Well then, another beer from Fuller's - one of my favourite breweries from England. Here we go;

The beer pours a amber color with a nice white/beige head that later settles to a nice, tight, lid of foam. The bottle is clean and good looking as always from these brewers.

Aroma holds some nice malty notes with hints of toffee or caramel. There are also some slightly flowery notes from the hops. Nice, but nothing special really.

Taste is better though! Lots of malts, this beer is very malt dominated and quite sweet actually. There are also some of those earlier mentioned, slightly flowery, hops in there! In general this is a very warming beer, would be perfect on a cold winters day. The mouthfeel is quite silky, almost oily, nice!

In general, a good strong ale from Fuller's, and quite some value for the money around since it costs only 17.90 SEK which is slightly less than 2 USD.

Grabbed this one at a pub in Paddington. Thin beige cap over a bronze, clear beer. Decent retention with some clinging bubbles. Super fruity aroma, dried fruit like raisins and figs, along with a nearly tropical character and sturdy biscuit malt base. Solid bitterness didn't get in the way of fruity and malty flavors, as well as a bit of alcohol. Nicely balanced between hops, malt and yeast. A bit bready, biscuit, slight caramel, dried fruit. Full bodied with low carbonation, a bit drying, malty texture. I enjoyed this quite a bit. I'd love it if this was easier to get on the other side of the pond.

500 mL bottle poured into a straight sided glass.

Appearance - Deep golden body. Big off white head. Retains forever. Clings inside the glass.

Smell - Sweet smelling. Fruity and malty. Caramel and raisins, but it's a lighter fruitiness than other barleywines.

Taste - Pretty hoppy. Right up front. Sweet pale malts. Grapefruit hops. Fruity, caramelly, and sweet into the finish, which has a hop bite.

Mouthfeel - Sweet and medium heavy. Well carbonated.

Overall - Very flavorful, but pretty sweet.
