Vintage Ale 2008

A classically British beer

Our 12th Vintage Ale combines two of our favourite English hop varieties, Northdown and Challenger, with floor-malted Maris Otter barley. It’s classically British, and classically Fuller’s.

Stock up

A year to forget for financiers, 2008 signalled the start of a worldwide recession. The year’s Vintage Ale still represents a great investment though, as it continues to mature over time.

Brewer's Notes

This vintage produces a rich fruit aroma laced with dark orange hop notes. A full luxurious mouthfeel is finished off with satisfying alcohol warmth.

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.
