The 2011 Vintage Ale, our 15th, is brewed with some of the finest of this yearís malt and hops. The malt grist includes a portion produced by Warminster maltings, from organic barley grown by Sir James Fuller on the Nestone Park Estate. This will be married with the choicest Goldings, Organic First Gold and award winning Sovereign hops, to produce a beer with a firm malt base, marmalade notes and a satisfying bitter finish. Individually packaged and numbered, this bottle is one of only one hundred and fifty thousand produced.

Bottle from Systembolaget. Tried early 2012. Boozey smell. Rough taste with some caramel malts in the background. This beer clearly needs to mature for at least 2 years. The rough booziness overpowers the other flavours.

RumRunner101 (898) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 15, 2012
Pours hazy orange with a thin white head. Aroma isnít quite as up front as Iíd like - little bit fruity and sweet. Medium bodied, carbonation is lively and dances down the back of your throat. Sweet flavours in the body of raisins and brown sugar. The hops come out in the finish with a slight alcoholic warmth. Okay in itsí youth - laid a few bottles down to try in the future.

The aroma is nothing special with sweet corn malt and alcohol. The appearance is light amber with a large head. The taste is very malty with both caramel and biscuits. The palate is smooth. Overall not what I was expecting but still pretty good.

Dark red amber, little head that fades fast. Interesting beer but no better than the ESB. Bottle and box offer something extra, but the beer itself is a bit of a disappoitment.

Rune (9661) - TromsÝ, NORWAY - JAN 10, 2012
500ml bottle, no. 51025, at Amundsen Bryggeri & Spiseri. Large frothy beige head resting on top of a deep, dark amber coloured body. Restrained aroma of dried fruits on a semi-sweet malty backbone. Dark fruits in flavour supported by hints of dark berries, a note of almond and malty sweetness. A bit jam-like. Hop bitter ending with tingling alcohol. Nice, a bit pent-up, perhaps (Oslo, 06.01.2012)

Was hoping for more. Up front a touch of bitterness, backed by some sweet maybe caramel. Body is pretty light. Alcohol is there in the mouth, but reasonably well buried. Nice stuff, just was hoping for more. Maybe if it laid down for a bit.
