682: Rebellion | Roasted Nuts Extra.

20201216_170100The Brewery: “The story of the Rebellion Brewery starts with two friends, Tim Coombes and Mark Gloyens. Attending school together in Marlow at a time when the old Wethered Brewery was in full production, the sweet aromas of malt were a constant reminder that Marlow was an active brewing town……….the Rebellion Brewery was eventually established on the Rose Industrial Estate in Marlow Bottom in April 1993. In 1999 the brewery moved to its current location on Bencombe Farm, occupying the old grainstore and other redundant farm buildings.”

The Beer: “Based on our ever-popular winter cask beer, Roasted Nuts Extra is brewed to a higher strength to make this bottled Version a true 'Winter Warmer'.The rich malt character is complimented by the fruit flavours from the Cascade & Bramling Cross Hops.Think of this beer as a Claret, best served at cellar temperature. Whilst it can be enjoyed at any time, its deep, complex nature marries beautifully with hearty winter stews and red meats.”

A stay in Henley-on-Thames before Christmas meant a visit to the brewery shop at nearby Marlow was a must, where I bought a multi-pack of ‘Winter Warmers’.

I thought I would like this - given how much I enjoyed the standard Roasted Nuts - and I was right. Superb, delightfully rich and malty. 5.8% A.B.V.
