COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle Conditioned.
50,000 bottles were brewed using a traditional recipe of Target, Challenger and Northdown hop varieties. The taste is rich with notes of marmalade, raisins and Christmas cake; the spicy hops well balanced with a pleasant bitterness.

Amber color with a white head. The taste is sharp with a light malty flavour. The alcohol makes this beer feel sharp and kind of dry on the palate.

Bottle @ Akkurat, Stockholm. Vertical tasting -97, -00, 02 and -03 with official representatives from the brewery. 3rd one ever held by Fullerís
Feels a bit young and undelveloped. Rich in appely tastes - both the green variety and red winter apples. Not bad, but to much alcohol taste to it still. Will most likely develop.

Garrat (1254) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - JAN 12, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2005 A heavy and strong ale bursting with malt and fruit,alcohol feels a bit harsh this young,but I am sure this will only get better and smoother with time.A keeper for sure.
