Fuller's Vintage Ale 2018 50cl 8.5°
For Vintage Ale 2018 all of ingredients have been sourced from the UK. Tropical citrus and apricot flavours take centre stage delivered by Ernest and Olicana hops. Pale Ale malt from the finest Maris Otter barley combines with Crystal malt to give the beer a rich biscuit sweetness. As with every Vintage Ale, the flavours of this beer will develop for many years to com, like a fine wine or whisky.
As the beer is bottle conditioned, a natural sediment will form; so pour carefully, sit back, and enjoy the very finest of Fuller's ales.
The Fuller’s Brewery has been established more than 350 years ago. It is located in Chiswick, in west London.
In 1829, as the owners were in financial trouble, they asked for the help of a new investor, John Fuller. The partnership appeared to be arduous without the help of a master brewer and in 1845, John Bird Fuller, John Fuller’s son, associated with Henry Smith and Master Brewer John Butler to form Fuller Smith & Turner, the company which is still in place today.
Throughout the years, the company established its reputation as a great brewery and pub manager. Indeed, this is the only British brewery awarded the “Champion Beer of Britain” title for three beers: London Pride, ESB and Chiswick Bitter.
In 2005, the brewery owned more than 360 pubs in total.
