COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Duke is brewed exclusively for locals. But it takes its inspiration from Europe, the spiritual home of craft beer. The Germans would be proud of this Helles-style, mid strength. Shame they can’t have any.

Very pale, anemic looking body and a coaster thin head. Light malty bread and hay with minimal floral hop note. Sweetish taste, light body, thin and pretty boring. As far as mid strength beers goes, average.

From a bottle. Pours a clear golden colour with a thin white head, a peaty malt flavour with a thin feel. Not too bad.

Pretty average beer, just a fancy midstrength to break the commerical market. Aroma is a lot like most lagers, metallic or detergenty with a bit of malt. Appearance is golden with a fast-dissappearing clean white head. Taste is probably the better of the things about this beer, you can taste the malts, but after that not much, palate is boringly bitter. Overall a drinkable, but not amazing lager.

330ml bottle. A new year and a new beer. I thought I would try the latest offering from one of the few local breweries in the area. Eye catching bright green label certainly gets your attention and makes this bottle stand out from others on the shelf. Very pale and clear when poured into a lager glass. There is no head at all with only a few small bubbles skimming across the surface. Strong malt aroma leads to a detergent like aroma filling the nose. Strong grainy flavour that is very malty with a long strong finish and a good mouthfeel. Initial reaction is one of dislike but as you drink it the flavour grows on you. Paired nicely with salmon and brie spring rolls as the flavour of the beer cuts through the grease of the spring rolls. Okay but not the best of the Duke range of beers.
