3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
1st February 2013
Cask at the Brewpub. Almost clear gold beer, residual white head. Light palate, semi dry with mild carbonation. Light citric bitterness - grapefruit - lemo. Touch of floralness. Crisp dry finish with a good bitter linger. Light and refreshing but Duchess is not a ’wow’ hop, but hats off to Howling Hops for showcasing it.
