3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle (bought from the Fullers shop at the brewery, old rating). Deep copper colour with a beige small foamy and bubbly head. Aroma is fruity, mild earthy and floral notes as well as some nice maltyness. Flavour is crisp sweet and bready maltyness along with some fruity and floral notes. Also mild berries and spices in the finish.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled, 500ml from Sainsburys in Banbury. Reddish brown with beige head. Darker malty flavours, a touch sweet with a slight grainy, tinny note. However a fruity malt flavour persists, with some dark berry notes, quite strong on the palate with a floral quality. Not bad at all.

Bottle, poured a darkish copper with an off-white bubbly head. Aroma was fruity and malty. A light smooth mouthfeel, warming malt flavours with a fruitiness in the background. Easy to drink and enjoyable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle from Sainsburys. Chestnut colour wth thin beige head. Brown sugar, raisins and toffee on the aroma, which I quite liked. Good hops as well. Toffee dominates throughout. Smooth i mouth with toffee hop on end. Fine, quite drinkable and I quite like Fullers bottled beers especially the stronger ones

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
A sessioin beer. Goof looking clear red beer with a small but creamy tan head than vanishes, leaving little lacing. Toasted malts and adequate hoppiness, but thin in the mouth and not a great deal of character. These are the guys who make 1845 abd a thoroughly amazing vintage ale, so I somehow expected more even from a low alcohol session brew.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. Picked up a set from sainsburies of fullers autumn rage. This had this honeydew and some other warming fellow, but it also had LONDON PORTER! so look out for it if your in the shops. Aroma is almost dominated by a honey smeel mixed with malts and i can see the oats also. Taste is not as full as aroma, with a decently bitterness on the finish, though goes well with the aroma. A different to usual beer from fullers, however within the next week im sure the porter is about to blow it out the water!

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Very nice toasty nose with hints of cinnamon and apple. Reddish (duh!) with a slightly thin but pleasant coloured head. Biscuity is correct, but a bit thin in a way. Not disappointing as such as it is well crafted and refreshing, but not as good as stablemates ESB or London Porter for example. Still, I havenít had a bad Fullers beer - theyíre my favourite pommy brewer.
