Why the WOOD DUCK name, well when it’s being poured it takes time to settle just like its name sake. This beer is light in colour, rich in flavour and has that classic tight creamy head formed from the nitrogen gas used to dispense it. As with most enjoyable beers simplicity is the key so we kept the ingredient simple using just pale barley malt, a small amount of coloured barley malt, a small quantity of low bittering hops and a generous though some would say no where near enough finishing hops to make WOOD DUCK appealing to all beer drinkers.

Beautiful inviting aroma, sweet malt. Looks great good creamy head. Tastes......creamy, bitter sweet aftertaste. Love this beer, highly sessionable. Hard not to have two....or three.

Nitro kegged pint at Kings St Wharf Brewhouse, Darling Harbour, Sydney which is the location of the Red Tape Brewing Co microbrewery. Now 4.8% ABV. Mainstream beers are also on sale at the Brewhouse (usually not a good sign). This one pours cloudy light golden with a thick lasting creamy white head that clings to the glass. Nose is biscuity malts with a light earthy hop presence and this is reflected on the tongue with a smooth creamy mouthfeel and low carbonation. Not much hop bitterness as befits this style but the malt bill makes up for it. Medium-light body.

A really smooth beer, goes down smooth and a beautiful creamy head.. Great on the palate. The use of nitrogen and the smoothness of this drop can lead to having one too many quite quickly. On tap at King St Brewhouse and brewed on sight. A nice beer to try but be sure to pace yourself as it can creep up very quickly..
