Fame and fortune

It might be an unlucky number for some, but even the most superstitious connoisseur would struggle to find fault with our 13th Vintage Ale. The beer became the collection’s first major award winner.

The year’s best beer

The 2009 vintage was, as ever, well received by the Fuller’s faithful - and it drew plaudits from further afield too. It was voted ‘Best New Release of 2009’ by the World Beer Awards’ judging panel.

Brewer's Notes

The aroma of the 2009 Vintage Ale picks out orange notes and rich marzipan character. On the palate, it’s full and well rounded, showing some ‘sherryfication’ and slight caramelised notes - but the warming alcohol finish is still highly prominent.

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.
