COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
I have crafted the 2010 Vintage with the highest quality Tipple malted barley for the second year running. This ale’s main hop character is derived from traditional Golding and Fuggles hops and further enhanced with Dry Hopping, using a blend of the choicest Golding and Target hops. Coupled with the unique Fuller’s yeast strain we expect this beer to mature into another ’Classic’ Vintage! 125,000 bottles produced

Christian (11804) - Odense, DENMARK - JUL 20, 2011
July 2011 - on a summer evening, looking for something other than summer beer. Amber with a small ivory coloured head. The aroma has lots of fruity esters, dried apricot, orange, tangerine, raisin, some biscuit-y malt and sherry and alcohol. Sweetish fruity flavour with dried fruits and orange peel, plenty of alcohol, but not in an unpleasant way. I’m in a good mood or this is an excellent vintage...

Beautiful dark amber color; creamy head. Nice malt and caramel aroma, with traces of yeast, then followed by some light cabbage. Quite strong body, and strong caramel flavor; limited sweetness; also the bitterness is quite high; but there is a trace of vegetables, and dust. The alcohol can be perceived too much in the final. Average booze.

Näitä Fuller’s Vintage Aleja en olekaan aikaisemmin maistanut. Tämä yksilö on vuosimallia 2010 ja lähti matkaani Tampereelta työreissun yhteydessä viime vuoden puolella. Sen jälkeen pullo on majaillut kaapissani odottamassa tätä hetkeä. Väriltään olut on kuparinen, mutta hieman punertava. Vaahto on valkoista. Tuoksu huokuu makeutta ja tuokin mieleeni jopa dipat ja barley winet. Pieni alkoholin töllähdys lennähtelee nenuuni lasista myös. Muita nenämakuja ovat hedelmäisyys, toffee, rusina, hunaja ja ruusunmarjatee. Suumakupuolella tulee esiin kuivaa katkeruutta, mutta myös happamuutta. Maussa on sitrushedelmiä, sitrushedelmänkuoria ja hieman toffeeta. Lämmetessä rusinaisuuskin tulee taas esiin. Pyörähtää mukavan liukkaasti suussa ja on pehmeäkin. Etenkin tuoksu miellyttää monimuotoisuudellaan. Saattaa olla, että jos tämän on tuopista nauttinut, on missannut osan tuoksun vivahteista. Itse nautin tämän aromilasista. Parempaa kuin odotin.

grunx (367) - - JUL 5, 2011
Aroma agradable de caramel, mel i malta. Molt cremosa per només tenir 8,5 graus. Final lleugerament alcohòlic. Li falta ampolla. Cervesa de guarda. Millorarà amb els anys.

caralkaline87 (435) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 23, 2011
Pours moderate copper-amber and transparent with a small off-white head. Nose is sweet and bready and quite strong. Flavor brings out hops more strongly, though not in an overwhelming manner. Good beer.

Chevy Chase Wine and Liquors, DC 500ml ($4.49): Yes, I got this super cheap for some reason, and I ain’t saying not a single bad thing about that. Anyway, it pours a light brownish amber with an off-white head. Aroma is thick; there is a ton of dark fruits, caramel malts, butterscotch, and sugar. Taste has some bitterness and the hops make themselves known at the finish and the bitterness lingers on for a bit. As it warms, it gets to be really good. Carbonation is light and mellow. High alcohol is noticeable, but actually in kind of a good way. There is a lot going on in this here beer, but it is still not my favourite in the style; still, it is quite good.

Rosebud butternuts (2396) - Denton, Texas, USA - JUN 11, 2011
bottle from market street in coppel. poured a beautiful copper with a white head. aroma was fantastic with caramel, toffee, citrus, and a slight peppery note. flavor was much the same, but the spice had more kick. I think that I am really a fan of fuggle hops in this one. this is one of my favorite ones to date without much age on it.
