(6.5% English make enjoyed from bottle) A premium beer in Fuller’s line up, delicious strong ale bottle conditioned to bring to a proper strength. Amber in color with frothy head on pour, down to dusting and rim on glass. A wonderful, baked sweet flavor with lingering strong hoppy ale taste.
This is one of my favorite beers, and comes as a strong recommendation. So much so I brought it home for my brother to enjoy. Usually available in bottle form at Fuller’s Pubs, for example the Viaduct Tavern or Artillery Arms but I get it at the shop for home. If in a Fuller’s pub, its a safe bet to go with the ESB on pull (extra special bitter) as that is a beautiful beer, and my first choice in a Fuller’s pub. I enjoy this from the bottle, and coughing up the extra 40 pence as it usually comes in above 2 pounds, but worth every pence.
