COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Vintage Ale is a truly distinguished bottle conditioned beer. Each vintage is a blend of that year’s finest malt and hops, creating a unique limited edition brew. Being bottle conditioned, it is after bottling that the flavours truly begin to develop, and continue to do so well beyond the best before date that we are obliged to state.

The 2009 Vintage features Kent grown Golding Hops and East Anglian Tipple malted barly. It has an intial aroma of rich Muscavado sugar followed by a brandied caramelised

Sweet and toasty nose with a good depth. Pours a lovely deep copper with a fluffy tan head. The flavour, though not the best Vintage I’ve had, still delivers in spades - plenty of resiny raisins and buttery malts leading to a gently alcoholic finish with a lingering moerish maltiness on the back of the tongue.

The 2009 was a well done old ale. Though not complex it had mMild fruit, and noticeable carmel that gave it an above average mouthfeel. Not sweet, most drinkable.Good head.

Mmmmm...delicious beer. This is my first fresh one and it is almost as good as an aged one. Aroma was good. Roasted caramel with earthy notes. Pour was a beautiful dark gold with a thin tan ring for a head. Taste was deep roasted caramel. Huge malt bomb this beer is. Strong sweet chewy caramel. No hops detected at all. Great beer

Boutip (6374) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 4, 2010
Bottle: Poured a deep clear bright copper color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of caramelized sugar with some light toffee notes is quiet enticing and minimal hops presence is perfectly suited to this beer. Taste is also a nice mix between some sweet caramelized sugar notes with nice creamy malt backbone. Body is about average but with a nice creamy texture and good carbonation with no sign of alcohol. Very well done and I thought this was less hoppy then in prior year which suited this beer.
