Batemans Rosey Nosey Holiday Ale

This 4.7% ABV holiday ale is from Batemans in Wainfleet, Lincolnshire, United Kingdom. The bottle says it complements any turkey. It is brewed using Maris Otter pale malt, crystal malt, wheat malt and English Golding hops.

The beer pours a dark copper and amber, with a tint of red. There is a short, thin, bubbly head of off-white to light tan foam. The aroma is dark fruits, sweet plums, dark cherries, caramel, and some toffee. The taste follows the aromas, but flips them. The aroma had more fruit, while the taste has more of the toffee and caramel, along with a touch of nuttiness. The beer has a grassy, dry, and moderately bitter finish. It is easy to drink and moderately carbonated.
