I was first made aware of Fuller's beers by my father, who recalled that, during the Scottish and Newcastle brewery strike in the 70s, pubs in Durham stocked London Pride. My dad recommended it. Since then, I have always hunted out Fuller's ales. I like their distinctive maltiness and hops. I am not a fan of the modern, often over-poweringly hoppy, 'craft ales' and Fuller's get it about right. The bottle conditioned 1845 is a great example of their skill. Their home delivery service got me through lockdown and I even got a natty London Pride glass when the delivery was late. Keep up the good work!

Fuller`s 1845 Conditioned Ale

I had not sampled this beer for some time so decided to buy some online. Very glad i did because it is an excellent brew every bit as good as I remembered. I will be ordering more as I have consumed almost every bottle! Only downside was the courier managed to break some bottles so part of my order arrived late.

Brew Notes

Best poured slowly, 1845 delivers a sweet, fruit cake aroma, a dark tawny colour and a dry finish that sings of spices and raisin. Those fruity characteristics harmonise perfectly with the biscuity malts amid a clever and complex range of subtle flavours, the depth of which you could only find in a live beer fermented in the bottle.

Raise a Glass

Matured for 100 days prior to its release, allowing the character and depth of flavour to develop into something truly special. It’s brewed with amber malt - a popular 19th century ingredient that’s now thriving once again. 1845 is the beer that started its renaissance.
