Duchy Originals Organic Select Ale (500ml Bottle)
Available exclusively in Waitrose Stores over the Winter Months, this is a higher strength winter-time beer incorporating a range of organic cereals. The recipe includes the same organic Plumage Archer barley malt as Duchy Originals Ale, but with the Home Farm's organic rye and oats added to give complexity and fullness of flavour. The hop grist is a blend of the organic dwarf hop First Gold, sourced from the Hereford-Worcester border; and organic Target hops grown near Paddock Wood in Kent. The combination of these organic ingredients has given Duchy Originals Winter Ale a dark ruby colour and warming toffee flavour, with hints of fruit and spice
Dark red amber colour. quickly disappearing head. chocolate sweet malt nose. sweet flavour, wee bit of smoke and burnt plums. bitter finish, fairly decent.
