From Oxfordshire England’s Wychwood Brewery in partnership with Duchy Originals comes the “Duchy Originals Old Ruby Ale 1905”. This ale pours an amber colour with an off white head. The beer smells of sweet malts. The taste consists of sweet roasted malts, caramel, toffee and some fruit (melon) with a light hops bitterness. The women could taste sauerkraut but the men could not who knows? This is an average beer and would be good to sit down an drink a few but it is not to special.
This beer was part of Mikes Craft Beer’s first ever tasting and was rated as follows: Tom 6/10, Carmen 7/10, Stu 6/10 and Me 6/10.
