Thwaites Frothy Moth

2013-05-04 19.16.03

Thwaites Frothy Moth is a light amber ale with a thin white head that is surprisingly long lasting.  It’s something of a mystery as it doesn’t seem to be listed on the Thwaites website, so I’ve no idea what Thwaites thinks of it!  The aroma is floral, hoppy and a little spicy, and the taste is mild, slightly fruity and with only the merest after taste of bitter.  At 4% ABV, it would be a fine session ale, though I drank it as an accompanimemt to home-cooked trout with toasted almonds and lemon.

Thwaites Nutty Black

IMG_20130427_225046

Thwaites Nutty Black says that it’s a curiously dark beer, and yes, it’s dark, though I’m unsure how curious it is!  It’s a deep, deep red colour with a light tan head that lasts well.  The aroma is slighty nutty, though this is not too pornounced.  The flavour isn’t too heavy for such a dark beer:  malty and slightly liquorice, and this flavour lasts well.  To be honest, this beer might be one of just four that have been named as Champion Beer of Britain twice, but I find it really hard to describe how it is distinctive (and this is the second time that I have tried to review Nutty Black, having given up once before).  This 3.9% ABV bottle-conditioned ale would go well with something like a treacle sponge pudding or any other similar sweet and robust hot dessert.
