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

maeib (8658) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2014
Bottled 04/01/14. Bottle number 4385. A deep red coloured beer with a nice white head. Strong and boozy. Nicely balanced. Malty fruits. A little yeasty. Good hops. Tasty but not got the stand out depth of flavours other vintages have had. A bit of a standard English String Ale when all’s said and done.

Unfortunately this bottle was oxidized so any notes other than it tastes like cardboard wouldn’t be useful.

pivnizub (8790) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - DEC 17, 2013
Bottle(#034551):Hazy, amber coloured with a stable creamy off-white head, quite solid fruity-caramelly nose with a bitter touch and some alcohol underneath; moderate to solid bitter-sweet flavour with a full body; nutty-almondy finish with a slightly warming alcohol-burn.Good, not overly exciting…

Hermod (3138) - Vantaa, FINLAND - NOV 29, 2013
50cl bottle, # 91556. Deep amber in color with a lasting, thin beige head. Sherry-like aroma at first, wood and sweet soaked plums, some toffee notes as well. Inviting aroma. Flavor has dark fruits, hops, caramel, dates and woody notes. Finish is quite short with dark fruits notes and some alc. warmth and hint of vanilla. Definitely not ’raw’ anymore, and has mellowed out a little. Could deliver more flavorwise, leaves one a bit empty after the inviting aroma.

Hazy bronze pour with inconsistent tan-tinted head. Aromas of caramel, dates, candied fruit. Flavors are slightly boozy, sweet malt, dates, and spice.
