11.2 oz bottle served in as snifter at about 48F.
Poured clear, deep amber in color, with a thin but modestly durable off-white head. Mostly caramel malt in the nose, and that seems for a moment to be what you get in the flavor too. But wait, there's more. A nearly equal amount of earthy/spicy hops kicks in, partly taming the sweetness and, eventually, dominating the aftertaste and creating hints of peat. True to style, this one is a tiny bit more earthy than ideal for my taste.

O: tasty, easy drinking, session beer, with enough complexity to hold a beer geek's interest.

I've heard a lot about Fullers, can't believe it's taken me this long to try one. I didn't really know what to expect, so I popped the cap and poured into an imperial pint glass. The color is a beautiful orange with a sticky film on top. Smells much less hoppy than I expected, very bready and malty. After tasting... oh yes, this is a good one. It's malt-forward with some great bread and toffee/caramel notes (did I mention caramel is my favorite flavor in beer?). The bitterness on the back end keeps it well rounded and balanced, but I'm getting no distinguishable hop taste. Clearly they added little to no late hop additions and it REALLY works here.

This will be in my regular line up, especially at $3.50 a bottle. I believe this would also be a great beer to people new to the craft world. A great example of how beer should be.
