Vintage Ale 2011

Made of honour

The eyes of the world were on London in 2011, with a royal wedding attracting a global audience of almost two billion. We celebrated with our own special union, bringing together the year’s finest malt and hops in a commemorative Vintage Ale.

Patience is a virtue

The 2011 Vintage Ale is ready to drink – but show some restraint, store it in the cellar for a few years, and we expect it to develop into something even more special. Early tasting has been most encouraging…

Brewer's Notes

An opening aroma of Maraschino cherries is underlain with Mandarin orange notes. These are carried through to the initial palate, enhanced with a fruity malt and warming aftertaste.

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.
