Fuller’s has a history dating back to the 1600’s London in the Chiswich district down to the Thames river. A long history of brewery houses first coined the Fullers’s Griffin Brewery, as it is known today, in 1845 with the partnership of John Fuller, Henry Smith and John Turner.
I bought this 500 ml bottle at 8.5% in a wine shop in Odense, Denmark at the price of 13 Euro. This limited edition ale had number 4309.
Brown in the color with notes of orange, a bit hazy.
A small head with very little fine foam.
A sweet and bitter aroma that comes off a bit too flat. Has some green and fresh notes to it.
Fruited, sweet and with a long after taste. Full bodied with notes of wine and nuts.
Overall rating 83 / 100
