11th Jan 2014 and my pub crawl takes me to The Lion at Edgmond (Shropshire) and to my surprise an old friend is on the bar: good old Rosey Nosey. Iíve drank this in cask form at various pubs over the years but only rated the bottled version for some reason until now. My hand-pulled pint looked good, clear, dark brown with a ruby hue, slightly off-white head of semi-deep foam. Aroma is like a Christmas pudding, caramel and cinnamon notes giving it a fairly sweet smell. Taste wise it has a hop front with malted biscuits and dark winter fruits coming through the fairly start , this is a complicated, well made brew and one I like to try every year if possible.

Cask at the Rose & Crown, High Wycombe. Pours a red-brown with a small off-white head. Dry red wine dominates, with some caramel, sour cherry and dusty wardrobes coming through. I canít believe it- itís a Batemanís beer that I actually like. I didnít know they had it in them!

stravale (2101) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - DEC 29, 2012
Cask @ Abbey Inn, Kinloss 281212
Nut brown, clear, dense white head, good lacing
Aroma - Caramel toffee malts, soft minerals, slight sulphur
Taste of caramel malts, some burnt toffee, fruity malts, some yeast, hedgerow english hops, dab of minerals, definite dark English ale
Palate - Medium body, fairly smooth. Finish as main flavour, moderate bitter linger and a touch of bitter roast
Overall - One of the best Batemanís beers Iíve had - helped that it was fresh and in crackiní condition

MalcolmTucker (740) - SCOTLAND - DEC 27, 2012
Cask. Dark copper with a beige head. Sour, ripe fruit dominates flavour and aroma. An ugly sting of hoppy bitterness to finish. Poor.
