COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
I have crafted the 2010 Vintage with the highest quality Tipple malted barley for the second year running. This aleís 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 Fullerís yeast strain we expect this beer to mature into another íClassicí Vintage! 125,000 bottles produced

Pours copper colored with about a inch of head. Aroma has a malty caramel character. Flavor is medium sweet with still medium hop bitterness to the finish. Caramel malts, alcahol bite. Fizzy carbonation, full bodied and oily texture. Overall a really enjoyable beer in the end of long day, it has as strong yet balanced character.

Very dark amber colour with a big off white head. Bready and nutty malty aroma with lemon and melon. Full, warming body. Really nice bready and sweet flavour along with lemon, orange, brown sugar, mandarin. Delicious.

Bottled from biernavigatie.nl, bottle number 51851, tasted in 2014 (i.e. 4 years old). Hazy orange/amber colored, small off-white head. Nose of caramel malt and English hop varieties, some spices, orange, and a hint of Christmas pudding. Hopbitter flavor, surprising considered both the style and age, caramel malts, typical Fullerís Vintage Ale flavor, probably the yeast strain, alcohol presence, some fruity esters, Christmas pudding again. Lasting bittersweet finish. Not the best of the Vintage series, but still i really enjoyed finishing the bottle. Great stuff, which perhaps i should have aged for a few years more.

Amber colour, clear, no head, fruity orangey malty aroma. Taste of fruitcake, a bit sticky, hops, caramel malt. Nice, but cloys a bit more than the 2012.
