Fullers Past Master Ol Burton Extra

7.3% ABV

This is the third beer/recipe from this series, so far I have, like many other bloggers, enjoyed them a lot. Old Burton strangely is my favourite, I thought the stout (number 2) would have been my favourite but this one just pips the top spot.

It has the typical Fullers marmalade scent and notes in the beer itself but it is more about the caramel this time, it is a good strong bitter but totally different from ESB. It starts off with a real hit of christmas cake before climbing with this soft chewy caramel end, lovely beer to end a day with or maybe start a night? Despite its strength this is a very smooth beer, drinkable and enjoyable.

Like the others in the series I don't expect this one to be around long, so try a bottle if you see it and let me know what you think.

  1. On that basis, I'll buy some if I see it. I was in London recently for the big demo and had a couple of quick Fullers ESBs in Euston Station before catching my train back to Merseyside: rather nice.
