Vintage Ale 2006

Warmly welcomed

2006 started with a surprise appearance in the capital - a bottle-nosed whale making its way up the Thames. A new Vintage Ale emerging from Fuller’s riverside brewery was a much more familiar sight for Londoners, and welcomed just as warmly.

European union

Just like the previous year, the 2006 vintage was brewed with Fuggles hops – but this time round, Super Styrian hops from Slovenia were added to the copper.

Brewer's Notes

The duo of hop varieties in this full-bodied vintage creates a tapestry of rich, spicy flavours. Orange, citrus and fruitcake notes are all present, and are balanced well with the biscuity, creamy malt flavours to leave a soft and warming finish.

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.

Something similar

Make a date with 1845

A strong, rich and fruity ale, Fuller's 1845 was specially commissioned to celebrated 150 years of the Fuller, Smith and Turner partnership.  It's a live, bottle-conditioned beer, skilfully brewed to mature over time.

Something completely different

Ride the rapids of Wild River

Riding the wave of the US craft beer movement, Wild River is an exciting take on American Pale Ale. It’s a double-hopped brew made with several Californian hops – a golden beer inspired by The Golden State.
