Bottle no 17330, Limited No 1 Edition of this oak-aged ale. Clear copper with an initially big, lively yellowish head. Complex vanilla, palm sugar, whisky and orange nose. Vanilla blending with orangey whisky flavours. Add to that solid, harmonious hoppiness. A sophisticated innovation from Fullers- more of this, please!

Bottle, bought @ LIVA, Kolding.
... as Fullers Brewer’s Reserve...
Pours clear amber with a great, small, creamy, off-white head. Aroma is sweet, red berries, wood, light peity smokiness and some apple notes. Fine mouthfeel with just a tad too high carbonation. Flavour is sweet at first, then smoke and wood mix well with English toffee. Super long aftertaste with dry woody notes. The red berries still show up. Lovely - and with a year on it, the carbonation may have settled.

PMgep (275) - Lund, SWEDEN - NOV 21, 2008
[500 ml bottle] Nice golden color. The flavor is mild and well balanced with malt, and a smooth and frouth sweet aftertaste, but with a hint of bitterness.

KnutAlbert (6754) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 23, 2008
Cask, EBF, Copenhagen. Fluffy head. Mild vanilla aroma from the cask, not any strong whisky caracter. Very mild and smooth. A lot of fuss about this, but more because it is hard to find than because it’s a great beer.
