All British affair

To mark the 50th anniversary of famous British malt variety Maris Otter, we've brewed our 19th vintage ale with all British ingredients. Home-grown Target, Northdown, Challenger and Goldings hops work with the floor-malted Maris Otter to create a well-rounded beer that's truly the best of British.

Brewer's notes

Vintage Ale 2015 sees the balance of malt and hops deliver well-rounded, complex flavours, with a fruitful aroma and a bitter finish.

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.
