A tropical twist on our classic ale

A 21st should always be heartily celebrated, and Vintage Ale 2017 doesn’t disappoint - marking the occasion by introducing a brand new hop-and-malt combination to the Fuller’s family.

American hop Denali imparts pineapple, citrus and pine notes, bringing a gentle tropical touch to the Vintage Ale series for the first time, while British malt variety Laureate also makes its debut appearance in a Fuller’s beer. The result is pure poetry.

Brewer's Notes

Pouring a deep amber colour, Vintage Ale 2017 opens with distinctive citrus aromas from the Denali hop. Tropical notes play on the palate, while hints of rich orange marmalade come through from the famous Fuller’s yeast. Like all our vintages, it’s a bottle-conditioned beer that continues to mature until it’s opened.

Taste profile

Raise A Glass

Vintage Ale 2017 is the first in the series to be brewed by our new Head Brewer, Georgina Young. A key part of the brewing team for many years, Georgina officially took the reins from John Keeling in 2017, becoming Fuller’s first ever female Head Brewer

Food Pairing

The perfect match for sticky toffee pudding

The full-bodied Vintage Ale 2017 is an ideal match for the dense texture of a decadent dessert, with the beer’s sweet orange notes playing well against the rich toffee flavour of the pudding.

Something similar

A Porter that carries on tradition

A modern take on the 19th century porter style, Fuller’s rich, chocolatey London Porter recaptures the brooding beauty of pre-Victorian London. It’s evocative of simpler times but it’s a wonderfully complex pint.
