COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A classic Vintage Ale with an aroma which incorporates spicy hop notes with rich fruit character and leads on to a very full malty, fruity, sweet palate which has a surprisingly clean finish coupled with a matching bitterness.
I have handcrafted this beer from the finest Fuggles, Target and Super Styrian hops, Maris Otter malted barley and of course, our unique yeast to create a truly extraordinary unique brew. - John Keeling, Brewmaster

KyotoLefty (10809) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JAN 4, 2012
Great head on a cloudy, oily-looking orange amber beer. Subtle, mellow nose, with orange, pepper, prune, caramel. Smooth and silky body. Nice caramel flavor, very well integrated, with orange, apple, spicy hops, and a nice, spicy, peppery hop finish. Soft carbonation, great body. Interesting, mellow, and well aged.

Bottle at home from my large stash of Fullers Vintages. I’ve drunk so much of the 1999 Vintage that this relatively recent 2007 was quite a surprise and very different indeed. Still quite young but it was an absolute delight. Orange/amber coloured pour with a medium white head on top. Aroma of caramel, dark fruit, almost like an aged Belgian Christmas beer. Definitely similar to Stille Nacht as the previous guy says. Tastes of caramel, dark fruit, port like, malty, spice, sweet. I could drink this every day. BEAUTIFUL!

50 cl bottle @ KBF. #86358, Rated on 27.11.2010
Sweet aroma feels belgian and has something in common with Stille Nacht. Flavour is also sweet with raisins and sugar and actually feels a bit belgian too. Needs still a year or two to get to the top!
