CAMRA Speciality Beer Gold Award Winner
Packed full of dark fruits, rich, nutty spiced beer and now available in bottles.
Now the clocks have gone back we’re giving ourselves permission to start looking forward to Christmas and the familiar yuletide (beer) treat that is Rosey Nosey. Heralded by its iconic flashing nosed pump clip and described by noted beer writer, Roger Protz as, “…a rich, luscious, and warming ale ideal for winter.” It’ll be available to order from early November.
A Classic Holiday Ale
Our Head Brewer, Scott, describes Rosey Nosey as having, “A brilliant bright bronze colour with a rich aroma, ripe with pear and Christmas cake fruits, balanced by biscuit malt and tangy hop resins that end in a dry, mineral finish. It’s a medium bodied beer with a lively carbonation, which is what we think makes it one of the UKs classic holiday ales.”
Where Can You Get Rosey Nosey?
In an attempt to make it ‘When’ you can get it rather than ‘If’, we have made it available in more options this year.
Christmas stocking advice
Now, such is the popularity of this seasonal brew that our online shop has sold out of bottled Rosey Nosey pretty much every year since we can remember. So, if you’re thinking of Christmas stocking this seasonal gem here are three bits of advice for online shoppers.
Why go to all that trouble?
Well…Mr Protz went on in the review we mentioned above to give it ‘4 stars’. Which, just for the record, was out of 4. Which is probably part of the reason it flies off the shelves every November and December. On top of the Protz 100% rating, Beer Advocate gives it 83/100.
If you’re looking for something different to complement your culinary Christmas celebrations then the Food Loves Beer blog suggests you, ‘…pair it with a beef rib roast, a spicy vegetable curry or any sharp cheese. All of which are complimented by Rosey Nosey’s rich malty character.’
