A lasting legacy

In the decades to come, 2012 will be remembered as London's golden year – a summer of success and celebration. In amongst the gold medals and the Diamond Jubilee was a copper-coloured triumph of our own.

A year to savour

A memorable year in every respect, 2012 saw our Vintage Ale series mark its 15th anniversary. A great-tasting brew, this is a beer worth stocking up on – 2012 deserves savouring again and again.

Brewer's notes

An aroma of ripe autumnal fruits, with slight notes of rose hips, leads on to a smooth almost lush palate with just a hint of spice. There is pleasant hop bitterness, finished 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.
