Bottle 500 ml # 058814
Aroma: solid blend of caramel with sweet plum, hinted with hop laced apricot.
Appearance: poured as clear amber with medium plus bone white top. Pleasant look of lace on glass walls.
Taste: soft sweet fruity syrupy base with light hop hinted backing. Alcohol quit muted, quiet different than previous renderings.
Palate: medium bodied with average carbonation, average lifespan

mile (2887) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 15, 2013
Bottle. Amber, small to average and fully diminishing head. Moderate malty and sweetish aroma, caramel, some caramel and some dark fruitiness, faint alcohol. Body is medium to heavy, malty and sweetish flavor, some caramel and some dark fruitiness - berries, light hoppyness and faint alcohol. Finish is average to long, malty and lightly sweetish, light caramel and light fruitiness - berries, some herbal hoppyness and light alcohol. Quite light-bodied for strong ale. Thanks to to hoppyness and alcohol in the finish this one is not too sweet.

Fuller's håller alltid vad dom lovar, en härligt hög lägsta nivå. Smakar precis som en engelsk Ale ska göra och när Sverige slagit Portugal ikväll kommer jag gå in och höja betyget avsevärt... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

fantti (680) - FINLAND - NOV 15, 2013
Kaatuu tuoppiin punaruskeana ja kirkkaana, vaahto on todella muhkea ja pumpulinen. Upean näköinen olut. Hajussa on paljon perinteistä karamellia ja toffeeta sekä viljaista mallasta, mutta myös britti-barley winelle tyypillistä marjaisuutta, puumaisuutta ja hieman hedelmäisyyttäkin. Jonkin verran karkeutta tuntuu nenään, muttei häiritsevästi. Maussa sama linja jatkuu, karamellia ja marjaisuutta sekä puumaisuutta löytyy, mutta humalointi on huomattavasti vahvempi kuin "perusversiossa" eli Golden Pridessa. Jonkin verran tässä on myös samaa karkeutta, joka korostuu humaloinnin myötä. Suutuntuma on melko täyteläinen ja kuten sanottua, melko runsaasti humaloitu. Ihan tasapainossa ei tämä kuitenkaan tunnu olevan. Melko hyvä vahva britti, mutta hieman raa’an oloinen. Humalointia tuntuu olevan melko reilusti.

mikkopen (820) - Oulu, FINLAND - NOV 5, 2013
500 ml bottle. Clear coppery colour, thin but creamy off-white head. Aroma of dried fruits and caramel malt. The flavour is caramel-malty, with woody and toasted notes and dried fruits. The finish is nicely bitter, a little herbal, with warming alcohol. Very tasty and balanced.

esox (1027) - Oulu, FINLAND - NOV 4, 2013
Bottled. Clear, dark amber to copper colour, creamy tan head. Complex aroma has apricots, raisins and strawberries. Floral and delicate, almost perfumy hop notes. Yeast adds even more to the perfumy/fruity notes. Lots of biscuity and dark caramelly malts. A hint of rhummy alcoholic sweetness in the background. Malty-sweet taste has dark caramel and biscuity melanoidins. Lots of raisiny/apricoty fruitiness and some alcoholic warmth in the drying finish. Nice, slightly woody and quite strong bitterness. You can taste the alcohol as a slight warmth and fermented fruitiness. Full bodied, slightly oily and low carbonated texture. Well balanced strong ale. Enjoyable now, probably even better in a year or two.

richc (239) - Bolton, Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - NOV 3, 2013
Rich toffee and caramel aroma with hints of orange plus some slightly hot alcohol notes. Flavour adds a moderate balancing bitterness. I think this might age rather well.

olio (5951) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 2, 2013
50 cl bottle.
Pours dark mahogany color with a medium sized head. Aroma is surprisingly fruity, some caramel, sweet malts, hay and hops. Flavor is also quite fruity, some grape fruit notes, faint caramel malts, toffee and wood notes. Medium carbonation, bitter malty palate, not really that tasty this fresh, hope it gets better with age.

RexTalionis (2356) - FINLAND - NOV 2, 2013
Bottled. Pours clear copper in color with a creamy whitish head. Nutty vinous notes in aroma, hard butterscotch too and slightly burnt breadyness in aroma. Smooth mouthfeel. Dry too. Vinous and fruity bready notes in taste. Light and quite muffed cinnamon spicyness in the background. Easy to drink and quite good in taste, but lacks something that would make this brew remarkable.
