First seen as a one-off cask release at Ealing beer festival in July 2012. Released in bottles in August 2012.
The third beer in the Past Masters series was first brewed on Thursday, September 10th 1931. The origins of the Old Burton style have changed over the course of the 20th Century, but this version is brewed to the authentic recipe - a true recreation of a wonderful long-lost beer. A rich, golden ale with a big malt character and an incredible balance of sweetness and warmth on the palate.

Theydon_Bois (6986) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAR 26, 2013
Bottle at home, from the brewery shop, 26/03/13. Pours a clear dark copper with a decent sized beige head that retains for a while then eventually dissipates to a film, carbonation evident in the form of bubbles dancing up from the bottom of the glass. Nose is toffee, dark malts, touch of honey, raisens, booze. Big malt forward taste backed uo by dark fruits, hops, brown sugar, hint of spice, toffee, dates, berry fruits. Fuller than medium body with moderate carbonation pitched well for the style and strength, sweet boozey notes in the finish. An Ok offering but probably my least favourite of this series.

hawthorne00 (2252) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 23, 2013
Bottle, 12C. Clear dark amber with an inch of off-white head that remains a coat and laces well. Aroma of toffee, fruitcake spices, boiled eggs, berries, dried orange peel. Rich but only medium bodied with a creaminess that lightens. Sweet with toffee and dark fruits melding with spices. Dries out at the end, bitterness registers as modest at first, but nags its way up though the sweetness. For a strongish Fuller’s beer it comes across as fairly nimble. Quality drop.

pivnizub (8574) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - MAR 21, 2013
Bottle: Deep chestnut-amber coloured, small - slowly collapsing - looose off-white head, a bit unclear, moderate to solid fruity-bready nose, distinctive hoppy base; moderate to solid bitter-sweet flavour, medium bodied; lingering fruity-caramelly and surely hoppy finish. Quite a good and solid brew…

Rune (7346) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAR 17, 2013
500ml bottle bought at Fullers Brewery Shop last November. Enjoyed at home celebrating the International Women’s Day. Deep dark amber coloured body. Firm, off-white head that laces well. Promising smell of earthy malts and herbal hops with fruity notes. Malty based taste character of nuts and caramel supported by prunes and burnt sugar. Malt bitter ending with a mid-dry basement touch to it. Fine bodied. A good British malty ale (Tromsø, 08.03.2013).

sebletitje (6326) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAR 12, 2013
50cl bouteille, bb 02/08/2014. Ambrée, col épais blanc. Arôme est malté moyen, caramel, fin biscuité. Palais est malté type anglais, pointe houblon. Le tout conserve un profil plus centré sur le grillé et caramel, note de grains. Le malté est bien présent sans être surfait et invite à noter un côté tirant sur un léger chocolaté finement amer, cela mis en association avec un houblonnage herbacé, finement amer et fleuri entre Goldings - Fuggles et Target.

CanCrusher (510) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - MAR 4, 2013
Bottle 0,50L. Clear amber-ruby-brown colour, with small, off-white, fully lasting, creamy head. Strong aroma of cherries, dark red fruits, malt, caramel, nuts. Full bodied, smooth beer. Taste is kinda mix of light sweet fruits and moderate bitter hops, while aftertaste turns into a heavy bitter hoppy taste and finished like that. Very good beer!
