Our 12th Vintage features two of our favourite English hop varieties, Northdown and Challenger. These, combined with floor malted Maris Otter malt, produce a rich fruit aroma laced with dark orange hop notes. A full luxurious mouthfeel is finished off with a satisfying alcohol warmth.

BeerandBlues2 (13304) - Escondido, California, USA - JAN 15, 2010
Bottle. Pours hazy amber with a large, frothy off-white head, great retention and lacing. Aroma is sweet caramel and nutty malt with pine, citrus, and floral hops; fruity with light alcohol notes. Flavor is a malty and hoppy start with an alcohol and spicy hop bite, fruity with some light doughy yeast notes and chewy malt. Full bodied, warming with high carbonation and a dry finish.

3.5
bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JAN 11, 2010

3.7
Rune (12741) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 20, 2013
500ml bottle, No. 55112, beer gift from Leif, thanks. Frothy, off-white head reduced to a patchy surface. First pour is near-clear, apricot coloured, the last pour is cloudy. Dotted spots to the glass. Herbal and leafy hops to the nose mingled with mid-sweet malts. Fine taste of ripe fruits alongside citrus freshness added by honey sweetness leading to a long-lived dry, bittersweet ending. Sherry notes to the aroma and taste profile, as well. Soft and fresh on the swallow. Another well balanced Fuller’s brew (at home, Tromsø 18.05.2013).

3.9
Bov (12636) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - MAY 16, 2009
from crackedkettle.com - hazy amber-bronze colour with a poor and chaotic foam; robustly malty aroma with notes of almonds and apples; full-bodied and quite sticky; the palate is quite mellow with a solid sweetness; fair bitterness, long malty aftertaste with notes of apples and caramel - good but needs some aging
