COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottled, Released August 2012.

The 2012 Vintage Ale, our 16th, is brewed with three of this yearís finest hop varieties including, Goldings, award winning Sovereign and Target hops. These combined with our unique yeast and organic barley grown by Sir James Fuller on the Neston Park Estate result in a wonderful limited edition brew that has a luxurious flavour.

Individually packed and numbered, this bottle is one of only one hundred and twenty five thousand produced

Although we are obliged to state a best before date of 2015, like a fine wine or whisky, this mellow golden ale will improve with age for many more years

Being bottle conditioned, the beer will form a natural sediment, so pour carefully, sit back, and enjoy this, the very finest of Fullerís ales.

Bottle shared in London - many thanks to Daniel. Pours lightly hazy orange-gold with a creamy, white head. The nose suggests mild oxidation, marmalade, crackers, wood. Medium sweet flavour with jammy citrus, mild caramel, pale bread, golden raisins. Medium to full bodied, lightly oily, with fine carbonation. Lightly warming in the finish, with more ripe, jammy citrus fruits, light caramel, more pale bread. Very good stuff.

slowrunner77 (11917) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JUN 7, 2016
Holding up well. Midpack in a 6 year vertical, but only because everything was still solid. No oxidation to speak of, hops are close to dead and gone, if they were ever really there to begin with. More toffee and breadier than the 2 older versions. still tons of dark fruit with a warming finish.
