Beer of the month – Thirst Noel
25 November 2011 / News / Food
The first of our new Beer’s of the Month is Thirst Noel from the Keswick Brewery
Obviously this is a seasonal offering and is tailored towards dark evenings by a warm snug fire.
‘A Dark Rich Malty Christmas Ale. Made using a combination of five malts and a blend of traditional and spicy hops’ – A Dark Rich Christmas Ale ABV6%
Drink Britain Website says:
‘Fantastically aromatic, with violets, cloves, cinnamon, vanilla, it’s incredible to think that this all comes from the blend of hops. The palate sports a complex mix of dark roasted malts, with vanilla coffee flavours, spicy fruitcake, and bitter coffee on the finish.
We’re in casserole country here. Or rich tangy cheeses. Or a log fire. Or a cold night…’
It might be a bit too sweet for some, but then this is a beer for Christmas. Very easy drinking with a gentle kick. We’ll try and get some additional customer feedback. Then I’m off to try another new beer. It’s a tough job and someone’s got to do it.
