Brewed with well water (the original well at the Old Brewery, sunk in 1758, is still in use, with the hard well water being drawn from 85 feet underground); best barley malt, yeast and aromatic hops; fermented in ‘stone Yorkshire squares’ to create a full, rounded flavour and after-taste.

AAEA (102) - California, USA - JUN 4, 2014
550ml ($5.99) Little expensive for what you’re getting. still a good beer. taste is honey ~ish malts but weak 5% makes this a borderline non man beer. worth trying out once.

darkseduction (583) - Zweibrücken, GERMANY - MAY 22, 2014
Flasche 355ml. Schönes antikes Etikett. Im Antrunk wie erwartet obergärig, leicht säuerlich spritzig. Schöne Karamellmalznoten. Süffig, erinnert stark an Düsseldorfer Altbier. Hopfennoten sehr dezent, kommen bei Fullers ungleich schöner zum Vorschein. Alles in Allem solide, sehr begrüßenswert die traditionelle Herstellungsweise.

ruigo (1037) - PORTUGAL - MAY 11, 2014
Shared a 355ml bottle from a friend. Pours a hazy dark copper colour with a thin off-white lacing. Aroma is malty, toffee, some caramel and wood. Soft carbonation and light to medium oily body. Taste is more bitter than sweet, but the caramel is present. Overall, a very decent beer.

Garrold (1149) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 6, 2014
Bottle from Blacker Hall Farm Shop, near Wakefield. Clear, amber colour. Film of off white head. Sweet malt. Toffee. Red fruit. Some butteriness. Taste starts off sweet, then light fruit bitter. More of the butter. I spent my first 20 years of beer drinking, on beer like this. It tastes ordinary...
