Beer Fuller's, "Vintage Ale", 2010, in gift box, 500 ml
Beer brown-red color.
The taste of the beer is quite complex, sweet, but not as much as flavor. The first wave of the shades of caramel, honey, fruit (cherries, plums, figs) is followed by notes of toast, nuts, mild bitterness of hops. The finish is lingering, dry, with hints of dark fruit, honey, toast, herbal notes of hops.
Pretty sweet aroma of beer filled with notes of apples, pears, oranges, flowers, cinnamon, caramel, raisins, honey.
Beer would be great as a digestif or in combination with cheese.

In the middle of XVII century in the western suburbs of London opened a brewery "Griffin". It was a small family business, a beer brewed only for a narrow range of clients. At the beginning of the XIX century brewery business fell into disrepair, and perhaps it would be closed if it was not John Fuller, who has invested money in this business.
In 1845, on the basis of the brewery "Griffin" was formed company Fuller Smith & Turner, which actively and successfully developed, expanded, and in 1909 bought the company "Beehive Brewery" with belonging to her 34 pubs. During the XX century, Fuller Smith & Turner continued to develop in the same direction, and today this thriving company owns several factories, more than 360 pubs and bars, six hotels and nearly two dozen hotels across England.
In the product portfolio of the company - 12 beer brands, has repeatedly won high awards at international exhibitions and competitions. And one of the brands - "London Pride" - was twice awarded the title of "Champion Beer of Britain", awarded on an annual Great British Beer Festival. This result can not boast of any brewery in England. The main mission of the company is: "Always and everywhere be the standard of quality, high quality service and pride in his work!"
