Game Day Beer Review: Fuller, Smith and Turner 1845 English Strong Ale

Drunk on a recent Saturday night while watching the NASL's Fort Lauderdale Strikers play the Tampa Bay Rowdies at Lockhart Stadium in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.  Despite the narrow 2-1 loss to a cross-state rival, the football was good and the beer held its own, too.

Fuller's 1845 had a big, malty smell to it, mixed with dark fruits. 

Malt character predominated, but the overall taste was complex and nicely balanced: toffee and molasses stood out.  The beer was medium bodied with nice carbonation.  We'll be drinking it again: B+
