COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Much better than last year. The challenger acts as the sheriff in what could be an unruly ale. The finish is nuttier than anticipated but works wonderfully. Perfect balance. Perfect colour and head.

Get this if you see it. Not cheap but worth a go. Smooth and delicious. Nuf said.

It was delicious. I enjoyed the hops. It was smooth with a pleasant after taste.

Tasted 01/02/2009. 500ml boxed bottle from Regional Wines and Spirits. Rose gold. A hint of autolysis and hop, rich malt, a little nut and autumn fruit, balancing bitterness. Spicy warming finish. Simple. Divine. The magnificence of malt is so under-rated on this side of the planet. I’m heading out to buy some more.

Sweet malty aroma. This is pretty darn good. Malty, sweet and tasty. Excellent stuff again.

Pours hazy brown with red hints and a fluffy white head. Smells fruity and of alcohol, kind of like a barley wine. Tastes of fruitiness that moves toward grain and then hints of alcohol. Full-bodied with a velvety texture and mild mouth-carbonation, Fuller’s Vintage Ale 2008 finishes mellow.
