Top 10 beers for winter

Fuller’s Old Winter Ale

Fuller’s Old Winter Ale

This winter offering comes from west London brewer Fuller’s and is described as a “rich warming winter ale” that is brewed to 4.8%. The seasonal and dark, old ale is sold in 500ml bottles and uses Crystal malts to give it a sweet and nutty character. This is then balanced with Target, Challenger and Northdown hops.

With a sweet nose, this is slightly more complex than Fuller’s traditional beer offering, which is what you should expect from a winter ale.
