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.

It says ruby on the label and thatís a good reflection of the truth. Ruby to polished mahogany in colour with a skim of head and evident sparkle. Very rich aroma of plums, figs and steamed pudding. Thereís some amber resinous quality and ripe autumnal fruits as well. It really is a complex aroma. A sweet, oily body and elegant flavours. Just a suggestion of bitterness but long finishing because of the mass of malty flavours. Indeed, malt is the superstar and begs for me to have more of this.

ladne opakowanie, to przede wszystkim stylowa etykieta nawiazujaca do owczesnego piwa. Stara receptura dajes sie tu zauwazyc przede wszystkim juz po pierwszym lyku. Piwo jest tresciwe gozkie i jakby lekko stechle pachnie zarowno mokra wilgotna scierka jak i podsuszonymi morelami. Kolor ciemno bursztynowy, piwo o skromnej pianie. Delikatnie wysycone. slodowosc uboga ale suszona trawa daje znac w koncowce pozostawiajac dlugi wytrawny finisz. Calkiem inne piwo niz wiekszosc ESA

500ml bottle shared with the wife on 30th Aug 2014, drank in The Old Joint Stock, Birmingham. Really enjoyed this semi-sweet malty brew and re-living 1966 again (was too young to drink then though). Lovely colour and texture, deep, dark amber, off-white crown and a smooth feel throughout the drink. Malty molasses vie with a mixed bag of dark fruits in both the nose and taste, the alcohol well hidden within the flavours. A very good beer and one i would gladly have again and again.

Trevlig öl med något kryddig smak. Skön maltighet och lagom bäska. Fullers gör det igen. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

CanCrusher (935) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - NOV 16, 2014
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...

Erzengel (7928) - 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!
