frukt. Smakar detsamma, men där finns också en stickig alkohol som inte alls är bra. Det här receptet skulle nog ha stannat i arkivet.

Senap (357) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - DEC 15, 2013
Vacker roströd färg. För att vara en strong ale så är den tämligen tam. Lättdrucken, utan allt för stort genomslag av alkoholen.

I vanliga fall skryts det med recept från 1878 och gamla handvevade kvarnar att massera kornmalten med. Det skiter uppenbarligen Fullers i, gräver djupt i receptkartoteket, och hittar en pärla från bryggåret 1966. Ju förrare desto bättre (kan man inte säga så?) gäller alltså inte i ölets förlovade tideräkning. Ser med förtjusning fram emot Fullers specialrelease från det lovande året 2017 som borde dyka upp på bolaget vilken dag som helst.

Bottled, from Systembolaget. Clear brownish amber, small head. Caramelly nose with grass and strawberry. Sweetish with medium-full body and rounded mouthfeel. Plenty of butterscotch. Warming and somewhat sticky. No winner in my books.
