Bottled, 500 ml (No. 92,946) from Sainsburys in Banbury. Orange amber with white head. Full, fruity maltiness, quite smooth on the palate with an easy spiciness, rounded, cake like, followed by orange juice. It is all quite subtle and tasty.

Bottle at home, from the brewery shop, during the Fullers Vintage mass online tasting - 11/12/12. Bottle #14779. Pours a slightly hazed orange brown with an off white head that quickly dissipates leaving a few small bubbles atop the glass. Nose comprises sweet sugars, toffee apple, rhubarb, prunes, orange, fruit cake and a hint of booze. Tastes of sweet toffee, sugars, bread pudding with syrup, dried fruits, caramel, touch of booze but very well integrated. Full bodied, fine carbonation, smooth on the palate. Overall a very good vintage, sweet complex and well balanced.
