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

A special ale, years in the making

It can take a long time for beer to mature in an old whisky cask - more than two years, in the case of Brewer’s Reserve No.3. By the time it was ready, our brewers were a little greyer, a little wiser – and adamant it was well worth the wait.

Something completely different

Find a new Frontier

Bold, refreshing citrus notes from three varieties of new world hops. Brewed with decades of know-how to satisfy your thirst for discovery. This is lager. This is Frontier.
