COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle; Regular.
Previously 5.0%
Note: The cask version is 4.5% and has a separate listing.

The second of our series of three Jubilee beers (see Treetops and Canberra) which are inspired by ingredients from around the Commonwealth.
Based on a classic IPA recipe which uses Imperial Malt along with Chinook, Simcoe and Pacific Jade hops. However the additional special ingredients of Jaggery (raw cane sugar from India bought from Southall market), Jasmine Petals, Cardamom and Coriander produce a distinctive twist to this “Indies Pale Ale”.
The resultant beer is a pale, smooth, full IPA with a distinct bitterness and with a hop aroma that is enhanced by a touch of the exotic!
Our beer is named after the original “Kohinoor”, the large diamond at the centre piece of the Coronation Crown used in 1953 and whose history is traced for over 1000 years though we think this beer is a diamond of equal brilliance!

Leighton (14389) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 14, 2015
Bottle at home in London - sourced from Beermerchants. Pours clear gold with a frothy, off-white head. The aroma holds bready malts, some herbal hops, spices, pine. Medium sweet flavor with some ripe berry fruits, subtle mint, orange peel, lightly toasted bread, earth, grains, spices. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Finishes with further spice character, graham cracker, toasted grains, ripe berries. Novel stuff, but I imagine this beer would be better without the spicing.

Theydon_Bois (12885) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2015
Bottle at home, post decorating wind down, 01/04/15. Clear amber golden with a well appointed off white cap. Nose is biscuit malt, caramel, earthy hop, citric peel, trace of soap. Taste comprises light floral notes, jasmine tea, touch of grapefruit, orange peel, earthy hop. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with earthy hop bitterness. Ok number, easy drinking, not sure it’s an IPA style wise - shades of I suppose but only just.
