Better than ever

Like all our Vintage Ales, this 2007 edition is bottle-conditioned to develop fuller flavour over a number of years. It’s probably coming into its peak just about now…

Brewer's Notes

With an aroma incorporating spicy hop notes and rich fruit character, the 2007 Vintage Ale leads on to a malty, fruity, sweet palate. There’s a surprisingly clean finish, coupled with a matching bitterness.
