The Herbalist Returns!

By sarahhowe, also posted in News on

The HerbalistMaking a welcome return to the pumps of Nicholson's Pubs and Castle Inns is The Herbalist, our Magic Rock Brewing collaboration beer. The Herbalist is a golden saison available during The Nicholson's Autumn Beer Festival whilst stocks last. Tasting Notes & Ingredients A 4.8% abv golden saison brewed with Pale ale, pilsner and pale rye malts and hopped with Mosaic, Citra, Vix Secret and four herbs (pineapple weed, pineapple sage, lemon thyme and lemon verbena) to create a fruity beer with aromas of lemon, mango and pineapple and a spicy saison dry finish. What’s the story? The Herbalist is a collaboration beer brewed in Southwold by Adnams' Head Brewer, Fergus Fitzgerald, and Magic Rock Head Brewer, Stuart Ross. As a homage to Saison du Buff (a three way collaboration beer brewed by Dogfish Head, Stone and Victory breweries) this beer has plenty of complex, spicy flavours from the use of Saison yeast blended with our Adnams yeast, which are balanced by bags of citrus and tropical fruit aromas from the bold New World hops. To back up these fruity flavours, and because it seemed like fun, we’ve added four herbs which add even more fruity flavours to this bold beer. Want to know more? The Herbalist is available for a limited time on cask at Nicholson's Pubs and Castle Inns. Contains Barley Watch our Head Brewer, Fergus Fitzgerald, talk about the beer here:
