The 2013 Fuller’s Vintage, our 17th edition, is brewed with four of this year’s finest hop varieties: Goldings, Sovereign, Challenger and the trophy-winning Admiral. WIth a dry spring and wet summer, we have chosen a winter barley wich, when combined with our unique yeast, gives a rich and complex result.

Pinball (11928) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 28, 2014
bottle from ølbutikken i think. clear orange, smooth brown-orange head. delicate aroma of malts and fruits. Really nice aroma. Flavor is malty, wood, booze, a little bit of a taste like oranges, in fact quite a lot of bitter woody notes, much better than my expectations, tastes sort of like a really sophisticated european style barley wine. one of the better vintages, i might buy one more and see how it ages.
