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 a hazy red, and has an off-white head with good retention and some nice lace. Lovely fruity aroma - smells very strongly of strawberries. Intensely fruity taste - strawberries again (more like cooked strawberries) becoming just a bit more tart towards the finish, and ending on well-blended herbal hop notes. Not at all sour, though. Moderately creamy body, decent carbonation (I re-poured this into a different glass half-way through pouring it from the bottle, so the carbonation was likely reduced in the process, slighly). Very, very pleasant - probably the fruitiest FVA ever.

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.

Rodriguez (233) - Quito, ECUADOR - MAY 18, 2014
Hazy orange, complex fruity and malty flavor and aroma, very smooth. Can taste target, fuggles and Golding hops. Great beer, more like a cognac than Golden Pride. Will try it again, definitively.

radiomgb (2236) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 17, 2014
Copper in colour with a moderate off-white head, good lacing. The aroma is of alcohol, some vanilla, caramel malts and even a bit of liquorice. The flavour is of light alcohol, some chocolate, caramel malt sweetness, moderate bitterness. Lightly sweet mouthfeel, medium body, moderate carbonation. Finishes long and sweet with some alcohol warmth. Its good but like all the Vintage Ales the do get better after a few years.

Bottle no. 106077. Pours a clear ruby color with a small white head. A Fullers nose of yeast, toffee and fruit. The flavor is medium toffee, more yeast, marmalade, some really nice port elements, fruity hops, a very sweet version pushing toward a BW, a bit of hops all through. Very solid beer as always with this series.
