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

Ungstrup (29224) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 5, 2011
Bottled. An amber beer with a lazing beige head. The aroma has notes of straw, malt, caramel, and all spice. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, yeast, fruits, and pepper, leading to a dry bitter finish.

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 5, 2011
Bottle 50 cl. Courtesy of yespr. Bottle # 038142. Pours a clear amber with an off-white head. Sweet fruity nose with a little caramel. Medium body, roast and dark fruits, some phenols and yeast with a heavily alcoholic finish that also has a decent hoppiness. I actually think some age could soften the edges of this. 050111

oh6gdx (20299) - Vasa, FINLAND - NOV 24, 2010
Bottle #058905 (from Alko, Vaasa). Rubyish amber colour, mediumsized beige head that leaves some lace. Aroma is fruity and floral hops with some mild malts and mild toffeeish notes. Flavour is fruity hops, some sweet malts, mild liquorice and some mild herbal notes. And quite thin as well. Iíve had FVA fresh yearly since 2005, and this is the most dissappointing FVA since. Hope it will develop a bit with aging.

Clear amber beer, decent pale cream coloured head. Softish palate, smooth and a little dry. Mild carbonation. Creamy malt with unsweet toffee. Trace of marmite. Little dried fruits. Finishes creamy and dry. Not bad but hardly one of their best.

Bottle 074696
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.
