73Not the most complex sample I've tasted of this successful, deep amber/reddish beer, which can age beautifully to become even more malty-dry and sherry like.
Fuller's Brewer's Reserve
88Wonderfully packaged, typically professional, oak-aged beer from Fuller's that tends to grow on you.
78A delicate but tasty beer designed to draw lager drinkers into the ale fold, using American Liberty hops for a citrus character and Czech Saaz for soft bitterness.
Fuller's Gales HSB
74A full-flavoured, nicely balanced, deep amber-red beer, perhaps not quite as sweet as in the days when it was brewed at Gale's in Horndean.
Fuller's Gales Prize Old Ale
85This is the last batch of Prize Old Ale brewed at Gale's, now packaged at Fuller's in a bigger bottle than before and with a conventional cap rather than a cork. It much more lively and acidic than pr...
Fuller's Gales Swing Low
78An enjoyable quaffing ale with plenty of interest for its strength and fine clean flavours. Now brewed by Fuller's at Chiswick since the closure of the Gale's brewery.
Fuller's Golden Pride
81A very well-balanced and smooth barley wine, the brewery-conditioned brother of Fuller's bottle-conditioned Vintage Ale.
Fuller's Jack Frost
78Beer with blackberries, but still very much a beer and not a gimmicky drink. Clever use of the fruit – to enhance the natural beer flavours rather than dominate them.
Fuller's London Porter
85A rich and satisfying porter, created in the 1990s and stamped with the Fuller's hallmark of quality.
Fuller's Mr Harry
78A full-flavoured, robust beer with the distinctive Fuller's hop thumbprint. Probably good with roast beef.
Fuller's Organic Honey Dew
73An easy-drinking golden ale that is very versatile and accommodating when it comes to food pairing.
Fuller's Red Fox
80A perfectly balanced, biscuity autumnal ale. Too bitter for drinking with puddings but otherwise an interesting beer to experiment with food-wise.
Fuller's Vintage Ale 2005
83An easy-drinking (for its strength), complex bottle-conditioned ale with a lighter finish than anticipated.
Fuller's Vintage Ale 2006
80This year's model is not quite as sweet as some previous offerings (the hops this time are Fuggles and Styrians). It's very good already but needs time to mellow.
Fuller's Vintage Ale 2007
88One of the highlights of every year is the release of Fuller's Vintage Ale. This year's brew has a prominent hop character that is likely to change considerably over time.
Fuller's Vintage Ale 2008
81As classy as ever, but perhaps not the most complex of Vintage Ales for a few years. It'll be interesting to re-taste in a year or two's time.
Fuller's Vintage Ale 2009
82A bit sticky and sweet at this early stage in its long life, but already a beer to seek out. It will dry and improve in time.
