COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle Conditioned.
The Champion theme was used once again for this classic Vintage Ale with Champion Fuggles and Champion Optic malt. Slightly redder in appearance, this ale is full of body with a sherry-like flavour.

Comes in a pretty box. Strangely fruity tasting and smells wonderful.

Beautiful red-amber color. Some alcohol nose, honey and malt. Quite bitter mouthfeel, well balanced; a honey touch; the hop is not very aromatic.

delicous. a perfect bottle conditioned ale. sweet cherry-oak malt. mild but defined aftertaste. long lasting foamy head, slightly murky amber color. a real treat.

Not bad. I was expecting better. I wasn't exactly concentrating while tasting this brew, but didn't stand up to my expectations. It was still a great beer.

I finally got my hands on some. this beer did not disappoint. the beer backs all the hype; full flavored, complex, warming. I drank it at about 58 degrees which is how i prefer a hearty beer. The last little sip i forgot to finish at the end of the night even tasted good the next morning....

Very appealing alcohol/malt aroma. Dark brownish red color, moderate light brown head. full bodied mouth feel.Dominant malt and alcohol flavours. I was somwhat disappointed with this beer. Not as flavourful as I expected it to be.

The aroma is sweet malty with notes of alcohol and caramel. The color is dark amber and it has a small fast disappearing head. The flavor is sweet and malty with strong notes of caramel.

I recently drank my last bottle and I'm looking forward to finding the 2000-2002 vintages. Full full nose and barly-winy. Very clean finish and near perfect color. I wish I had the proper glass for enjoying this one.

Toffee tasting with a welcome alcoholic bite. Someone said butterscotch flavor and I would have to agree. Full body. Cool packaging. Soon will try the 2000 and 2001.

This is the one that got me hooked on fine ale. I donít know how it could get any better than this.
