Vintage Ale 2003

True British bottle

Sports’ fans might remember 2003 as the year England showed nerves of steel to win the Rugby World Cup. For ale aficionados though, the year’s big British triumph was this exceptional vintage ale.

A traditional recipe

Our 2003 Vintage Ale was brewed to a traditional recipe, using Target, Challenger and Northdown hop varieties. Designed to develop flavour over a number of years, the 2003 vintage promises great drinking even now.

Brewer's Notes

The taste is rich with notes of marmalade, raisins and Christmas cake; the spicy hops well balanced with a pleasant bitterness.

Food Pairing

The ultimate beer for a decadent dessert

Golen amber in colour with aromas and flavours of nuts, toffee, caramel and fruit (particularly orange). Its full body will match the dense texture of the pudding with the beers' sweetness complementing the toffee and the overall sweetness in the dessert.
