Vintage Ale 2014

Celebrating our 18th

Our 18th Vintage Ale uses three of the year’s finest hop varieties from both sides of the Atlantic. Goldings from England give subtle bitterness, whilst American varieties Liberty and Cascade are used in dry hopping to give a zesty, grapefruit aroma

A special bond

More than one head of state has referred to the ‘special relationship’ between the UK and America – and it’s a bond apparent in our 2014 vintage. Brilliantly British hops, used for bittering, join forces with American varieties for aroma – culminating in a transatlantic triumph.

Brewer's Notes

The 2014 Vintage Ale features a dense palate of marmalade flavours and toasted almonds, with tropical fruits and coconut coming through on the nose.

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

Make a date with 1845

A strong, rich and fruity ale, Fuller's 1845 was specially commissioned to celebrated 150 years of the Fuller, Smith and Turner partnership.  It's a live, bottle-conditioned beer, skilfully brewed to mature over time.

Something completely different

Get on board with Seafarers Ale

Launched in support of the UK’s leading maritime charity, Gales Seafarers made its maiden voyage in 2005. A crisp, light and quenching amber ale, it continues to be the easiest, most refreshing charity work you’ll ever do.
