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!

RichardW (1813) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - OCT 14, 2012
Bottle beermerchants.com. Very unusual mix of flavours. Peachy sweet aroma, giving strong candy flavours initially. The aroma calms down but the sweetness remains on the tongue throughout. I have mixed feelings about this. A bit too sweet but quite satisfying at the same time...!
