First brewed in 1995 to commemorate the 150th anniversary of Fuller, Smith & Turner, this bottle conditioned recipe is inspired by the original Fuller's brewing books. The Amber malt and Goldings hops combine to create a delicious fruitcake aroma. As this beer is bottle conditioned, we recommend it is stored upright and poured carefully.

WOW! Superb!!! Pours a clear deep amber/caramel color with a modest tan head. The smell of roasted caramel, buttered bread, and malt smells delicious. The taste is that of burnt caramel with a biscuity and nutty flavor with a smooth and creamy mouthfeel that is out of this world! The balance of hops in this brew is a perfect match. Fuller's ESB was one of my favorites and this one I like even better! This beer suits me perfect! Cheers!

To me, beer just can't get better than this.

It's a clear, deep red-amber with a thick, dense light tan, permanent head that leaves thick lacing in layers down the glass.

The aroma is strong and thickly aromatic, toffee, fruity and with citrusy hops.

The taste, on the sweet side but nicely balanced with a hoppy bite, has elements of caramel, fruit, very floral hops with a bite, light citrus, and a hint of cinnamon and spice that lingers faintly in the aftertaste. It is wonderfully rich and complex while being incredibly balanced, drinkable, and smooth.
