Nose
Instantly fruity – soft tropical fruits, red berries and tart, smoky oranges – but also malty and a little bit chocolatey. Well-rounded hop resins soon make their presence known.
Palate
Notably spicy, with a liquorice-like, tangy bitterness leading the way. What else is in the mix? Marzipan; tingly warmth; oranges; vinous raisins; and a silky malt richness.
Finish
Warming with a smooth, soft bitterness, mellow citrus fruit and lots of lingering hops.
Comment
One 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.
