The 20th limited-edition beer in our Vintage Ale series, Vintage Ale 2016 is a rich, smooth Barley Wine that promises a distinguished drinking experience. Packaged in our signature Vintage Ale gift box, it’s a special beer inside and out, perfect as a gift or to add to your own collection.
Brewed to 8.5% , Vintage Ale 2016 brings together classic British ingredients (Challenger, Goldings and Northdown) with the aromatic Nelson Sauvin hop from New Zealand – used here both for bittering and as a dry hop.
The global combination of ingredients gives rise to a rich and complex amber beer, with aromas of sherry and Cognac, and a flavour profile that picks out toasted grains and sweet cherry Bakewell Tart
A bottle-conditioned beer, Vintage Ale 2016 continues to mature right up until it’s opened. When the time comes, expect a deep amber pour with notes of sherry and Cognac on the nose, and rich, complex flavours that hint at toasted grains and sweet cherry Bakewell Tart.
