Ridgeway Brewing Warm Welcome Nut Browned Ale

Ridgeway Brewing is located in the United Kingdom and every winter they put out a large line up of holiday themed brews. This is one of those brews that my brother was kind enough to give me for Christmas this year!! Here are my thoughts on this one...gotta love the label too:



Pours into my glass a dark copper color with a fizzy white head that lingers for a bit and then fades. Good clarity as well. Aromas start out with a nice light roast and some toasted malt accents. Nutty notes throughout along with a mellow fruit tone. Slight sweetness.

First sip brings smooth crisp malts upfront, lightly toasted and semi-sweet as well. Nutty flavors roll across the palate with a fruity undertone as well. Lingering nutty roast on the back end. A well balanced, easy drinking ale.

Mouthfeel is light, crisp and smooth. Good carbonation and easy drinking. Makes for a good session beer. Overall, a tasty English brown ale with well balanced flavor profile. Would have this one again sometime.

Overall I gave this brew a rating of Enjoyable! Worth checking out.
