Darwin Richmond Ale
Cask; Regular. Also available bottle conditioned.
Brewed to recreate the local beers drunk in the Richmond and North Yorkshire areas. Richmond Ale is a double brown ale with brown and specialist crystal malt and Fuggles hops. Richmond Ale is fermented with a Richmond yeast and is based on the style of beer popular in the 1880's when British brewing was at its peak. It is moderately strong in alcohol and carries a malty mouthfeel with just enough bitterness to persist in the aftertaste and balance a smooth mouthfeel.
Color ranges from reddish-brown to dark brown. Lower in alcohol than porter, medium to full body flavor. Appropriate foods are apple pie, pork with brown sauce, beef vegetable soup and cheddar.
