Fuller's Vintage Ale 2017 50cl 8.5°
This 2017 edition of Vintage Ale champions a new American hop variety Denali, used to give the beer a citrusy, pine-like flavour and a new British malt variety Laureate.
Combined with trusty British hops Target and Soldings, our 21st Vintage Ale is a well-rounded and balanced beer with Fuller's yeast adding the orange marmalade character to it.
Vintage Ale is an exceptional beer, only available from Fuller's as a limited release of individually packaged and numbered bottles and will improve for many years to come, like a wine or whisky.
As the beer is bottle conditioned it will form a natural sediment.
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.
