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

Malty_MacHops (640) - Eastanollee, Georgia, USA - JAN 17, 2013
Clean malty aromas of caramel, toffee, and biscuit with earthy hops. Amber brown with a quickly fading head. Balanced with sweetness up front and a bitterness in the finish. Medium to full bodied with a bitter finish.

Bottle no, 7945 purchased from the brewery. Poured well with good carbonation. Clear amber colour and white head. Hints of baked bread and peeled orange. Two years ago it was very fizzy so looking forward to my next bottle in 2016.

500 ml bottle. #077348. Courtesy of olio. The Grand Vintage Tasting.
Cloudy amber colour with a small frothy off-white head. Sugary sweetness, alcohol, berry hops, mild bitterness and some malt in the aroma. The flavour is... a bit raw? Is it possible? Hops, mild bitterness, dark fruits, sweetness and some alcohol in the flavour.

Metalchopz (2405) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 3, 2014
Purchased at the LCBO, back in the day when it came out. Best before end 2013, bottle No. 078279. Pours a slightly hazy honey-amber colour with a frothy beige head, good retention and lots of foamy lacing. Aromas of fruitcake with raisins, oranges and nuts. Mild toffee with a little alcohol. Mildly dry mouthfeel. The flavours are better blended with dates, caramel malts, hints of minty grass and pepper. Kind of a lingering feel of eating a unripened banana. Pretty nice overall and seems a little milder than older versions.

Prokroustis (689) - Thessaloniki, GREECE - SEP 17, 2014
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.

jerohen (2031) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - AUG 23, 2014
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.
